History of the origin of the Irish coffee
Now is the time to tell youThe history of the Irish Coffee. In the mid-30s of the 20th century, to fly across the Atlantic, it was necessary to survive the unusual stress - for any passenger this was a whole test. Many flights could last even for 16 hours. Almost the most important trans-transit junction of transatlantic airlines at that time was Shannon Airport, in the town of Phoenix, which is located in County Limerick. For passengers to be more comfortable and comfortable, they opened a cafe in which anyone could pass several hours of tiring. But after the prime minister visited there, thoughts began to open about opening a first class restaurant with a chef and national dishes. The restaurant was opened, and Joseph Sheridan became the head chef in it.
Once in 1942 it was a very cold evening and inThe airport has gathered a large number of people who had to return to Foines because their flight was canceled - the weather was bad. Moreover, the passengers had to not only wait a long time for the next aircraft, but also wear all the warmest things. That evening, at the bar, Dzhozef Sheridan was on duty, he watched this picture for several hours, but then he got the idea that it would be able to cheer people up and brighten up the hours of waiting. But he did not offer pure whiskey to people, but simply started adding it to coffee. One passenger, having tasted the taste, asked: "Is this Brazilian coffee?", Joseph thought a little, and then answered: "No, rather, Irish ..."
In 1945, Farnes airport was closed and the eraSeaplanes ended up. They were replaced by Boeing and liners, and on the wall of the bar still there is a memorial plaque and a legend that is called Irish Coffee. Now every July 19 in Foines celebrate the birthday of Irish coffee. The baristas of the whole world gather around and compete in the preparation of a drink created by Joseph Sheridan.
There is another recipe for making coffeeIn Irish, but it does not have such an alcoholic drink as Irish whiskey, for this variant the popular liqueurs "Baileys" are used. But such a drink is already called Coffee Baileys, which has a very delicate aroma - no lady before him will not stand.
