Dad's Irish Coffee

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by Notherjack

This is a recipe my Dad invented that has brought my family many a pleasant winter evening. I have tried many different Irish coffees, this is by far the best ever. If you have a problem with caffeine you can substitute decaf coffee; or we have used 1/2 decaf and 1/2 regular grounds when making the coffee.

I'm not a coffee drinker but I decided to make this for friends. And the crowd went wild!!!! I made copies for everyone and they said be sure to thank Dad for sharing this. (Since I'm not a coffee drinker, how about posting some more recipes for me to try? Huh? Pretty please?? With sugar on it??? :-)
