|A few days ago we wrote about Burns Night, the holiday celebrated on January 25th to honor Scotland’s great poet, Robert Burns.
But to give equal time to the Irish, January 25th is also National Irish Coffee Day (here, not in Ireland).
This popular drink isn’t for waist-watchers, but we’re happy to celebrate the “holiday” on almost any day.
- Take a minute to check out the history of Irish Coffee and our group of Irish Coffee recipes. It’s so easy to make that you can invite the gang over after work today for a mug or two.
- You can also rent a movie starring your favorite Irish actor (the many choices include Daniel Day-Lewis, Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson).
- And if you have time, make this Irish Coffee Cheesecake. If you can’t make it today, plan to try it soon!
You don’t need special glasses for
Irish coffee, but the handled glasses are
traditional. These are available at Amazon.com.
