The invention of the Irish coffee is reclaimed by the small Irish town of Foynes: in its coffee shops the irish coffees were served in order to heat the passenger after long trips. The Irish coffee is a hot coffee, sugared, laced with whisky and a layer of cream.
- Put the sugar into the glass and melt it with a little part of hot coffee.
- Add the whiskey and the remaining coffee.
- Lastly add a teaspoon of cream.
