    FLKeysJen's Note:

    The Buena Vista on Fisherman's Wharf serves as many as 2,000 of these famous Irish Coffees each day. It's a great way to warm up on a foggy day by the bay; however, after a few of these, you may be feeling a little foggy yourself. The major difference from other Irish Coffee recipes here is the use of sugar cubes.

      Love this Irish Coffee! It's the exact recipe and technique from the BV. I use Bushmill's but the BV uses Tullamore Dew in their Irish Coffee. Thanks, FLKeysJen!
