Hello friends! Now that Valentine's Day has passed, Cathy and I can focus our energy on our Irish roots and embrace her St. Patrick's Day recipes and DIYs! Huzzah!

Today, we're sharing an alcoholic drink recipe:

Did you know that we both have Irish heritage? It is one of the holidays we really enjoyed celebrating with our families back in Boston, but we try to embrace it as best we can here in Arizona now.

One of the ways we enjoy celebrating is through enjoying some cocktails with Bailey's in it. Lately, I have not been feeling much like having a beer or cocktail, so I have had a few Irish Mochas instead!

They are very easy to make: 
*Yields 1
* 1 cup of hot/warm espresso (we use Cap Mundo Nespresso Yrgacheffe)
* 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1 tablespoon of white sugar (or substitute if you prefer)
* 1 tablespoon of Bailey's Irish Creme 
* 1/2 cup of whipped cream and a handful of sprinkles (optional)

1. Brew your espresso as you normally would, and then pour it into 1 coffee cup.
2. Stir in unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar and stir well.
3. Add in Bailey's Irish Creme and stir.
4. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles! Enjoy!

And we're giving away one 10 count pack of Yrgacheffe!

These single-cup coffees were bomb!

 I prefer stronger coffee, so I really loved the Cap Mundo Nespresso Yrgacheffe. They fit right into the Nespresso machine and filled the room with a lovely, bold coffee aroma with just a hint of jasmine. This mocha was grown on the Southern Ethiopian highlands and smells incredibly rich. I really liked the quality of these cups, and I would definitely buy them and have them again.

Are you Irish? Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?


  1. I love St Patrick's Day! We are a bit, one fourth, Irish and love to celebrate in big party fashion. Our family has always decorated the house and partied in parades and celebrations around the world. I was in Korea for the last 2 St Paddy's Days and it is the one day in Seoul where the foreigners outnumber the Koreans. It is the Irish expats that can't believe how big we Americans do the celebration. But it is always tons of fun.

    1. That is so awesome that your family decorates the house and parties for St. Patty's Day!! That is really cool you were in Korea for 2 whole years! Was it for work? I have always wanted to travel abroad.

  2. This drink brings back some fond memories of a few ladies and I gathering in the very cold weather to watch our husbands play football...we were armed with thermoses of Irish mocha coffee. Love this!

    1. Awww that sounds like so much fun! I am glad I could bring that memory to you with my drink recipe :)
