This is a replica of the coffee served at the Shannon Airport in Ireland. It was re-created by the owner of the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco.

Yum! We absolutely loved this authentic Irish coffee. It's a strong cup of coffee slightly sweetened with sugar and just a bit of Irish whiskey. The best part is the frothed cream on top. As you drink the hot coffee through the cream, it magically mixes together. It will warm you up on a cold winter day. This is definitely an adult-only coffee. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Authentic Irish Coffee

Step-by-Step

  1. Use fresh, cold water to make coffee - 2 rounded tablespoons per 6 oz. cup (makes a very strong coffee).
  2. Fill a 6-8 oz mug with hot water (to warm).
  3. In a bowl, whip or froth cream lightly, so it is still pourable.
  4. Empty water from mug. Add hot coffee and sugar; stir to dissolve.
  5. Add whiskey; stir.
  6. Hold a spoon upside down over mug and slowly pour the cream over the spoon, allowing it to float onto the top of the coffee.
  7. Do not stir - drink through the cream.
