Irish Coffee for Winter #WarmUpDrinks

Happy New Year and welcome to the second installment of the Winter Warm-Up Drink Series hosted by Ellen of Family Around the Table! For the next five Fridays, now, we'll be featuring winter drinks guaranteed to warm you right up!

Stay Warm With These Sips

I readily admit that mine isn't a traditional Irish coffee. For one, I didn't use Irish whiskey. I had Scotch whiskey. And secondly, I don't sweeten it or use whipped cream. I prefer to add a dollop of foamed milk on top. But I am always of the mindset that you use what you have. And no matter what whiskey you use, I think this is a steaming cup of goodness that will warm you right up on a chilly evening.

Ingredients makes 2
  • 6 ounces strong coffee (I use a stovetop espresso machine and a dark roast coffee)
  • 1-1/2 ounces Scotch whiskey
  • foamed milk

Pour whiskey (3/4 ounce per cup) into serving glasses. Pour in hot coffee.

Top the coffee with a dollop of foam and don't stir. Drink the coffee through the foam.

    I actually love coffee in brownies cause it enriches the chocolate flavor, I love the mix! Can't wait to try these!!
