• Oh man… if only I could drink. Love the photos!

    • Hi Cheryl, Oh man, I wish you could too. You would love this drink. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    I tend to use Jameson for coffee (you have to have your affiliation when drinking Irish whiskey).

    • Hi Jon, LOL… So true my friend, so true. What ever you use or your affiliation, this is one dang good cocktail. 🙂

  • Julie

    This is one of my favorite cocktails. I never new how to make it and now I do. Thanks. 😀

    • Hi Julie, That is very cool. Have fun with this and Happy Holidays, 🙂

  • Nooooo…….must…..resist…..
    Sure, save it for the 11th day, we needed it everyday!!!

    • Hi Mike, Oh no you mustn’t… LOL. I like the everyday thought… hee, hee. 🙂

  • I’m salivating just thinking about it!! Can’t wait to try it!

    • Hi There, I know what you mean. It’s the best ever to celebrate with. 🙂

  • Stephanie Ruby Feldman

    More a Baileys girl myself, but bet my daughters would love this!

    • Hi Stephanie, I do love Bailey’s and coffee too. This recipe is all about tradition and I love that too. Happy Holudays my new friend. :)))

  • I’m sure if I drink a few of those I won’t feel so bad about the container of candied popcorn I’ve been chowing on for the last few days. I wonder what the entire calorie count of all your recipes for this contest would be? YUM!

    • So true Jeri… LOL. You don’t even want to know… I lost count… hee, hee.

  • Lubna

    Susan, while X’mas is not widely celebrated in the area in which I now live, you sure are ensuring that the cheer reaches me across the seas. Happy holidays.

    • Ah Lubna, What a nice thing to say. It pleases me that I am able, in some small way, bring some of our holiday cheer to you. 🙂

  • I used to love going to the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco that was famous for it’s Irish Coffee. Some of you might have been there. This is a delicious drink, but so good you have to watch it. More than one, between the coffee, sugar & the alcohol -woosh!

    • Hi A.K. I have heard of it but have not yet been there. It’s fun to watch someone put this together. It’s also fun to make it ourselves… LOL

  • I do not like coffee can’t even stand the smell of it…………..

    • Hi Jo-Ann, One of my closest friend feels the same. I give her spiked Hot Cocoa instead. 😀

  • We used to have Irish coffee at a place in New Orleans called Molly’s at the Market back in the day. It’s a French 1/4 spot but on the more local side of the 1/4, and Irish themed so they made sure tey did this one right, had a traditional and a frozen sort of milk shake type concoction, this post brought back some nice memories.

    • Hi There, It’s been awhile but I remember that place. I am so glad this recipe was able to bring back some very nice memories. 🙂

  • The funny thing is I have never had Irish Coffee. I should now.

    • Patrick that is funny. You must and soon… LOL

  • Jeannette Paladino

    Susan — you’re the best. My daughter-in-law loves Irish coffee and I will use your recipe at Christmas. Thanks!

    • Hi Jeannette, That is so cool. I am so happy I can do that for you. Enjoy your family and Merry Christmas my friend. 🙂

  • So simple. And I already have all the ingredients in my home! This will make a good alternative to those who don’t want the mulled wine. 🙂 ~Krisha

    • Krisha, You got that right. I will have the Mulled Wine, Irish Coffee and a spiked Egg Nog for a family and friends holiday gathering. That usually makes everyone happy. 🙂

  • Lisa J. Jackson

    Oh, yum! I love coffee … and whiskey (I use it as a cold remedy in tea with honey and lemon). I wonder what I’ll like better – this or the mulled wine. Hhhm. Only time will tell! Thanks, Susan. Another recipe for my coffer. 🙂

    • Hi Lisa, You must tell me what wins out the Irish Coffee or the Mulled Wine. 🙂

    It’s been far too long since I’ve had an Irish coffee! How I used to love ordering special coffees: Irish, Greek, Spanish. LOVE them all! Happy Holidays, Susan!

    • Hi Doreen, I’m with you, I also love them all. I had not had a good irish coffee for a while so making one was a real treat. 🙂

    hi susan; now this is more my style. and its even easier to make now that most of us are using th single cup coffee makers. I like using an oversized mug for coffee anyway. I wonder if I could substitute some peppermint schnapps? now next winter all i’ll need is the fireplace and someone to share a couple with. take care, max

    • Cool Max, I love this recipe and all the flavors it imparts. I know you will too. 🙂
