How to Make an Irish Coffee

Everyone knows the Irish are known to like a drink or two and they have invented ways to drink morning noon and night. While recently visiting the Marker Hotel in Dublin the bar Manager Paul Malone taught me how to make an Irish Coffee a perfect drink to get your morning started.

Typically I don’t like coffee (honestly can’t stand the stuff) but I figured I would try this thinking that maybe the sugar, cream and Jameson’s might mask the taste. After having a sip I was presently surprised and actually quite liked the drink. I’m not about to start enjoying coffee any time soon but I could definitely see myself enjoying one of these every now and then. Especially now that I know how to make them and I have a limited edition special label bottle of Jameson kicking around the house. (Thanks Jameson!)
