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 a photo of the end result:

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!
