The Irish Coffee


The Buena Vista is about a three-block walk from our hotel in the Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s claim to fame is its Irish Coffee, a potent blend of strong coffee, sugar, cream and Tullamore Dew Irish whisky. The coffee and booze are made special for the bar. The cream is 36% heavy cream frothed in a milkshake mixer below the bar.

Our bartender from last evening, Marty, said he makes about 2,000 on an average night. His technique is spotlighted below:

For the record, I had two.
