During the cold winter of 1943, the Irish Coffee cocktail was created by Joe Sheridan, chef at Foynes Port near Limerick. Limerick was one of Europe’s biggest airports for transatlantic flights and passengers often had to stay at night because of the weather conditions. Sheridan’s restaurant catered to the rich & famous passengers on the flights.

 

One evening, a flight to New-York city had to return to the airport. Joe Sheridan was asked to prepare hot food and drinks for the passengers. He deciding to add some good Irish whisky to the coffee he was serving. And this world famous drink was born.

 

After the war in 1952, this cocktail was introduced to the United States by a travel journalist Stanton Delaplane and recreated by his friend Jack Koeppler, the bartender of Buena Vista Hotel in San Francisco. Today Irish Coffee is enjoyed across the world, in many versions, particularly on St. Patricks Day.

This is the recipe offered by Joe Sheridan, to make a true Irish Coffee:

Cream - Rich as an Irish Brogue 
Coffee - Strong as a Friendly Hand 
Sugar - Sweet as the tongue of a Rogue 
Whiskey - Smooth as the Wit of the Land
