Best Irish Coffee Glasses
Coffee, the nectar of the gods. At least, for many people around the world it is. But what better way is there to spruce coffee up at a Sunday brunch–or any day, really–than with a dash of Irish liquor? Regardless of how 'Irish' it really is, Irish coffee is a drink found in restaurants and bars around the world. It's typically served in a clear, glass mug with a squat stem and sturdy round base. They're designed to show off the layering of the coffee and cream that's easily managed and perfect for drinking–or carrying to and fro–straight from the bar. So, regardless of where or how you take your Irish coffee, it serves you right to drink it from its intended vessel. Not sure where to start your search? We put together a list of what we found to be some of the best Irish coffee classes available that you can check out here.

This set of six, 16-ounce glasses from JoyJolt offers the perfect set for hosting and serving after-dinner Irish coffees–or coffee of any variety.
