Our Irish Coffee With Kahlua & Cremé De Cacao Recipe is a fun twist on the classic Irish cocktail! I adore a good Irish Coffee and combining my love of coffee with baileys, kahlua, and cremé de cacao is taking the delightful experience to a whole new level! It’s a creamy chocolatey coffee flavors mixed together in perfect harmony.
Irish Coffee With Kahlua & Creme De Cacao Recipe
While the most common everyday beverage in Ireland is tea and popular alcoholic beverages include whiskey, beer, and ale. Coffee mixed with whiskey and whipped cream is known throughout the world as “Irish coffee.” In my recent European travels that included a few days in Dublin, Ireland I made sure to stop and enjoy an Irish Coffee! 🙂
The history behind Irish Coffee
Chef and Bartender Joe Sheridan worked at the Foynes Airport, Shannon Ireland. He created the traditional Irish Coffee on a cold night as he was hoping to warm travelers, Sheridan put some good Irish whiskey into their coffees and topped it with pouring cream.
How did it get to the US? In 1951, Stanton Delaplane, a reporter for The San Francisco Chronicle, enjoyed a cup of Sheridan’s Irish Coffee at Foynes Airport. The reporter flew home to the US and spent a long evening at The Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco attempting to work out the proper balance of ingredients. Soon enough, Jack Koeppler, the owner of The Buena Vista, found himself to be the proprietor of the most prosperous saloon in the city practically overnight, thanks to Irish Coffee.
