Sláinte! Cheers to Classic Irish Coffee

The Alexandria Saint Patrick’s Day Parade kicked off the month-long celebrations of all things green and gold. Luckily, we have the classic Irish Coffee recipe to help you celebrate. Whether you’re looking for a festive cocktail, or just looking to warm up on a cold night, this drink is sure to keep Irish (and all) eyes smiling.

Fun fact: Did you know Irish Coffee was actually invented in an Ireland airport in 1943? We feel like that’s proof that this can be your good luck charm anytime, anywhere. Sláinte!
