#NationalIrishCoffeeDay is this week and we couldn’t be more excited to talk about our favorite Irish Coffee recipe. There isn’t much to dislike about this steamy and sweet concoction. It’s the perfect blend to help you relax with a drink and wake up with a jolt! Not to mention, it almost always comes with whipped cream. This Colorful Cocktail recipe is classic. When it comes to Sangria recipes, we like to get a little creative – but the Irish Coffee needn’t be complicated. Simple ingredients make this toasty cocktail shine on a dreary winter’s day. However, if you prefer a little more flavor, there are endless recipes available at your fingertips. Like The Spruce’s creamy caramel recipe or Genius Kitchen’s rich, dark mocha recipe that hides a hint of Creme de Menthe for the most luxurious touch ever. 

Pro tip: Get really creative and add some snazz with a dollop of colorful whipped cream on top instead of the usual white. Our favorite color to make is PINK! It’s an easy way to achieve a striking (and fun!) result.
