Ah, the Irish Coffee - a classic drink that requires careful attention to make to perfection. This delightful beverage has been around since 1947, when Joe Sheridan created it at Shannon Airport in Ireland. As air travel between Ireland and the United States resumed after World War II, Joe wanted to offer a warm Irish drink to travelers. Initially, he considered tea and whiskey, but after noticing that Americans consumed large amounts of coffee, he decided to experiment with this ingredient.
