Irish Coffee Is the Perfect After-Dinner Drink for Frosty Evenings

Irish CoffeeIf you're entertaining this holiday season and looking for a delicious after-dinner drink that doesn't require a ton of time or ingredients, Irish Coffee is the way to go! Topped with whipped cream and some freshly ground nutmeg, it's the sweet pick-me-up you've been craving.


Is there anything better than a warm and wonderful drink on a chilly evening? It's even more perfect when it comes together in a flash.

"The traditional Irish Coffee recipe just calls for just three simple ingredients: freshly brewed coffee (you can use decaf if desired late at night), Irish whiskey (or any will do), and your desired sweetener. I love turbinado sugar or honey," says Ali of Gimme Some Oven, who shares her recipe on her blog.
