Irish Coffee
Irish Coffee

This cocktail became a hit in the early 1950s when Stanton Delaplane brought it from Ireland to the United States. He was working at The Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco, and after perfecting the recipe, this quickly became their signature cocktail.

The Buena Vista Cafe is still open today, and they make some of the best Irish Coffees, but be warned, this place is always super full of other people ordering them.

Irish Mule

This is the Irish Whiskey version of a Moscow Mule, sometimes called the Irish Mule. An older similar drink called the Horse’s Neck is also whiskey and ginger beer. The difference between these two is the Irish Mule has lime juice in it, while the Horses Neck has an enormous lemon peel to add citrus flavor.
