Irish Coffee

Irish coffee is a strong coffee mixed with irish whiskey, sugar and topped with a layer of rich cream. Irish coffee was invented in the winter of 1942 when some weary travelers visited a small airport in Ireland. There they met chef Joe Sheridan who was preparing and serving hot coffee to his guest at the restaurant. Only it was not any coffee this coffee had been spiked with whiskey and topped with whip cream. When the guest inquired if it were Brazilian coffee he corrected them and said it was Irish coffee.

A food author was able to enjoy the Irish coffee and brought the recipe back to the U.S. In 1952 while visiting a cafe he shared the recipe with the owners of another restaurant. They were able to remake the "Irish Coffee" and served it to their patrons.
