recipe: dark chocolate irish coffee

Irish coffee isn’t something we drink every day, so it’s meant to be a bit indulgent. We’ve gone a step further and replaced the standard sugar with an even better substitute: dark chocolate syrup. It helps take some of the edge off. If you didn’t think you liked Irish coffee before, this version might change your mind.

So when you need some help powering through a long day of St. Patrick’s Day revelry, try this Dark Chocolate Irish Coffee for a caffeinated, chocolaty, boozy treat.
