Cocktail Friday :: Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee

The Austin Celtic Festival is in Austin this weekend so we thought we’d celebrate in true Celtic fashion with a classic tasty cocktail – Irish Coffee. This yummy number will warm you up during the cold nights ahead and  fill you with joy.

It doesn’t matter if you’re Irish or not, this beverage is not one to pass up. Share this cocktail with friends at your next event!

Another exciting event that is happening this weekend is that our very own Design Maven| Dani Alvarado is getting married to a very LUCKY guy. Congrats to the happy couple and cheers to the weekend!

Here’s an Irish toast to you all: May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.

Irish Coffee


    • 2 ounces Irish whiskey
    • 5 to 6 ounces coffee
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • heavy cream


Pour the whiskey, coffee, and sugar* into a stemmed, heated glass mug. Stir, then top off with a thick layer of lightly whipped heavy cream. If too lazy or inebriated or depressed to bother whipping the stuff, just pour an ounce or two in over the back of a spoon. In either case, don’t stir it in, and really don’t drizzle crème de menthe over the top. Now you have your very own Irish Coffee.
