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.

  • 2 T butter

  • In a large saucepan melt 2 T butter over medium heat, add 1/4 cup Guinness Stout and the onions. Cook until completely caramelized and golden brown, about 1 hour, mixing every 10-15 minutes and adding water or Guinness to deglaze the pan as needed to prevent burning.

  • Add the stout and deglaze the pan.

  • Ladle the soup into oven-proof bowls on a baking sheet, top with the sliced bread and cheese and broil until cheese melts, about 1-3 minutes.
