  2. Pour in the hot coffee and stir until blended.
  3. Stir in whiskey.
  4. Garnish with whipped cream, then drizzle creme de menthe on top. Top it all off with the cocoa powder.
  5. Sip and enjoy!


Serving Suggestions:

If you’re hosting a party, don’t forget that coffee goes best with dessert!

While this coffee certainly holds it own, it definitely tastes sweeter with chocolate. The bakers out there may want to pair it with a unique St. Patrick’s Day dessert like leprechaun brownie cups, mint truffle cheesecake brownies, or Irish cream cupcakes. For those of you who prefer to drink more than bake, keep your guests in the party mood with Delysia Spirits collection chocolate truffles – nine dark chocolate bites infused with rum, scotch, or bourbon.
