While coffee is in the name, that’s not all that an Irish Coffee is! In fact, Irish Coffee is a warm cocktail made with Irish whiskey, sugar, hot coffee and cream. The classic recipe has been adapted to fit different tastes, with some recipes now including Bailey’s liqueur and other flavors.
Irish Coffee was first created by Chef Joe Sheridan in the 1940s at an airport in Ireland. He wanted to warm passengers up on their flight from England to the USA. The recipe has since become famous all over the world, with coffee enthusiasts and cocktail lovers alike enjoying the warm, creamy treat.
Want to try your hand at making an Irish Coffee for the holiday? Here’s a delicious recipe to get you started:
Fill a mug with your hot coffee. Then stir in brown sugar, dissolving completely. Then blend in your Irish whiskey and top with your cream of choice.
