St. Patrick's Day Drinks Start with an Irish Coffee
An Irish Coffee is the perfect way to start your St. Patrick's Day drink fest. It’s easy, and it’s breakfast. This is a beautiful, sweet, foamy coffee featuring whipped cream and whiskey. It almost looks like a Guinness beer. But it tastes like a coffee-liqueur treat. All you need for this St Patrick's Day cocktail is: coffee, brown sugar, heavy whipping cream, and Irish whiskey to get going. One thing that people have trouble with is getting the foam to stay atop the Irish coffee like in the pictures. It’s a simple fix, though. All you need is to look at the fattier whipping creams. That’s what gets your fluffy, buoyant cream rather than a slim layer of milk sitting on top of your Irish coffee.
Whether you're a whiskey lover, a green beer-drinker, or a Bailey's milkshake-sipper, we've got plenty of St. Patrick's Day drinks to wet your whistle.
