Not everyone likes their whiskey straight. But few can resist it when mixed with chocolate, coffee and cream. So when looking for a way to share my favorite spirit with coworkers and neighbors this holiday season, Irish cream seemed the way to go.
It's good in coffee, over ice cream, or with a couple of ice cubes. My favorite is a shot of it topped with a layer of cream on top. The Irish cream goes in the glass first, then turn a spoon scoop side down over the top of the glass and pour the cream over it, so it settles as a nice layer on top.
