Traditionally, Irish Coffee is made with coffee, sugar, whiskey, and whipped cream, and is a lovely way to end an evening. Luxury Experience's recipes go beyond the basics to create Irish Coffee recipes that will change the way that you drink your coffee. 

Luxury Experience's Irish Coffee is made with coffee, and Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey, and replaces the sugar with Celtic Crossing Liqueur. Topped with whipped cream flavored with Fee Brothers Mint Bitters

Luxury Experience's Saint Patrick's Day Culinary Recipes 

Luxury Experience's Potato Leek Pie
Luxury Experience's Irish Coffee Ice Cream 

Potatoes are an important part of Irish culinary heritage, and Luxury Experience's Potato Leek Pie is a savory sensation made with potatoes, Irish Dubliner cheese, leeks kissed with Celtic Crossing Liqueur, mushrooms cooked in Boru Vodka, and blended in a rich cream sauce baked in a flaky pastry crust recipe handed down to me by my mother, Victoria V. Argen.

Luxury Experience's Potato Leek Pie
Serves 8 

Pastry Ingredients:  

2.75

Cups

Flour

0.75

Cup

Crisco shortening

1

Teaspoon

Salt

5

Tablespoons

Cold Water

Method:  Preheat oven at 375° F (191° C). In a food processor, add flour, shortening, and salt. Process until mixture is crumbly. Add cold water by the tablespoon and process until dough starts to hold together. Do not over process. Roll half of the dough out between sheets of parchment paper to create a pastry round. Reserve rest of dough for other purpose. Carefully transfer dough to a pie plate. Flute edges of the dough. 

Filling Ingredients:  

12

Ounces

Potatoes, thinly sliced (approximately 3 medium size)

1

Cup

Leeks, thinly sliced, white and light green parts only

1

Tablespoon

Butter

1

Tablespoon

Celtic Crossing Liqueur

1

Cup

Mushrooms, sliced

4

Ounces

Irish Dubliner Cheese, shredded

3

Tablespoons

Flat Leaf Parsley, fresh, chopped

2

Ounces

Boru Vodka

1

Cup

Light Cream

1

Tablespoon

Butter

2

Tablespoons

Flour

 

 

Salt and Pepper, freshly ground, to taste

Filling Method: Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water until tender. Drain. Sweat leeks in butter in a covered saucepan until leeks are wilted and tender, do not brown. Add the Celtic Crossing Liqueur and sauté until liquid is absorbed. Boil the mushrooms in 1-ounce Boru Vodka. Strain mushrooms and reserve liquid. 

Sauce Method: Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in the flour to create a roux and stir until smooth. Do not brown. Slowly add the light cream stirring to create a smooth sauce. When mixture begins to thicken slightly add 1-ounce Boru Vodka, stir to combine and remove from heat. 

Layer the cooked potatoes on the pastry and then add half of the leeks and mushrooms, sprinkle with 1.5-tablespoons parsley, and half of the Irish Dubliner cheese. Top with remaining potatoes, leeks, mushrooms, parsley, and cheese. Carefully pour the sauce over the potato mixture and bake the pie for 35 - 40 minutes until filling is set and pastry is golden brown. Remove from oven, let rest for 10 minutes, garnish with fresh parsley, cut and serve warm. Accompany with sautéed carrots or a green salad. 

For our Saint Patrick's Day dessert, we created Luxury Experience's Irish Coffee Ice Cream that incorporates the four ingredients of a traditional Irish Coffee recipe: Irish whiskey, coffee, sugar, and cream. 

We created 4 ice creams that we layered to create the finished dessert. For the whiskey layer, we made an ice cream with Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey, for the "sugar" in a traditional Irish coffee recipe, we made an ice cream with Celtic Crossing Liqueur, and we used Boru Vodka from Ireland in both the coffee ice cream and the vanilla ice cream.
