Do you like Gaelic or Irish coffees? I actually prefer Scottish whisky to Irish whiskey (notice the different spellings). So we made Gaelic or Scottish coffees the other day.
Gaelic coffees in Irish coffee glasses.
Brew some strong ground black coffee (we buy ours from Aldi) and place a teaspoon of brown sugar in a handle glass (so you don't burn your fingers), add a measure of whisky to the glass. We used Teachers because we had it in. Add the coffee to the glass and stir. Then add some whipped cream. We used a aerosol of spray cream. Enjoy. There are supposed to be thirteen gales hitting Ireland over the coming weeks.
Did you watch the BBC 4: A Year In A English Garden last night? It's on BBC Player if you missed it. Not that we can get it in Ireland. I loved the walled kitchen garden and there is always something to do. Even when its raining, just for a change. I have a North facing (Northsider) garden and understand the joys and failures of gardening next to the sea and sometimes you get all the seasons in a day.
