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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
