So its high time I start a blog thats been swirling in my head for a while…Domestic Geek. A blog that serves to prove that you can be a tech savvy hardworking woman (or man) who also loves to knit yoga bags and cook curry. In recent years the word “domestic” has taken on a bad connotation and I want to take back that word as something chic and practical (I wont go into a long rant here and now, Im sure you get the gist). Here you’ll find everything from recipes, to patterns, to tips and links to all around cool domestic geekery. So with a Irish Tea in hand (trust me this aint your grandma’s tea…or maybe it is if shes a lush) I crisen this blog!
Oh and how rude of me, of course I must leave you with a quick recipe on how to make Irish Tea. I have to give my brother credit for introducing me to this idea of substituting tea for coffee in Irish Coffee, its perfect if you arent exactly a coffee drinker or if you dont feel like brewing up a whole pot of coffee.
- 1 cup Water
- 1 Irish tea bag (or English Breakfast tea)
- 1-2 shots of Whiskey (something with a smokey mild flavor…I like Cutty Sark or Jameson)
- 1 shot of Creme Liquor (my preference is Cask N Cream)
Bring water to a boil on the stove and allow to cool slightly before adding the tea (common we’ve all made tea before right!?). Allow the tea to steep for a few minutes. Add a shot (or two!) of whiskey and a shot of creme liquor. mix and serve! for added pizzaz top with a bit of vanilla powder, cinnamon or nutmeg. To put an exotic twist on this substitute a mild black chai tea instead! Bigelows Vanilla Chai is amazing fyi.
Serve and enjoy! This drink is a great breakfast treat if you want to start your Sunday morning off right (not recommended for weekdays) or a nice way to close out a day. Enjoy!
