The Irish Winter brings together two of our favorite ways to drink coffee. It is a subtle transformation of the classic Irish Coffee recipe that originally included Kahlua Coffee Cream, a great enhancement for the average cup of coffee. The same Irish whiskey, coffee and luscious whipped cream topping are in this drink, but it is that liqueur that brings a unique creaminess to the base of the drink.
The original recipe called for equal parts Jameson and Kahlua Coffee Cream. The cream liqueur comes and goes from the market, so if you find it, be sure to pick it up. Otherwise, you can use this revised recipe that combines Irish cream with the standard bottle of Kahlua to get the same effect. Either way, it's a fantastic way to spike your coffee.
