Copycat Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew

Copycat Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew

Starbucks recently released their new holiday beverage – the Irish Cream Cold Brew. Being a coffee junkie and lover of Irish Cream I obviously had to run out and try it. It is pure magic in a cup. Without the booze of course. However, at about $4.50 a cup, not so magical on the wallet. I’ve created my own Copycat Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew recipe so that you can make your own. And I’ve also included a boozy edition for when you want to be a little extra 😉

Copycat Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cold coffee (I usually just make a cup, refrigerate for a bit and then add some ice)
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • cocoa powder (for dusting)

Directions:

  1. First you’ll need to make your Irish Cream. (I made this ahead of time in a larger quantity and stored in the fridge in a mason jar). Mix together 1 3/4 cups of heavy whipping cream, 2 Tbsp chocolate syrup, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp of almond extract. Stir together.
  2. Next make a cup of coffee, chill and then pour over ice.
  3. Add some of your Irish Cream to your coffee, as much as you want.
  4. In a bowl, add the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Whip or use an immersion blender until the mixture is frothy.
  5. Top your coffee with the cream foam and a dusting of cocoa powder.
  6. Enjoy!
