I love the flavor that the Irish whiskey gives to the coffee and then the luscious whipped cream that melts into the coffee to make it oh so creamy. It’s my favorite drink to have as a dessert.
I’m not much of an aficionado of coffee, but I know what I like — rich, smooth coffee that’s not bitter.
The ever popular “America Runs on Dunkin” variety is A.O.K when on the run. Another is from a local coffee house in the “city” where I used to work. They brewed their own blends and were always deliciously rich and smooth and not as expensive as some other coffee shops.
I’m sure there are terrific independent coffee houses in many cities. It’s good to know we can get the perfect cup o’ joe wherever we may be.
Here’s my tip for the week. When your day is just an ordinary day, make a specialty coffee for dessert. It turns the ordinary into a very special day.
All you need is a large cup of your favorite coffee, a shot of your favorite liqueur – or Irish Whiskey if you have it and a big dollop of whipped cream. Here is my Irish Coffee recipe.
