Spiked Iced Coffee with Bailey’s Irish Cream is a refreshing coffee cocktail you won’t soon forget. Make it with cold brew coffee concentrate and homemade Irish cream for a delectable treat.
I’m a coffee person.
In the mornings, I like hot coffee, but in the afternoon, I like to go for something a bit cooler.
Whenever I go to a coffee shop, I am usually that freak that orders an iced coffee whether it’s January or July.
Buying coffee out can definitely get expensive, so I’ve come to love cold brewed coffee that I can enjoy at home, sans judgement from the baristas.
Cold brewed coffee is just what it sounds like — coffee that’s brewed at room temperature for 15 to 24 hours.
Because the coffee concentrate is so strong, you must dilute it with milk or water.
And because it’s cold, it makes an excellent iced coffee because you don’t have to wait for the hot coffee to cool down before pouring over (and probably melting) your ice cubes.
It makes a ton, so it’s really nice if you’re making coffee for a crowd, or desire a few coffee cocktails like this Coffee + Tequila Milkshake or mocktails like this Vanilla Bean Cold Brew Coffee Soda.
Earlier this week, I went to Trader Joe’s and I was so happy to discover that they sell a store-brand version.
I was so inspired, I decided to spike my beloved iced coffee with a little Bailey’s for this week’s cocktail. I want to drink this forever.
Did you know you can also make your own Bailey’s irish cream liqueur? This is one of my favorite gifts at the holidays. It is rich enough to drink on its own, but you can also mix it into cocktails. It’s amazing in a coffee drink, too!
Happy weekend! // susannah
- 1 tall glass, filled with ice
- 2 ounces irish cream
- 2 ounces milk (substitute half-and-half or heavy cream for a richer taste)
- 2 ounces cold brew coffee concentrate
- Pour Bailey's and milk into ice-filled glass. Top with coffee concentrate. If needed, stir gently with an iced tea spoon or straw. Serve immediately.
If you need to modify the amount, use equal parts of all three ingredients. You can also substitute brewed coffee for the concentrate, but be sure it's room temperature before pouring over ice.
