From the Normans, Oliver Cromwell & Michael Collins; Ireland has a rich history worth celebrating this St. Patrick’s Day.Â Not only has Ireland brought us the likes of William Butler Yeats, Thomas Moore, Catherine Hayes, Arthur Guinness, Frank McCourt & of course, Bono– they have also brought us comforting & delicious food.
So this St. Patty’s day let’s raise our Irish coffee to a civilization & country to whom we owe so much!Â Now for the St. Patrick’s Hot Whiskey:
- boiling water
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon Irish whiskey
- lemon slice
- 2 whole cloves
Heat a stemmed whiskey glass with hot water. Throw out the hot water & add boiling water.Â Throw out boiling water (watching where you thow it).Â
Pour in fresh, boiling water to a little more than half full & dissolve sugar.
Add whiskey, slice of lemon & cloves.Â Now you have a true, and warm, Irish hot whiskey to keep you company this evening!Â Enjoy and make another!
