Everyone's Irish today! Some Slate pics...
Which makes me think of Irish Coffee. It turns out there's a small controversy over where it originated. Maybe not in Ireland as this Wikipedia page states lore would have it, but in America at the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco.
Wherever it was invented, it's yummy. I remember my folks making them at home for guests at dinner parties in the late 70's and early 80's, but they seem to have gone out of fashion a little. When was the last time you saw an Irish coffee on a restaurant menu? And for that matter, why is there a dearth of Dom Pedro's on American menus? :)
