Baby, it's cold outside!

     We woke up today to the most beautiful, COOL weather here in South Florida!  Babe and I had to slip on our heavy robes as we sat on the patio and drank our coffee this morning - it's absolutely delightful and a very welcome change from the heat and humidity of the past 10 months.  The weather reminded us of our  trip to San Francisco, which even though it was July, the tempatures there were in the 50s and we loved every minute of it - especially when we warmed our souls with the best Irish Coffee at the place that started it all, the Buena Vista!

     Make no doubt about it...Babe and I will be drinking these tonight, by the fire in our chiminea, right next to the palm tree.

The Original Irish Coffee
Recipe provided by The Buena Vista

Fill glass with very hot water to pre-heat, then empty.

Pour hot coffee into hot glass until it is about three-quarters full.Drop in two cocktail sugar cubes.

Stir until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved.

Add full jigger of Irish Whiskey for proper taste and body. (We use Bushmills)

Top with a collar of lightly whipped whipping cream by pouring gently over a spoon.
Enjoy it while piping hot.
