In 1952, after the war, Irish Coffee was introduced to the United States by travel writer Stanton Delaplane, which became a huge success and became an airport specialty, he brought it to the attention of Jack Koeppler, a bartender at the Buena Vista Hotel in San Francisco and convinced him to recreate it. When Koeppler attempted to make this coffee, the cream sank, so he went to the source, Chef Joe Sheridan in Limerick, Ireland, to learn how to make it correctly.

Make this simple cocktail whenever you feel the need for something that will warm you to your toes or if you crave something that will soothe you after a long week of hard work.
