IRISH COFFEE

Irish coffee is Irish true, born on Irish soil and created with Irish ingredients. It’s enjoyed across the world. Irish coffee was created in 1942 in the Foynes Airport in Ireland, and Irish Whiskey made its way to the states in 1952.

Donna even shares tips to help you make the spiked drinks from the comfort of your home.
