Irish Coffee
Legend has it that the first Irish Coffee was created by Joe Sheridan in 1942, at Ireland's Shannon Airport (southwest of Dublin).

In November 1952, Jack Koeppler (then-owner of the Buena Vista in San Francisco, California), challenged international travel writer Stanton Delaplane to recreate the Irish Coffee served at Shannon Airport... and together they did! And the rest is history. Today, Irish Coffee is popular the world over.
