National Irish Coffee Day

Does this really need an explanation?  Thanks Jason D. for sharing.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Top o’ the morning to you! January 25 is National Irish Coffee Day.

Though there are many variations, the International Bartender Association gives the official recipe as two parts Irish whiskey, four parts hot coffee, one and a half parts fresh cream and one teaspoon brown sugar.

Irish actor Alex Levin summed up his love for the beverage eloquently: “Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat.” And only Irish coffee can be disguised as regular coffee for your 8 a.m. meeting. Sláinte!
