"You just brew the best biggest mug of coffee you can, sugar to taste, stir, then add a shot of the Bush, and slop whipped cream on top. Easy as falling off a wagon. The stimulant and the depressant then play tug-of-war with your brain." - Spider Robinson

Chef's Note

A God's Blessing is what the crew at Callahan's call an Irish coffee. Try a glass, and know how blessed you are.

If you want to be fancy, you can heat the glass beforehand (fill with hot water, let heat absorb, drain, and dry). Wet the rim, and dip it in a teaspoon of sugar to coat. I've also added cinnamon as a finishing touch.


Making God's Blessing

You will need:

  • Granulated sugar (1 teaspoon, or as desired)
  • 1 ounce good Irish whiskey (Black Bush or Bushmills)
  • 5 ounces fresh, high-quality black coffee
  • Whipped cream


  1. Pour coffee into a mug. Add sugar to taste.
  2. Stir in whiskey, and top with whipped cream.
