At our favorite Irish pub here in town, they serve an Irish coffee that is the stuff that warms the soul on a cold winter day. Dark, rich coffee steaming hot with big splashes of whiskey and Irish cream. Topped with whipped cream and a little dusting of cinnamon, it’s basically dessert meets cocktail meets some kind of heaven. Is Ireland heaven after all? It may just be, friends, it may just be. Today I’m serving up a frothy, thick milkshake version of the Irish coffee classic, and I’m not exaggerating when I say this is easily one of the most delicious things I’ve ever made. I’d go so far as to put in my top five favorite recipes I’ve ever created and shared with you. It is so so good. Make these for your friends this St. Patrick’s Day weekend! They will love you more than they already do. Sláinte!

Hi there! Curious how much milkshake this recipe yields? Just wondering how many people to share with, though I'm sure I could likely finish it all myself!
