National Irish Coffee Day

Today is National Irish Coffee day, and if you've ever visited San Francisco, then you've probably stopped by the infamous Buena Vista - home of America's first Irish Coffee. It all started back in 1952 when then owner Jack Koeppler challenged travel writer Stanton Delaplane to help re-create the highly acclaimed coffee drink from the Shannon Airport in Ireland. After much experimentation and a short jaunt to Ireland, the pair eventually stumbled upon success and American experienced its first Irish Coffee.

So since today is National Irish Coffee Day, I'm hoping I'll be able to swing by and have one in celebration. However, I know that most of you won't be able to join me, so why not whip up an Irish Coffee at home? To view the recipe,

I prefer my Irish Coffee with brown sugar instead of white sugar cubes. It has a richer flavor, and that's how they make it in most of the Irish pube in Baltimore (and we have a TON). BaltimoreGal

I like Irish Breakfast Tea....I guess that's a different drink altogether. Cheers to the Irish!
