Iced Irish Coffee Drink Recipe

Cold Press Irish CoffeeIrish coffee is sweet and creamy and spiked with whiskey. It’s a darn good drink to serve at brunch when you’re looking for a bit more kick in your coffee.Irish CoffeeUsually Irish coffee is served hot, but I’m a big fan of cold brew coffee so I made an iced Irish coffee recipe. The drink is a simple mix of cold brew coffee, Irish whisky, simple syrup and slightly thickened whipping cream.

Iced Irish Coffee Recipe
4 ounces cold brew coffee, chilled
1 ounce Irish whiskey (such as Jameson)
1 ounce simple syrup
Ice cubes
Slightly thickened whipping cream (see tip)
Cocoa Powder

Add cold brew coffee, Irish whiskey and simple syrup to a mixing glass. Fill glass with ice and stir to chill the drink. Strain into a glass; discard ice. Top with slightly thickened whipping cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

Makes 1 drink
Tips:
Make your own cold brew coffee or buy some at your local coffee shop.
-Simple syrup is 1 part granulated sugar dissolved in 1 part water. For extra flavor, try using demerara sugar.
-To get the cream to layer evenly over the coffee, beat cream with a whisk until thickened but still pourable. (You want thickened cream, not stiff whipped cream.) Layer the cream on top of the coffee drink by slowly pouring the thickened cream over the back of a spoon. You’ll want to start with 3 to 4 tablespoons liquid whipping cream per drink.Cold Brew Irish Coffee

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Frappe Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Frappe DrinkThis week my kitchen has been in a swirl of orange. It’s been pumpkin this, pumpkin that, and more pumpkin. Let’s keep the theme going with a homemade pumpkin spice coffee frappe!

This blended coffee drink is the perfect expression of this time of year. It starts with my favorite drink of summer, cold press coffee, and collides with the king of fall flavor: pumpkin spice. I’m in love.

To make my pumpkin spice coffee drink, I start with strong brewed cold press coffee and blend in real pumpkin, light cream, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and lots of ice. Overly sweet drinks aren’t my thing, so I add just a spoonful of real maple syrup. One of the best things about making your own blended coffee drinks, besides saving money, is the ease of customizing. Add more or less sweetener or light cream to suit your tastes. Just don’t skimp on the whipped cream garnish, it’s not optional : )

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Frappe
3/4 cup cold press coffee, chilled
2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons half and half (light cream)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 cup ice
Garnishes: whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice

In a blender container combine cold press coffee, pumpkin puree, half and half, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. Cover and blend to combine. Add ice; cover and blend until smooth and slushy. Pour coffee frappe into glasses. Top with whipped cream and additional pumpkin pie spice.

Makes 2 small blended coffee drinks (about 2 1/4 cups total)

Tip: Brew your own cold press coffee or buy some at your local coffee shop.
