The few weeks of fall we had sure were nice, huh? Now that a freakishly early Polar Vortex is sweeping most of the nation, it’s time to cozy up with a cocktail that will not only give you a false sense of warmth, it will actually warm your insides — at least for a few minutes.
This Irish Cream Coffee recipe is an easy take on an Irish Coffee, which is traditionally made with black coffee, whiskey, brown sugar, and cream. This shortcut simply calls for Bailey’s Irish Cream in place of the cream and sugar. Not too boozy, or too sweet, it’s perfect for an after-dinner drink, but it also goes really well with a stack of pancakes on a cold winter (or late fall) morning.
Irish Cream Coffee
6 ounces piping-hot coffee
1 ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream
½ ounce Jameson Irish Whiskey
Method: Add the coffee, Irish cream and whiskey to the glass, stir and top off with a dollop (or spray) of whipped cream. Enjoy and stay warm.
