Happy St. Patrick’s Day
What is your favorite St Patrick’s Day tradition? Do you celebrate at all or is it simply just another day?
Any holiday that comes up on a calendar, even the obscure ones like national donut day get elaborate due to the fact I am fully immersed in the hospitality industry and basically have been since I was 16.
In this business, a reason to celebrate is a reason to sell.
Any Holiday is translation for food and drink specials with customers galore. Holidays are fun and I help you celebrate them in the best way possible; through food and drink.
However, I must say after everyone else’s holiday enjoyment is had, the restaurant and bar staff who endured the hell we knew we were entering upon at the dawn of whatever holiday it may be, it’s time for us to partake in the last wee hours of our long, hard day.
We like to party too!
2020 is wild
Instead of Irish coffees on St. Patrick’s Day we all should really be having quarantinis! Martinis you drink while quarantined LOL!
Seriously though, I honestly don’t know how much celebrating will be going on for St. Patrick’s Day considering the Corona virus outbreak that’s going on.
We’re planning a classic corned beef brisket dinner at the restaurant, yet it’s been a ghost town because of the drama of community spread and the government advising people to stay home (which I get).
Hopefully we can get some relief soon or Easter may just be cancelled this year as well as St. Paddy’s day…
While you’re hunkered down in your house, maybe grab that bottle of baileys and brew yourself some favorite coffee. Add in some Jameson Irish whiskey and you’re set for a traditional Irish Coffee drink. Don’t forget the whipped cream!
Luckily though, Irish Coffee is good all year round. Sometimes it’s a nice substitute after dinner instead of that piece of chocolate cake. Definitely less calories!
Make this classic favorite coffee drink like your favorite bartender and I should know as I was one for over five years!
Here’s the not so secret ratios for the perfect Irish Coffee.
- 1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
- 1 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey
- 6 oz Brewed Hot Coffee
- Whipped Cream, Sprinkles (optional)
- This drink requires only the ability to pour!
Add your Jameson Whiskey and Baileys Irish Cream to your favorite coffee cup and add your preferred brand of fresh brewed hot coffee.
Finish with whipped cream and festive sprinkles!
Try this with cold brew coffee...it's amazing!
