Irish Coffee

On a trip to San Francisco, a friend told  us that we needed to make a stop at Buena Vista Cafe for their famous Irish Coffee, read about the history of it here

We went, and we were not disappointed by what the handsome, serious, silver mustached bartender whipped us up. Clearly this was a crowd favorite, as just about everyone else there was having the same thing.


We watched the process carefully so we could make it ourselves.  This drink has become a staple at our brunches and is always a crowd-pleaser! The perfect addition to your Christmas morning!

What you need:

Coffee (I like a dark roast)

Irish Whiskey

Sugar Cubes

Whipping Cream

Irish Coffee

Add 2 sugar cubes, an ounce of whiskey and about 3 ounces of coffee to your glass and stir. Whip cream for about 2.5 minutes, it should just be just starting to firm up, but should still be quite runny. Then pour whipping cream over a spoon to layer it on top of the coffee.

That’s it! It’s delicious and has a nice kick!
