Grounds and Hounds Coffee is bringing all the St Patrick’s Day luck with their newest howliday collection, and what better way to celebrate than with an Irish Coffee?

Though a similarly alcoholic coffee drink was found in Vienna coffeehouses since the mid-19th century, according to Wikipedia the exact origins of this cocktail are unknown. It’s possible that it was created by Joe Sheridan, the head chef at the Foynes Airbase during World War II, and it may have come to the US via San Francisco Chronicle travel writer Stanton Delaplane in the early 1950s.

Grounds and Hounds has helped rescue over 2,000 dogs since their founding thanks to their Rescue Roast initiative. For more information, see their website for more details. You can also save 15 percent off your order with the promo code LUCKYPUP15.

Their founder Jordan Karcher shares a secret recipe to make the day a little sweeter.

Irish Coffee is a good treat for the humans this St Patrick’s Day.

Given that the COVID pandemic is still ongoing and partying is very much not safe, this is an individual-sized recipe for Irish Coffee, so if multiple people in your household wish to partake in the festivities, adjust portion sizes appropriately.

The ingredients are as follows: Four ounces of coffee (Grounds and Hounds Good Boy blend is preferred), one and a half ounces of Irish whiskey (Tullamore Dew preferred), half a tablespoon of maple syrup, two ounces of whipped cream, one ounce of heavy cream (optional), and a bit of nutmeg for garnish (also optional).

First, brew a cup of coffee – the French press method is recommended as the best way to fully experience all the flavors within, and while the coffee is brewing, find a favorite mug and add in the Irish whiskey. The maple syrup (and heavy cream, if used), go in next.

Once those ingredients are all set, pour in the coffee, stopping about an inch from the rim, and then topping with whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg to make it look pretty.

We got to taste-test the Good Boy coffee blend recently, and it’s interesting. Irish Coffee would be a good way to enjoy it.

The Good Boy blend is a dark roast with elements of brown sugar, buttercream, baker’s chocolate and molasses, which creates a flavor that demands your attention while drinking – something like Taylor Swift‘s album folklore, it’s not quite what was expected but impressive nevertheless.

It can be purchased in ground- or whole-bean form for $14.99 in a 12-ounce bag.
