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.

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
