St. Paddy's Day is quickly approaching. To ensure you last through your 8 a.m. pregame and the full darty you'll be attending, pound one of these classic Irish coffees first thing in the morning. And remember (coffee before) liquor before beer!
1.5 ounces Irish Whiskey
6 ounces hot, strong coffee
Optional: 3/4 ounce Irish cream, or a teaspoon of brown sugar, for a sweet kick
Pour the whiskey into a large coffee mug. Add the hot coffee. If you're adding sugar or cream, do so now and stir until it dissolves. Add a hefty serving of whipped cream on top (spring break is over, after all). Garnish with green sprinkles (they have clover–shaped ones at FroGro) for a festive touch.
