Joe Sheridan had the right idea when he first combined a robust Irish whiskey with rich black coffee to create the Irish Coffee Cocktail. This hot drink has long been a favorite in Irish pubs with a popularity that could be said to rival a great stout (as tough as that may be).
Despite some common shortcuts that have been taken in the past, a great Irish Coffee is not as simple as adding a shot of whiskey to a cup of coffee. No, this is a well-planned, carefully constructed coffee drink that should be mixed with the care of any modern latte or cappuccino. That said, it is actually quite easy!
When created with care, this classic is one of the best drinks you will taste. It is a steaming cup of sweet goodness that you will crave on a chilly evening and want to share with everyone you know.
