MO: Hi Howard. Great seeing you again.
HR: Miss you guys. So tell everyone the story like you told us.
MO: Well Howard, 70 years ago Chef Joe Sheridan invented Irish coffee here in Foynes for some cold, miserable passengers coming off a transatlantic flying boat. This is how he did it. He heated a glass, just to keep the drink warm. Next, some good brewed coffee half ways up the glass. Then you get one spoon of brown sugar. And then the secret ingredient: good Powers Irish whiskey, and be generous with your measure. And a good stir so that the sugar dissolves. Finally, some nicely whipped cream over the back of a spoon to stop it from sinking. And then, you sip the hot liquid through the cold cream. Slinte.
HR: That looks amazing! And when you sip this flavorful hot coffee through the cool cream, get ready for a dose of pure Irish comfort. The recipe for "Traditional Irish Coffee" is online now, along with our recipe for "Leprechaun Bites" so you can relax with two warm-ya-up favorites. Margaret, thank you and happy St. Paddy's Day. Do you remember what Mr. Food said when he took his first sip?
MO: I do indeed, Howard ... "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"
