Spiced Irish Coffee

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

From a recipe booklet entitled "Family Living - Our Favorite Coffee Shop Treats". This seems like a low-fat recipe, and I would use Splenda in place of the sugar in the coffee. NOTE: Recipe calls for 1 whole nutmeg, I'm estimating 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg.

I really enjoyed this flavorful coffee FloridaNative. It was delicious. The whisky gives it such a nice depth. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely treat, which I will make again. Made for Comfort Cafe Chalet 2010.
