Irish coffee seems to have been invented at Ireland's Shannon Airport by a barman called Sheridan. He decided to warm up some passengers waiting for their delayed flight by adding whiskey and sugar to their coffee. When they asked, "What kind of coffee is this? Is it Brazilian?" he replied, "No, it's Irish coffee!".
