Happy St. Patrick's Day {Irish Coffee Recipe}

“Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass 
all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat.” 

― Alex Levin

What more of an intro could I offer to top this?

1 & 1/2 oz. Irish whiskey
1 tsp. brown sugar
6 oz. hot coffee
1 oz. heavy cream whipped slightly {I used my Magic Bullet!}

Combine whiskey, sugar and coffee in a mug and stir to dissolve. Float cold cream gently on top and sprinkle with a wee bit of the brown sugar.  Say the following....
May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand. 

...and raise the glass to your lips. 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
