Happy St. Patricks Day!

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Recipe for Traditional Irish Coffee
1/4 cup chilled whipping cream
3 teaspoons sugar
1 1/3 cups hot strong coffee
6 tablespoons (3 ounces) Irish whiskey
Preparation:
Place whipping cream and 2 teaspoons sugar in medium bowl. Whisk until cream holds firm peaks. Refrigerate cream up to 30 minutes.
Warm 2 Irish-coffee glasses (small glass mugs with handles) or heatproof stemmed glasses by running very hot water into them. Dry quickly. Place 1/2 teaspoon sugar in each warm glass. Pour in hot coffee and stir to dissolve sugar. Add 3 tablespoons Irish whiskey to each. Spoon chilled cream over coffee in each glass and serve.
We're having Irish Hand Meat Pies for dinner ~ Happy St. Patrick's Day

Coming by to invite you to join my giveaway. Thanks for the coffee recipe. I'll have to try that sometime. I've never made it myself.
