I remember my one and only taste of Irish Coffee. Mr. D and I visited his cousin. Rick, that lives in Charlotte at least 30 years ago. We had a wonderful meal and our after dinner cocktail was Irish Coffee. If I remember correctly, this was the first time we ever dined with them and I did not like the Irish Coffee at all. However, being a good guest I didn’t say anything and drank it. I think the sweetness of the brown sugar combined with the whiskey is probably what I didn’t like about the coffee.
When I saw this, I thought it would be a good beverage for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. I also included the Leprechaun Scene as I thought it would be an easy and appropriate centerpiece for the day. The two recipes are from my Holiday House Traditions Cookbook published by the Hickory Junior Woman’s Club. It was published in 1980 and I have used it many times since I purchased it so many years ago.
We have dined many times with cousin Rick and his wife Kathy. They are world travelers and we always enjoy visiting with them. They have great stories to tell and we always share great laughs and experiences. I know when we visit them Rick will have some type of exotic beverage for us to try. The last time was a Guinness beer concoction and as Mr. D snickered when it was presented to me, I was just totally honest and said it wasn’t my taste. No one was offended and it was just another laugh we could all share together. Isn’t that the fun of dining with great family and friends?
Happy weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by.
