Drinks all around

Sarah Madl

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought it would be a good idea to provide a few good, festive drinks. There is always Irish beer as the standby, but I have set out to provide something a little different from the usual. I need to clear up a couple of details. First, a jigger is a 1.5 ounce measure used in cocktail recipes. Second, I am not to be held responsible for the things you do that could be deemed stupid while you drink these. Otherwise, enjoy!

Irish Coffee

Heat a stemmed whiskey goblet; pour in one jigger of Irish whiskey, 3 cubes of sugar. Fill goblet to within 1 inch of brim with black coffee. Stir to dissolve sugar, top with slightly aerated whipped cream, so that the cream floats on top.
