This Irish Coffee Martini is a lovely adaptation of one of my favorite cocktails of all time. I lived in the Bay Area for several decades and was lucky enough to have enjoyed the original, hot version of Irish Coffee many times at The Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco - where the original owner, Jack Koeppler, made this cocktail famous!
There's a fascinating history behind Irish Coffee at The Buena Vista's website - yes, that lovely pub is still there at Hyde and Beach on Fisherman's Wharf and I encourage you to drop in and enjoy one of their famous Irish Coffees if you're ever in San Francisco!
1 Oz. Irish Whiskey
1 Tsp. Sugar
