Saint Patrick’s Day would not be complete at my house without a little Irish whiskey. And by a little, I mean a lot. In preparation for this year’s holiday, I decided to combine three of my favorite guilty pleasures: ice cream, coffee, and alcohol. That’s right, a boozy affogato! Whether you prefer Jameson or Bushmills (why not use them both) I promise this will become a new St. Patty’s Day tradition. Oh, and a word of advice . . . best if not eaten right before bed. I learned that one the hard way. Sláinte!


  • 2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream
  • double shot of espresso
