There's more than one way to make Irish Coffee, and everyone who enjoys this winter warmer may have their own particular preference. However, it shouldn't contain Irish Cream, nor any nutty liqueurs. It's not a flavored coffee pre-mix either. It's just a simple, warm drink that might be the perfect choice this weekend on a cold holiday evening. I'd like to walk you through the basic preparation so if you are new to this cocktail you can get the most out of it. If you already enjoy ordering Irish Coffee, here's how you can make this soothing sipper at home.
First, you will need some Irish whiskey. I'm no expert, but Jameson and Bushmills are both reasonably priced and easy to find. If you want to try a more expensive spirit, go ahead. Can you make a good drink with bourbon or rye? Probably—it's just not what we are making
