Freezing temperatures require two things; coffee and alcohol. Think of how natural it is to combine those two things together…

On a different note, I have nothing but envy for those of you that live in a warm climate. This 100-below-zero-thing gots to go! It did warm up a bit, but still. I’m over it. I’m ready to go back to sippin’ on a Strawberry Pom Mojito. (SO GOOD!) 

…but until then…

I made this coffee 32.8 times in that 3-day-blizzard we had some two weeks ago. I was warm and drunk the entire time. Just kidding. Sort of… 😉

I also sang my heart out, and danced around to Story of My Life by One Direction

Okay. Truth be told, yes, I danced around to, aaaand sang my heart out to The Right Stuff by NKOTB.

Hey man, there’s no way I’m gonna go through life without introducing my kids to the love of my life, Joey McIntyre. ♥ >>—> ♥

There’s also that other love of my life – in case you hadn’t noticed, my love for coffee is quite deep. However, a splash of whiskey, from time to time, is also very, very welcome.

Before you get all nervous on me and start screaming about what the deal is with this authentic thing and Irish Coffee, let me tell ya. The deal is big. It’s huge! (not so much) The deal is in the cream. It’s about how you pour the cream so it floats on top. That’s all.

I first had a “real” Irish Coffee in this small, hole in the wall, Irish pub in Chicago. What caught my attention was the cream on top. I was like, saaaaay whaaaaat?! That’s not how they do it at “Applegeez”! How did you do that? That’s when the nice bartender man showed me how to make the cream float on top by holding the spoon upside down.

He also said that you should only use Irish Whiskey. With a side of very black coffee. And a glass mug with a handle.

The End.
