Irish Coffee - Just Like at The Buena Vista

A couple of years ago, The Bestie turned 40 and we celebrated with a weekend trip to San Francisco. One of my favorite spots during our visit was The Buena Vista.  If you ever visit San Francisco, this is a MUST try!  They are famous for their Irish Coffee - and for very good reason, they are delicious! Our trip was in late November/early December so it was the perfect drink for a cold day.

These are very easy to make at home - The Buena Vista even shares the recipe on their site!  You'll want to head there to read their Irish Coffee Story.

The Buena Vista serves their Irish Coffee in a signature, heat-proof glass.  Any 6-8 ounce mug will work - Irish Coffee glasses are typically footed and some have a small handle.  We added ours to our Crate & Barrel registry almost 19 years ago, received them from a couple who was married 3 months before us, and still have them today!  The mugs and the friendship!  :)

Today, The Bestie once again celebrates her birthday!  Cheers to you my friend!  Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!
