Iced Irish Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes

No, it isn’t St. Patrick’s Day, but it is National Irish Coffee Day. That delightful fact sent me straight to Pinterest to search for an Irish Coffee recipe. I found everything from the traditional version to the Boozy Irish Coffee Milkshake. Talk about a tough decision to make! It took some thought, but I eventually decided on this Iced Irish Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes recipe. When I drink coffee it’s iced, so this was a natural choice. I also loved the simplicity of the recipe. Four ingredients plus four steps equal two cold, sweet, boozy, and caffeinated cocktails. I like the sound of that!

If you like iced coffee, this is the cocktail for you. Traditional Irish coffee flavor mixed with coffee ice cubes for great sipping flavor.

The Ingredients

The list of ingredients for this recipe was short (and sweet!). I had the brown sugar on hand, but I had to buy the rest. I stopped at the liquor store for a bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey. The grocery store was my next stop, where I found light cream and cold brew coffee in the dairy section.

The Process

This recipe was nice and simple, and had 3 main parts:

  • 2 minutes to make the ice
  • 2 minutes to sweeten the coffee
  • 3 minutes to assemble the Iced Irish Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes
  • 7 minutes total (not including time to chill & freeze)

The cold brew coffee I bought was kept in the dairy section’s refrigerator, so I immediately poured 12 ounces into an ice cube tray. It filled about half of the cubes in the tray, and I let it freeze overnight.

The rest of the coffee needed to be sweetened with brown sugar. I left it on the counter to warm up, but I didn’t include the time on that. I just went about my business and came back to it later in the day. Then I added the sugar, shook the sealed container to mix, and put it into the refrigerator.

When it was time to assemble the Iced Irish Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes, I opted for tall highball glasses. I considered Irish coffee mugs, but I was afraid there wouldn’t be enough room for the coffee ice cubes. The highball glasses were perfect!

I added 3-4 ice cubes, the Irish whiskey, light cream, and chilled coffee. A quick stir, a couple of straws, and the cocktails were complete. Cheers to that!

This Iced Irish Coffee with Coffee Ice Cubes was stunningly good! The coffee, Irish whiskey, cream, and brown sugar were perfectly balanced and I could taste them all. Trust me on this, my husband and I both had 2 to make absolutely sure ;) This recipe has only a few ingredients, but you will need an ice cube tray to make it. It's worth the few dollars for the coffee ice cubes that don't dilute the cocktail as you sip. The hardest part was waiting for the coffee ice cubes to freeze, and the rest is very simple. This was a Pinterest success that will become a favorite!
