As we all know by now, I’m not a big coffee drinker. I’m also not a big fan of whiskey. So this holiday is right up my alley! (That’s what we call sarcasm, folks.)
I decided that I didn’t want to buy a whole bottle of whiskey just for today if I’m never going to drink it again, so I rummaged through my parents’ liquor cabinet and found this:
I mean, it’s not Irish, but it is whiskey. Or, apparently, “whisky.” And even though it says “This whisky is 6 years old,” I can guarantee that it’s been in my parents’ liquor cabinet for much longer than that. So…it’s aged.
I used this coffee:
I made the coffee, mixed in the brown sugar, and tossed in some whiskey. Whisky. Whatever.
My verdict? Not as bad as I was anticipating, but not particularly good either. On another note, I discovered that brown sugar in coffee is quite tasty.
Since I’m not sure that using old Canadian whisky counts as Irish coffee, here is a picture of the last time I drank Irish coffee. In a pub in Dublin, Ireland. It was much better there.
