Irish Coffee

By Jairo Hillon
The history of Irish coffee takes us back to the 40s, of the last century. Back in 1942. The most popular story relates that a flight full of American passengers arrived at Foynes Air Base, located in the west of Ireland, after an intense fight of several hours against strong storms. The flight landed without problems in the base area and the passengers disembarked grateful to be alive, but cold due to the freezing night air. It was Joe Sheridan, the chef of the restaurant at the air terminal who understood the cold of the passengers, and to help them decided to prepare a drink that warmed their bodies and encouraged their spirit after the experience they had lived.


1 cup (0.24 l) of coffee
2 tablespoons of brown sugar

Whipped cream
200 thousand milk cream
Cinnamon at your desire
