Irish Coffee Recipe Just in Time for St. Patrick’s Day

Irish Coffee is Yummy Goodness!

I’m not this huge coffee lover.  I like it but it’s not one of those things I have to have. I enjoy it when out with friends and with a really good creamer. But I made this Irish Coffee simply to put on the blog and it was so000 good. I’m not sure why anyone would go out for coffee with this recipe. Check it out and let me know what you think. 

Here’s the simple picture of ingredients for the Irish Coffee.

Finally Here’s the Irish Coffee Recipe

And My recipe! Yes, this is my own recipe I came up with! Remember I’m not a big drinker of alcohol so you may need to adjust the alcohol to your taste (or leave it out if you don’t like it).

What do you think? Will you try some Irish Coffee on St. Patrick’s Day?

  9. Eesh, I would skip the nutella! Just add bailey’s for me!

  10. I have a bit of Irish in me. Even so, I don’t drink. 😉

  11. This looks like a yummy recipe. Although I don’t drink coffe, I can just skip that part and go for the alcohol. 🙂

  12. Debbie L. says:

    Sounds interesting. I love Baileys & WIld Turkey – I will give the Nutella a try!

  13. I would love that minus the liquor. The Nutella is a delish addition

  14. I remember my parents having irish coffee only on st patricks day growing up. im sure they were a little heavier on the alcohol…

  15. SixFeetUnderBlog says:

    This looks very tasty. I love nutella and baileys. lol

  16. susannabarbee says:

    Yum! This looks delicious, and I love holiday-inspired drinks/cocktails. I definitely need to try this one.

    I have never had Irish coffee. I would like to try it.

  18. aleshafulltimemama says:

    I don’t drink alcohol, but the rest of it sounds amazing! Never had Irish Coffee, but if it includes hazelnut chocolate it HAS to be good!

  19. Liz (@blueviolet) says:

    Oh yum! It has Nutella in it? That sounds so good!

  20. I’ve only had Irish coffee once and didn’t like it. I think it was just the quality of the ingredients that were used in it because I really think this is something I would like. Maybe I’ll have to try making it myself!

  21. Felicia says:

    We love coffee around these parts. Thank you for sharing.

  22. That’s a unique twist. Perfect timing too, with the St. Patrick’s holiday two days away now. 🙂

  23. Jenni Polly Eaves says:
