Irish Coffee with Whiskey Whipped Cream

Before we get to breakfast drinking, I would like to wish my wonderful husband, Chris, a very happy birthday!  Since he shares his birthday with a holiday, I don’t want him to feel left out of all the leprechauns and shamrocks.  You are my favorite person and I am so lucky to be married to such a great man!  Happy Birthday!

I don’t know about you, but I could use a drink after the week I’ve had!  Instead of just chugging that bottle of whiskey, I think I’ll take the more socially acceptable route and have an Irish Coffee…and I’ll use that there whiskey to make a special whipped cream.  Sounds great to me!
