"Put some whiskey in my coffee because it's Ireland somewhere!"
Yes, it's that special time of year where "us Irish" proudly wear our green! My father had an incredible ensemble (outfit) a light suede jacket in a beautiful shade of green and a turtleneck....also a lighter shade of green...with the slacks. He certainly was handsome with that gorgeous silver hair and hazel eyes. And off he and my mom went to the Irish parties in the neighborhood.
So...in honor of St Patick's Day, I have included the original Irish Coffee recipe. Have a get together this weekend with your family & friends and offer this tasty coffee drink.
Here is the original Joe Sheridan Irish Coffee Recipe:
Cream - Rich as an Irish Brogue
Coffee - Strong as a Friendly Hand
Sugar - Sweet as the tongue of a Rogue
Whiskey - Smooth as the Wit of the Land.
Pre-heat a clear stemmed glass with very hot water. Empty the water, and add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar. Now add some freshly brewed rich coffee and stir. As soon as the sugar is melted, add a generous measure of Irish Whiskey (about 2.5cl). Stir again, then wait for the brew to still. Now take a hot teaspoon and pour gently whipped fresh cream slowly over the back of the spoon. The cream should be "half whipped" i.e. not too stiff and not too liquid.
I suggest Johnny Lolita's Turquoise Trail, Brazil Dark and Costa Rica as your coffee base for this wonderful Irish drink. Cheers, or if you wish to say it in gaelic, Sláinte
