Irish Cofee Recipe

Buena Vista inspired classic

Roseville, CA- Growing up back east, the holiday fervor surrounding St Patrick’s Day bears similarities to Cinco de Mayo celebrations in California. It’s a fun day to celebrate and appreciate culture with food, drink, friends and family.

For 2020, St Patrick’s Day celebrations may be much smaller in scale, but no less fun.

Inspired by Buena Vista in San Francisco and their famously delicious Irish Coffee, we decided to add an eerily similar variation to a few annual festivities. After testing a few methods, we settled on the delicious combination below. Tastes great with or without alcohol!

The inspiration!
