Who out there celebrates St. Patrick's day with a hearty Irish Feast? Anyone?
I'm not going to lie. My St. Paddy's day usually revolves around getting to Fibber's unreasonably early to beat the line and enjoying some green beer, or at the very least, Bud Light in a festive green aluminum can. I've never actually stopped to enjoy the Irish fare, which i'm not entirely sure is even served at Fibbers on St. Patrick's day.
As such, my knowledge of Irish food is quite limited. This year, however, we are having an Irish feast at my office to celebrate. I'm so excited, but I will admit it was hard for me to think of something to contribute. I decided I'm going to make iced Irish Coffee. Who doesn't love Irish Coffee? Or at the very least, a little Bailey's Irish Cream in their cup o' joe? Here's my recipe:
Frozen Irish Coffee:
* 2 oz. Coffee Concentrate
* 2 oz. brown sugar simple syrup (equal parts brown sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves)
* 1 oz. whiskey
* 1 oz. Baileys
* 2 oz. cream or half & half
* 2 c. ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Enjoy!
