Today is Irish Coffee Day!

Today we warm up with Irish coffee, a drink made with Irish whiskey, hot coffee, heavy or whipped cream, and brown sugar. The drink was created in Ireland during World War II and made its way to America in the 1950s. Usually drank in a stemmed glass, it is now popular around the world.

Foynes Airport in Foynes, Ireland, was one of the biggest airports during World War II. It was a place where flying boats traveling across the Atlantic Ocean docked, and was frequented by passengers from the United States such as Hollywood stars and political figures. In 1943, Brendan O'Regan opened a restaurant in its terminal building and hired Joe Sheridan as the chef. Sheridan invented Irish coffee that year.
