Drink O' The Irish

Today's recipe comes from Gourmet Today edited by Ruth Reichel

Get ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in delicious style with this recipe.

Irish Coffee

(Makes 4 Drinks)
Active Time: 10 minutes
Start to Finish: 10 minutes

A delicious excuse to pull those stemmed mugs out of the china closet (though regular mugs work fine), Irish coffee is warming and invigorating. Don't add too much sugar to the whipped cream, though, or the drink will be cloying.

6 ounces (3/4 cup) Irish whiskey
2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
3 cups freshly brewed strong hot coffee
Lightly sweetened whipped cream

Combine 3 tablespoons whiskey and 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar each in four 8-ounce mugs. Divide coffee among mugs and stir until sugar is dissolved; stir in more sugar if desired. Top each drink with a dollop of whipped cream.
