St. Patrick's Day party drinks

Everyone knows ya cant have a true St. Patrick's Day party without some traditional Irish drinks. Get plenty of Guinness, but add these 2 fine recipes as well! And remember to Drink Responsibly!!!!!

Irish Coffee
2 oz (60 ml) of Irish Whiskey
1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar
Freshly made strong black coffee
Whipped Cream

Gently warm whiskey and sugar in a saute pan, stirring just until smooth. Pour into coffee glass. Add the coffee slowly,filling the glass to within half an inch of the top. Pour the cream in gently. Do not stir.

(grated chocolate can be added to the top if desired)

and, for a very "Posh" feel to the event:
Black Velvet
Makes 1 Quart

1/2 qt Guinness
1/2 qt Champagne
Combine Guinness and champagne in a tall chilled glass.
Stir gently and serve.

Recipe cards are available in our Wee Irish Gallery. You might also consider the fine Guinness card (pictured above), which is nice enough to frame!
