“Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.”  By Alex Levine.

As we start the weekend we should always be worried about nutrition and covering the major food groups. Not sure these are listed on any other healthy menus. Depending on the weather an iced Irish coffee sounds even better! Like my sister said, she does not like whiskey, she does not like coffee, but put them together and she loves  them!  Also might want to add a little Bailey’s or your favorite Irish cream!
