Irish whiskey, coffee, a little cream and sugar—there's not much to an Irish coffee, but when you're holed up in a bar on a chilly evening, it can seem like the only drink worth having. And when you're not holed up in a bar? Making your own version at home is a walk in the park. The key to success is dark roast coffee, good Irish whiskey and perfectly chilled cream—but we'll let Los Angeles bartender Derek Schreck of Tom Bergin's Public House tell you how it's done. Watch our video and start perfecting your own Irish coffee.
