Saint Patrick’s Day is such a fun time of the year! It is a signal that spring is near, a great chance to break the routine and celebrate the Irish heritage and to embrace some delicious foods, treats, and cocktails!

This recipe is easy to prepare and it is really perfect for any day of the year when you could benefit from both a drink and a cup of coffee! It is sweet, strong and packs a decadent kick! We love to have an Irish Coffee on both chilly nights and after especially busy days!
