Whiskey in coffee may have been around forever, but true Irish Coffee is said to have been invented in County Limerick in the 1940s. It’s one of the easiest bar drinks to make at home, and is a warm and comforting treat on a cold and windy night. SAM

1 teaspoon sugar or to taste
3/4 cup hot strong coffee
1 ounce Irish whiskey
2 tablespoons whipped cream or topping

In a glass or mug, dissolve the sugar in the coffee. Add the whiskey and stir thoroughly. Top with whipped cream.
Makes 1 serving.
