Irish Coffee or Caife Gaelach is a very tempting cocktail that stirs three heavenly liquids: Coffee, Irish whiskey and Sugar. And believe it or not, this easy to make drink, or as it may seem, is very easy to get wrong and can quite be a sweet disaster or a whiskey flavored coffee if you are not paying attention. I do not want to sound intimidating but the probability of getting this delicate drink wrong for doing nothing really drastic is quite high. Also some people like to believe that the secret of a perfect cup of Irish coffee lie in the glasses, where you are forced to use the correct amount of ingredient.
Anyhow, out of all the tempting coffees in the world, Irish coffee undoubtedly claims its place amongst the top 10. In fact to some, it may even top the list.
