Irish Coffee cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

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.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
