What does your morning routine look like? For me, I have to have a cup of coffee every morning. It's not even a caffeine addiction. I just like routines. Whether it was water, juice, tea, cocoa, or a particular breakfast item, I like to have a routine and coffee is just a delicious part of that routine.
But let's face it, some mornings, your regular cup of coffee just doesn't do it for you. And with St. Patrick's Day coming up, I thought, what better way to celebrate than with a good old cup of Irish Coffee. To make mine even more Irish, I used my O'Donnell's Irish Cream, which you can pick up from any Aldi's store. The O'Donnell's brand of Irish Cream is a direct product from Ireland just like Bailey's. So feel free to use either one (O'Donnell's is much cheaper though at only $8 per bottle). Because I believe the best part of waking up, is Bailey's in your cup! (Someone get Folger's on the line and tell them I have a new slogan for them).
BAILEYS™ IRISH COFFEE
The classic cold weather cocktail taken to new heights of flavor with Baileys Original Irish Cream.
2 OZ Baileys™ Original Irish Cream
6 OZ Hot Coffee
1 OZ Irish Whiskey
1 DOLLOP Whipped Cream (optional)
- Combine Baileys, coffee and Irish Whiskey in a tall "Irish Coffee" glass. I went with the first mug I found in my cupboard, but the glasses typically look like this.
- Top with whipped cream.
