I served this with my traditional irish desserts. I also used Kahlua instead of the Irish cream and it was a big hit. Perfect for a chilly night! Enjoyed by all, especially the grandparents!

I made this in clear, Irish coffee mugs and skipped the nutmeg. This was too strong, with a dominating taste of whiskey. The coffee almost seemed an afterthought. Reducing the amounts of whiskey and Bailey's by half would really improve this.

This is such a perfect winter after-dinner drink. It works well in hot chocolate, too.

I felt wicked drinking this on a Sunday afternoon but it went great as an after-dinner drink after a large sunday lunch w/ family. If you sprinkle the nutmeg just so over the whip cream, it looks really pretty and it goes down really well!

A favorite winter drink in our house! We enjoy these in a thermos while walking near the water on Naples Island in Long Beach watching the boat parade. Keeps you nice and toasty. We also enjoy these on Christmas morning along with mimosas and Breakfast Casserole (recipe on this site). This is a great drink, but be careful cause they are STRONG!

For some reason I am having a hard time typing . . . just kidding! These are great!

This drink was way too strong. My mom and husband thought the same thing. Next time I will try leaving out the whiskey and just adding Irish cream, which still has alcohol.

One was enough for. No wonder the Irish are so happy. One of these knocked me right out. It was delicious. Yummmmmmmm
