A Coffee for the Irish!

It is almost St. Patrick's Day! One thing I like to make for this holiday is an Irish Coffee.

Whenever I am in San Francisco, I always try to go to Buena Vista Cafe. They make the best Irish Coffee. Each glass is made fresh on the spot. It is fun to watch the bartender create each one. The trick is to take the time and hand whip the cream to the perfect consistency with a spoon.

A Buena Vista Irish Coffee:

Pour hot coffee into a glass about 3/4 full.

Add two sugar cubes. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Add one shot of Irish whiskey

Finish with a layer of fresh whipping cream (lightly whipped). Pour the cream over a spoon to have it layer properly onto the coffee.
