After our delicious dinner, we had an excellent treat. Every time Cooper and I order an Irish Coffee in a restaurant, he tells me a story about how his friend Patrick's dad is such an Irish Coffee expert and purist, and how he makes the best Irish Coffees ever. With no Bailey's, of course.
Finally, I got to experience the magic. Or as close to the magic as I'll probably get: an Irish Coffee made by Patrick, in the style of his dad. OK, three Irish Coffees made by Patrick. But still all in the style of his dad.
The coffee was good, the whiskey was Jameson's (of course) and the whipped cream was more creamy than whipped. Perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better dessert.
