125. Van Morrison - ‘Moondance’ + Irish Coffee

Van Morrison - ‘Moondance’ + Irish Coffee

***Thanksgiving Pairing***

Ingredients: 4 ounces freshly brewed coffee, 1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, dollop of whipped cream.

Mixing Instructions: Combine coffee, whiskey and sugar in an Irish coffee mug then float whipped cream on top.

Notes: The sound of Van the Man drips with the good things in life: love, passion, joy, mystery, beauty and truth.  It’s the type of music one listens to while on a Sunday afternoon drive, during a backyard get together, or when the family comes over for the holidays.  The third studio album from the Northern Irish legend is widely recognized as not just one of his best, but one of the best albums of the era.  Written and recorded after moving to rural New York with his wife, many of the songs exhibit a mystical element that blend the natural with the spiritual — “We were born before the wind.”  The result is an album that feels timeless and often nostalgic without being too heavy.  Paired with an Irish Coffee, there are few better ways to soothe the soul after a Thanksgiving day feast with friends and loved ones.
