A twist on Irish coffee, this was a tasty little drink. I ended up doing three drinks out of it. The original recipe called for six servings. I don’t get it though, it would have really have just been, basically, a shot of coffee! I
guess it could be done, but with 6 ounces of coffee per cup, I would drink that in one gulp!! So, here we go!


4 cups strong, freshly brewed coffee
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Irish whiskey


1) Place all ingredients in a saucepan and allow to simmer. DO NOT BOIL!!



1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons whiskey


1) Whip the whipping cream. Once stiff, add the sugar and whiskey.

Then: Pour coffee mixture into cup and top with spiked whipped cream.


About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
