In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to come up with a delicious twist on a traditional boozy drink using Waterbridge chocolate. Of course, what drink could be a better fit for this experiment than a delicious Irish Coffee!
Who Invented Irish Coffee?
According to theIrish Whiskey Museum, Irish coffee was invented in the 1940’s by Joe Sheridan, the head chef at a new restaurant catering to guests at Foynes airport. Supposedly, an American passenger enjoying the drink asked “Is this Brazilian coffee”, Joe replied “No, that’s Irish coffee” and the rest is history!
