I just found the recipe for this drink today, so I have yet to try it, but I thought it looked good and it sort of takes traditional Irish coffee to the next level with some Grand Marnier in place of whiskey.  It looks like a lovely after-dinner drink and is a perfect one to make for St. Patrick's Day!  Have a cup of this with some scones or soda bread and may the luck of the Irish be with you.

Leprechaun's Delight

1 fluid ounce brandy-based orange liqueur (Grand Marnier®)

Pour hot coffee into a mug. Stir in Grand Marnier and Irish cream. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, and sprinkle with grated orange rind.
