With St. Patrick's Day now upon us, there's no better time like the present to mix two of the world's favorite liquids: coffee and alcohol. Just remember not to skimp out on the coffee! Now, we're in no way condoning irresponsible drinking, but here's a little something something to get your lucky day started on a caffeinated note.
1. Irish Coffee was invented in 1942, when a plane of American passengers was delayed because of bad weather conditions while leaving for Newfoundland. To warm up the passengers, airport restaurant chef Joe Sheridan decided to put some Irish Whiskey to use in their coffees.
5. National Irish coffee day is January 25th and of course, can also be enjoyed en masse on March 17th.
