How to Make Irish Coffee 

When I think about Irish coffee, I’m transported back to the Buena Vista in San Francisco.  Irish coffee always feels like a soft blanket to keep the chill of deep fog at bay.

This coffee cocktail is a mixture of brown sugar sweetened coffee, Irish whiskey, and topped with whipped cream.

This is so easy to make and prepare to feel pampered and enveloped by this warm coffee cocktail.
