Perfect for National Coffee Day! No surprise, the Irish Coffee was invented in Ireland, but perhaps owes its popularity to the Buena Vista in San Francisco. In fact I was recently in Ireland, and at a cocktail lounge there they listed the "Buena Vista Irish Coffee" on their menu.
4 oz Coffee
2 tsp sugar
1 oz Irish Whiskey
Pour coffee into warmed Irish Coffee glass.
