Lennox Pub Irish Coffee

Do you know when and how  Irish coffee has been invented?

Here is the story.

In 1943, a Pan Am flying boat flight to New York turned back to Foynes due to bad weather.

Joe Sheridan, a chef at Foynes Port near Limerick, Ireland was asked to prepare hot food and drinks for the freezing passengers.

Hoping to warm the travellers, Sheridan put some good Irish whiskey into their coffees and topped it with pouring cream.

When he was asked by the passengers if he had used Brazilian coffee, Sheridan replied: “No, it was Irish coffee.”
