History of the famous "Irish Coffee" From the Buena Vista Cafe, San
Francisco, California

Irish Coffee was conceived by bartender Joe Sheridan at Shannon
Airport, Ireland. Patrons would approach the small bar shivering and
ask for a heart warmer. The blend of Irish Whiskey, piping hot coffee
topped with cool cream was just the trick. In 1952 Stanton Delaplane,
an international travel writer, discovered this treat and brought it
home to bartender Jack Koeppler at the Buena Vista. Here they
attempted to recreate the magnificent drink without success. The cool
cream float kept sinking. Koeppler visited the Shannon Airport to
learn from the drink's creator, and the rest is history".

Tip: For an alcohol-free version, try it without the Irish Whiskey,
and add a little Vanilla Extract and a sprinkle of Cinnamon!

1 Jigger Irish Whiskey
Strong coffee
Heavy cream
Brown sugar

For Alcohol-Free Irish Coffee:
Omit the Irish Whiskey
Add 1/8 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Add a sprinkle of ground cinnamon over the cream
Cinnamon stick to garnish (optional)

Fill glass with hot water to pre-heat it empty. Pour piping hot coffee
into warmed glass until it is about 3/4 full. Add 1 tablespoon brown
sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Blend in Irish Whiskey. Top
with a collar of slightly whipped heavy cream by pouring gently over a
spoon. Enjoy while piping hot.
