The bards - irish coffee - The Bards - Bar & Grill - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In 1942 (or perhaps 1943), a small band of unfortunate travelers huddled together on a seaplane dock by the River Shannon in Foynes, Ireland. They'd been flying for 10 hours in bad weather in an abortive attempt to reach Canada. Joe Sheridan, the terminal's barman, observed their condition and took action. Whiskey. Sugar. Hot coffee. Cream. And just like that, the winds calmed their furious blowing, and the sun beamed down on the steaming chalice. Thus was born Irish Coffee, a mighty tonic for all who travel the ways of the earth and even those who sit on their asses all day in the dark corners of taverns. Here's how to make this warm, generous drink to bring comfort in the middle of a winter afternoon.
