Green Beer pass the Irish Cheer

May those who love us, love us. And for those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts. And if he cannot turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we may know them by their limping.
- Irish Toast -

May your St. Patrick's Day be happy and fun.

Irish Coffee

Ingredients:
1 cup (8-ounces) heavy cream
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1-2 tsp. Irish cream
6 cups strong, hot black coffee
4-6 tablespoons brown sugar, or 1 for each serving
3/4 cup Irish whiskey, or 1 shot per mug

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar until soft peaks form. Set aside. (Hint: To get the best results chill beaters and a glass or metal bowl in the freezer for an hour before making the whipped cream.)
Combine remaining sugar, coffee and whiskey. Gently fold the Irish cream into the whipped cream, set aside. Pour coffee mixture into mugs, and top with whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6.
