Did you know

During Word War II, after a tiring 18-hour flight in bad weather, some American travellers arrived in Ireland by seaplane. The perceptive restaurant manager on duty concluded that these foreign guests might appreciate something a little stronger than coffee or tea. At his suggestion, the head chef put together a concoction now known as Irish Coffee.
