Irish Coffee

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

by Adele

With all the recent snow (which has thankfully disappeared now), there were many nights of just staying in & cosying up with plenty of hot drinks to keep warm.
As a special treat, one night I made us an Irish Coffee, following this recipe.

Taste wise, it satisfied in every way, however I struggled to get the cream to separate fully from the coffee, which was somewhat disappointing. The trick is to pour the cream really slowly over the back of a spoon...I obviously wouldn't make a very good Barista!

served with Amaretto Biscuits

Have you ever tried to make an Irish Coffee?

 Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies

Ooh yum! I never make this at home but a Dublin restaurant called Chapter One makes what I think is probably the best Irish coffee in the world! xo

It's okay, it's prettier mixed up anyway! :-)

We have a snowy, icy day today. Perhaps I'll make one to really settle in and enjoy it.
