I discover this amazing warm and delightful drink believe it or not just last winter on St Patty's day. I was out for dinner with a friend and after coming in from the cold to an Irish restaurant , I was freezing, suddenly not waning the usually cold beer, I asked the waiter what would be the best drink to warm me up, he suggested an Irish coffee. I fell in love, started now making them at home on cold nights.
Divide 2 tsp sugar ( some people prefer brown sugar) and 2 once Irish whiskey between two coffee mugs. Stir in 2 cups hot strong brewed coffee. In a small bowl beat 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 tsp creme de menthe until thickened. Gentle spoon into top of drinks allowing cream to float, sever immediately
