Sipping on an Irish coffee is a fun way to celebrate the Emerald Isle. There is no better day of the year to do so. Its perfect balance of bitter and sweet flavors goes down delightfully smooth! To make your drink even more festive, try adding shamrock sprinkles instead of the chocolate ones! You could also add a few drops of green food dye to your whipped cream for a whimsical topping. Pair your coffee with some potato pancakes, soda bread, or scones for an extra nibble that will bring you the luck of the Irish all day long.

Cheers to my Irish friends!
