Irish Coffee is a  hot, caffeinated drink  that was invented by Limerick by chef Joseph Sheridan in 1942 to welcome Americans visiting Ireland. The travelers arrived in the west of Ireland on a cold winter night, so Sheridan added whisky to their coffee to warm them up, telling the Americans they were being served Irish coffee.


A San Francisco Chronicle travel writer, Stanton Delaplane, brought the recipe back to the U.S. after drinking Irish coffee at Shannon Airport. It was first served at the Buena Vista Café in San Francisco on November 10, 1952 and had been a staple at the Buena Vista Cafe ever since.
