The most popular of warm drinks using a suitable liquor with piping hot coffee which is topped with cream is the Irish Coffee invented in 1942 by Joe Sheridan the chef at Foynes Flying Boat Station in County Limerick, Ireland, (which is now Shannon Airport) during a storm to keep weary passengers happy after their plains were grounded.

Heat coffee style glass, then add a little coffee to sugar to dissolve.
Add liqueur of choice and more coffee and stir.
Aerate cream and float on top.
Decorate/Garnish with ground coffee.

In recent times we have popularised the "Galliano Hot Shot" and the "Sambuca Hot Shots", which are a small shooter version of the originals. these can be taken in one swallow at any time on any occasion.
