The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess
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.
Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
