Where does Irish Coffee come from?
This is probably not behind anyone: Irish Coffee originates from Ireland – exactly as the name suggests.
To be quite specific, the drink originates from Shannon Airport in Ireland, wherein in the 30s and 40s, there was a lot of traffic of people having to fly to and from America. The myth of Irish Coffee is that a bartender at an airport bar served this drink to some American passengers who were tired and cold after a long, excellent flight.
One of the American guests was particularly fond of the drink – Stanton Delaplane. He tried to recreate the drink at home in America for ten years, but he could not make it taste exactly like the one he got at the Irish airport.
He decided to go back to Ireland to recreate the recipe. Stanton found out that the icing on the cake was Irish whiskey. After returning home to America, he had great success with his recipe for Irish Coffee.
