Another classic coffee-based mixed drink, the Irish coffee is a staple of St. Patrick’s Day menus all over. However, there have been similar coffee-liquor drinks throughout Europe that pre-date the Irish coffee by at least 100 years. Disregarding that, Irish Coffee is a simple, sweet, and delicious mixed drink even when it isn’t St. Patty’s Day.


  • 6 oz brewed Irish Elegance coffee
