Irish Coffee Recipe. Irish Coffee was originally created by an Irish chef/barman as a warm and welcoming drink for the first tourists to arrive in Ireland via transatlantic passenger airplanes.
The Shannon International Airport (then called the Shannon Airport Foynes), in Shannon, Ireland, has served Irish coffee as the official welcoming beverage since 1942.
This recipe is true to Chef Joe Sheridan’s original recipe.
