Dad's Irish Coffee

"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."

    This was a little stout for even me. I'll cut back on the whiskey next time. I added a pinch of sugar to made up for not using the whipped cream (that I didn't have) and it helped the taste for us. Made for a great afternoon coffee drink. Thanks. Made for Spring PAC 2013

    It was a little bit too sweet for our taste. Maybe it would be enough creme de cacao in the bottom of the glass. No more on top. Thanks Notherjack :) Made for Cookbook tag game

    Oh this is delicious. I didn't follow it quite exactly; I didn't have whipped cream but sweetened it with some brown sugar and added some evaporated milk for some creaminess. I found the whiskey overpowering.. so I added more creme de cacao, haha. It made sense to me at the time! I will be happy and warm tonight! Thanks :)
