Irish coffee is a hot coffee beverage that includes liqueur and whipped cream. The cream can be whipped although some recipes do state that it should not be whipped.

The coffee is drunk through the cream in much the same way as a cappuccino.

The beverage was said to have been invented by an Irish chef known as Joe Sheridan while there are also GermanAustrian, and Danish varieties.

There is also a tendency to name some other varieties of coffee beverages after the region in which it originated such as adding rum to make Jamaican coffee or Scotch whiskey to makingHighland Coffee.
