Irish Coffee from The Buena Vista Cafe: San Francisco : Pouring nearly 2,000 Irish Coffees each day, The Buena Vista Cafe reigns supreme as master of the cream-capped glass. From the tulip-shaped goblet to the cane-sugar cubes, each element of this time-honored recipe has been tested to achieve the perfect balance of fresh-brewed coffee, Irish whiskey and lightly whipped cream. If you think you hate coffee, you’ve clearly never had one of these.

(And this is coming from someone who doesn't drink whiskey or eat seafood)
