Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Irish Coffee Day

The Irish coffee as we know it now, according to historians, was invented by bartender Joe Sheridan who worked in Ireland at the Flying Boat Terminal at Foynes in County Limerick. He created the hot drink as an answer to the Italian Espresso and Cappuccino.

Sheridan moved to San Francisco in 1951 and brought his recipe to the new bar he was working at, The Buena Vista, in San Francisco.

How to make an Irish Coffee

In a medium bowl add 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 cup of really cold heavy cream. With a whisk, gently stir to dissolve the sugar then whisk quickly until you reach stiff peaks.

In a mug add 10 oz. of your favorite coffee. Now add a shot (or two) of your favorite Irish whiskey, it doesn't matter which one, as long as it has an 'e' in it, it'll be Irish. Finish with a dollop of your homemade whipped cream on top and few drops of Crème de Menthe or a couple of shavings of quality chocolate.
