Food Recipes As the legend goes, on one cold winter's night an American Flying Boat (also known as a seaplane) landed into the village of Foynes, in the Limerick County of Ireland. As the frozen-to-the-bones passengers and the crew stumbled into a local restaurant, the chef welcomed them with piping hot coffee adding a shot of whisky to each cup. Thus the fabled Irish coffee was born.
Nowadays, Irish coffee is usually included in a menu's dessert section. The following is one method that makes an ideal drink for when the weather turns a little chilly and you need a quick pick-me-up.
