Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee cocktail with Irish whiskey and cream

A bartender at Ireland’s Shannon Airport created this drink in the 40s to appeal to American tourists, and boy, it stuck.

The cream should be whipped until soft peaks form, and gently slid atop the drink. If you want to add some extra flavor, mix in a big pinch of sugar, some vanilla extract, or a splash of whiskey while you’re whipping.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build everything but the whipping cream in the order given in a mug or heatproof coffee glass. Whip the cream until soft peaks form, and gently float it on top of the drink.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
