Irish Coffee is a great drink after a long day or for a brunch with friends.  If you are not into any kind of alcohol,  just disregard this recipe.  St. Patrick’s Day and Christmas are two times during the year that I enjoy this drink but this coffee is good anytime.  Make yourself a cup and try this recipe.  I think you will be surprised how good it is and if you are a coffee lover this is a wonderful variation to add to your coffee recipes.

1 1/2 ounces of Irish Whiskey, Bushmills or Jameson are both good to use.
6 ounces hot black coffee
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Whipped cream
Pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg, Optional
1 maraschino cherry, Optional
Pour whiskey into cup or glass, add sugar and black hot coffee.  Stir.  Add whipped cream. Sprinkle with pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg.  Can add maraschino cherry on top.  Enjoy!
