Classic Irish Coffee
Irish coffee was invented in 1943 by Joe Sheridan, a chef and barman at an airbase in Limerick, Ireland. It was a cold winter night, and a transatlantic flight had been grounded due to bad weather. Sheridan wanted to warm up the chilled passengers, so he added Irish whiskey and cream to hot coffee.

A few years later, a travel writer introduced this delicious beverage to the United States, and the rest is history. But don’t worry, you don’t need to be a professional to whip up a great version of this unique drink.
