Shakers One and Two would like to wish all of our friends a safe and happy drinky day.  And while neither of us are really much for the whole green beer thing, we somehow found a way to put a little Irish in our evening.


The Irish Coffee Martini


3 ozs strong brewed coffee, cooled

2 ozs whiskey

1 oz vodka

1/2 oz simple syrup (or use raw sugar/brown sugar in the cocktail shaker if you prefer)

Heavy cream whipped with about a teaspoon of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons Baileys


Apologies for the poor photo quality, but Shaker One was too anxious to taste this to fool around with fancy photo taking.

I love Irish Coffee.  This is all that is right about a perfect Irish Coffee but chilled.  The vodka takes a bit of the whiskey bite out without losing the flavor.  The Baileys give the heavy cream topping an amazing depth.  I over whipped the cream here, which doesn’t make for a pretty drink.  But it tastes amazing.  You can either sip it as is and the coffee part grabs some of the cream with each sip, or stir it up for a drink that Starbucks can only dream of serving.

Thankfully St. Patrick’s Day comes only once a year, or these would become a dangerous habit.

Shaker One gives this 4 3/4 olives.

Now go find your leprechaun!
