I just realized looking at this photo now that I only put in 3/4 cups Irish whiskey, which is probably why it was so thick, but I assure you it was still super tasty, and we had Jameson on the side for adding to our coffees with the irish cream. I made homemade chocolate syrup by just warming 8T or so of whipping cream and and chocolate chips to make a viscous ganache. Just eyeball it. I also did not use instant coffee, but just a couple ounces of my remaining french press pot of coffee. Finally, I added a smidge of fresh ground nutmeg, just for a little something extra. Maybe next time I will try to make it with the 1 and 3/4 cup whiskey!

I hope everybody had a happy St. Patrick's Day. I did my third Shamrock Run, took care of my honey, and ended it on a high note with a corned beef dinner party with close friends. It was an exhausting weekend, but it ended happy.
