Buena Vista Irish Coffee.

I drove into San Francisco with several colleagues for dinner tonight.   I had fresh Dungeness crab, and after dinner we ordered a round of legendary Irish Coffees at The Buena Vista.  


The restaurant’s website has instructions on how to make one, if you want to try to make one yourself:

Buena Vista Irish Coffee

Fill glass with very hot water to pre-heat, then empty.

Pour hot coffee into hot glass until it is about three-quarters full. Drop in two cocktail sugar cubes.

Stir until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved.

Add full jigger of Irish Whiskey for proper taste and body.

Top with a collar of
lightly whipped whipping cream by pouring gently over a spoon.

Enjoy it while piping hot.

  1. I mixed my Coffee first yesterday morning listening to a Norfolk Va. Hip Hop Radio Station while ‘Curiosity’ began it’s first Mobile Movements… It went Forward 3 Meters & turned 90*… I submitted a Program I used when I was a Submariner in the Navy; it worked… Have a Blessed Day Sheila356
