Tamara Novacoviç on how to make that favorful and delicious adult coffee.
By Tamara Novacoviç

I generally drink 2 cups of coffee a day and kind of don’t function well without it. I’m always up for upgrading a cup of coffee with whipped cream, alcohol additions, honey, cinnamon and similar. Irish coffee is right up my alley: flavorful, warming, strong, delicious.
It generally consists of hot coffee, (brown) sugar, whiskey and thick cream.
