Irish Coffee

Renée G.


Pouring nearly 2,000 Irish Coffees each day, The Buena Vista Cafe in Los Angeles, reigns supreme as master of the cream-capped glass. Each element of this time-honored recipe has been tested to achieve the perfect balance of fresh-brewed coffee, Irish whiskey and whipped and lightly sweetened cream. If you think you hate coffee, you’ve clearly never had one of these.
