How to Make Irish Coffee

I am a big lover of hot coffee cocktails, like Irish Coffee. And it is no small wonder, you do remember I live in cold Canada, right? The first hot coffee cocktail I ever had, was a Spanish Coffee. I don't remember where it was, but I do remember it was pure heaven...and I may have had two!

Even I have my limits!!

Well, today I was puttering around the house and catching up on some weekly chores.  I sat my coffee on the island while I went down to put on a load of laundry, came back up stairs and...you guessed it...my 12 year old … [Read more...]
