  • Irish Car Bomb cinnamon rolls

    I had a cinnamon roll this morning at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, then I walked into a historic cafe called the Buena Vista. It's right at the end of the cable car line in the city.

    I ordered myself their specialty. Irish Coffee. You could go on youtube and watch their bartender create twenty of these great drinks right before yours eyes.

    For years I've heard the locals say that Irish Coffee originated at the Buena Vista and that it's really an American invention. But after checking with the bar's web site, I see that in 1952, they began serving this drink in an attempt to duplicate a similar Irish Coffee that was being served at the Shannon Airport in Ireland.

    Cinnamon rolls and Irish Coffee. Yes, that's the Breakfast of Champions.

      Irish "Car Bomb" rolls? I hope the buns have better taste than their name.

        A very tasteful name. What's next? A 9/11 burger? A Manchester Arena meringue? I wonder how well this delicacy would go down in the coffee shops of Omagh?

        This is from 1956:

          I always thought an Irish coffee was a cup of tea.

          I'll get me coat.

            Try Cointreau instead of whiskey. Delish!

              Like Welsh rabbit, a Birmingham screwdriver or Bombay duck?

                That would be a Cap o'Cino (alternatively, an o'Spresso)

                  I really miss Bombay Duck. Loved the stuff.

                    The tough part about making a good Irish Coffee is getting the whipped cream to stay afloat and not quickly sink into the drink.

                      That's right, Joe. So many places get it wrong. It should look like a well-poured Guinness.

                      Edit: Should the cream be whipped?

                        On Post 4 of this thread, the newspaper clipping said that whipped cream is used, so I just went with that. Maybe the web site of the Buena Vista will inform us of their recipe.

                        When I tasted the drink at the cafe, it seemed like some sort of whipped cream was at the top.

                        UPDATE: I just checked their web site. The Buena Vista uses "heavy cream, lightly whipped".
