Irish Coffee

Day 345



Irish Coffee
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 is a photo of the end result:

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

Cheers!!
