In an age of artisanal ice and ludicrous infusions, it’s nice to have a well-made classic. And no one does the classic Irish Coffee like the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco. They perfected the recipe back in 1952, and they haven’t changed it since. We stopped by to see how one is made.



1. Fill your glass with hot water, then dump it out.




2. Add two sugar cubes.




3. Pour coffee until the glass is 3/4 full.




4. Stir to dissolve.




5. Add a full jigger of Irish Whiskey.




6. Top with lightly whipped whipping cream by pouring gently over a spoon.




7. Enjoy.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
