Rumor has it that Irish coffee was first served in the bars on San Francisco’s wharves. Whether this is true or not, the practice of a little nip in the coffee has become a warming habit, no matter what the time of day. Unlike the flood of liqueurs with their johnny-come-lately coffee tricks, Irish coffee is the most straightforward of all coffee concoctions and is a perfect way to end a meal.
