2.5 shots out of 5
I can't believe we made it......sometimes it seems like the shortest weeks can be the longest. I am super glad that this week is over and that we are onto the weekend. Since it has been such a long week and I feel like I lost this weeks energy yesterday, I decided to find and make a coffee (hot coffee) cocktail this evening.
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. First off, I was supposed to "float" the cream on top of this cocktail. Yea......didn't work. Reason being is that I needed my cocktail to be higher up in the glass so that I could get my spoon down to the top of it while I layered the cream. Oh well, a quick stir fixes everything, I guess. I can definitely taste this cocktails potential and if I liked whiskey a bit more, this cocktail would be better. What I really taste is this cocktail is the whiskey.....don't get me wrong I can totally taste the coffee and cream as well, but the whiskey gives me too much of a bite which turns me off to this cocktail a bit.
Here is the recipe for an Irish Coffee:
- 2 1/2 oz hot coffee
- 1 1/2 oz Irish Whiskey
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 oz whipping cream
In a glass coffee mug pour in all of your items except for the whipping cream. Stir them up well. Float your whipping cream on top.

Here's to a long week being over and a fun weekend on the horizon!
