Chef's Notes

This is one of my favorite drinks. I was first introduced to this Irish drink, by my friend Leah Nesbitt, way back when we were in culinary school together. I still think of her every time I drink one.

    I thought this recipe had coffee in it. This is a common drink in San Francisco and I've always had it with coffee, The recipe clearly says there is none, I'm shocked, is this a mistake?

    Good question Brenda, since this particular cocktail doesn't contain coffee — though there are many similar versions that do — I have changed the name (to be honest, I am not sure why the word "coffee" was in the title in the first place — maybe I had had too many when I entered the recipe...ha ha!). Cheers!
