Irish coffee is a hot cocktail made with strong coffee, Irish whiskey, brown sugar and topped with cold cream. This classic drink was created in Limerick in the 1940s by Joe Sheridan, a chef who offered this warming beverage to winter travellers at Foynes Port. Since then, the drink has made its way over the Atlantic, into our favourite pubs and satisfied bellies.
