“Irish coffee is the original Vodka Red Bull”

Irish coffee (hot coffee with Irish whiskey) has been a popular drink since the 1950s. Vodka Red Bull is another caffeine and alcohol combination that became popular in the 2000s, about fifty years after Irish coffee.

Wikipedia: Irish coffee
Irish coffee (Irish: caife Gaelach) is a cocktail consisting of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and sugar, stirred, and topped with cream. The coffee is drunk through the cream.

Wikipedia: Vodka Red Bull
The Vodka Red Bull cocktail, also known as a Heart Attack Special or a One Armed Scissor, is a caffeinated alcoholic beverage consisting of energy drink Red Bull and varying amounts of vodka. Red Bull has been used as a general mixer in alcoholic beverages in Europe since the 1980s, though not specifically with vodka. However, the drink became especially popular in North America when it began being served at San Francisco’s Legendary Butter Bar, which is attributed to being its home in North America, and one of the many places you will still receive Red Bull’s “Perfect Serve” of 2oz’s of Vodka with a full 8.4Oz can of Red Bull.
