Irish Coffee Cup for Irish Coffees & Irish Hot Toddies

An Irish coffee cup is typically a clear glass cup sitting on a pedestal with a handle on the cup. The clear glass allows the drinker to watch as the hot liquid inside swirls with the whiskey and melts the real cream used in the production of the drink.  The cups usually come in 6 ounce and 8.5 ounce sizes.
