I would imagine any place could serve you decent Irish Coffee as it is pretty basic with the ingredients. In honor of the upcoming St. Patricks Day I will share my recipe for my "Kelly's Coffee" take 2 saucers, put sugar in one and Amaretto in the other. Dip your upside down cup in the Amaretto first and then follow in the sugar to create a sugar Amaretto ring. Add coffee 3/4 of the way and add 1 shot of Tia Maria or any other coffee liqueur and 1/2 shot of Amaretto. Stir and add whipped cream. Enjoy.

Ummm.. Amaretto and Tia Maria in coffee with sugar and whipped cream is the recipe for Spanish Coffee.

Irish coffee calls for Irish whiskey.

I've used Baileys to make french toast. Frangelico is great in coffee as well.

Spanish Coffee uses rum in place of amaretto. Other Spanish restaurants I have been too use brandy as well. Both too rough for my palate.

Bet the bartenders at the Buena Vista Cafe in SF would be twisting in the wind. Used to go there and have an Irish coffee before sailing. It was always Irish whiskey (Bushmill's being my choice), two sugar cubes and a collar of whipped cream floating on top. Good luck on getting any other flavored coffee there, even though one bartender would take pity on me and make it an Amaretto coffee since I truly don't like whiskey. Bailey's was never used since it is a cream whiskey. The trick is to get the cream to float. Oh, and don't ask for decaf. Those bartenders have Irish rolling eyes down to a fine art.

Thank for all the great input. I wish I had the ingredients to make all versions. I would invite each of you over. Lorraine.

Went to Ireland in August and definetly no Amaretto and Baileys although they are delicious. The recipe is some brown sugar at the bottome of the cup, Paddy's Irish Whiskey or Jameson's and whipped cream. They are all delicious

Where might you have had your Irish coffee in Ireland? I remember enjoying the Hot Irish Whiskey on my trip to Ireland. Lorraine

Probably the best Irish coffee in Ireland is at the Shannon Airport, at least that was the case many moons ago.

Had my first Irish coffee ever at Buena Vista in 1977. For Irish coffee lovers this video should be a treat:

One of my favorite memories of Ireland was looking for real Irish coffee. They use clotted cream, and once they run out...you don't get an Irish coffee. One month in Ireland and I only managed to get one true cup of Irish coffee. But it was worth it. It's just not the same when the cream comes out of a can.
