Nutty Irishman

We’re getting closer to St. Patrick’s Day! Obviously this makes me think of food and beverages that have the word “Irish” in them somewhere. Which reminded me of how much I adore Nutty Irishmen. If you look at my recipe list you’ll notice that I made a similar recipe once, the Nutty Irishmen Semifreddo. That might be a bit too complicated if you’re just looking to relax this weekend, so here is the original beverage version for your enjoyment.

It’s simple, really. First, you brew coffee. Brew it however you like! Get a mug, add 1 shot (1 to 1.5 oz) each of Frangelico and Baileys Irish Cream. Add coffee. Stir. Top with whipped cream (optional) enjoy! This can also be served over ice if that’s your preference.

I always like to have this with whipped cream. To make mine, use 8oz of heavy whipping cream, 1 tsp sugar, and 1 tsp Frangelico and whip it until it formed soft peaks. Then I sprinkle it with cocoa powder if I think it needs flair. This doesn’t come out very sweet, but that’s how I like it.

Go on, you know you want to try it!
