What do I need to make the Bailey’s Iced Coffee with Ice Cream?

  • Pistachio Ice Cream: I used pistachio flavored iced cream in the drink for the flavor and color. However, French vanilla is also a great choice in this coffee dessert recipe.
  • Sweet Cream: There is just a splash of sweet cream. If you do not have it on hand, half and half or whole milk work well too. Just add a little extra sugar if you have a sweet tooth!
  • Bailey’s Irish cream Liqueur: Bailey’s is the gold standard of Irish cream liqueur and that is what I use in this recipe. However, there are several other brands at different price points available that are very good too! Ask at your local liquor store to see what they recommend.
  • Coffee: I love Starbucks cold brew, so that is what I used, but any cold brew coffee will work. So use your favorite blend!
  • Sugar: Add a little extra sweetness with a teaspoon of sugar, if desired.
  • Whipped Cream: Add some delicious whipped cream on top to make this tasty iced coffee drink extra decadent!
  • Green Sprinkles: Add a pop of color with some green sprinkles!

How do I make the Bailey’s Iced Coffee?

This takes just a few minutes to make! However, if you want to prevent the ice cream scoops from melting right away, it is best to scoop them out and place them back in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours before creating the dessert coffee drink. 

Step 1: Start off with ice cream

Add 2 to 3 small scoops of ice cream to your favorite glass or mug.

Step 2: Add Cream and Liqueur

Add a splash of sweet cream (if desired). Then, drizzle in Irish cream Liqueur.

Step 3: Add the Coffee 

Next, add the cold brew coffee to fill the cup. If you like it extra sweet, add in a little sugar.

Ingredients

  • For each 12 ounce cup:
  • 2-3 scoops of Pistachio Ice Cream
  • Splash Sweet Cream Creamer
  • 2 ounces 1 1/3 shot Irish Cream Liqueur (like Bailey’s)
  • 8 ounces Cold Coffee
  • Sugar to taste for sweeter version (optional)
  • Whipped Cream for garnish
  • Green Sprinkles for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Place ice cream scoops in cup.
  • Drizzle in creamer and liqueur.
  • Fill cup with cold coffee.
  • Add sugar if desired.
  • Top with whipped cream and green sprinkles.

Notes

1. Pro Tip: To keep ice cream scoops from melting right away, make them beforehand and place in the freezer several hours     before serving.
2. Some pistachio ice cream is green in color and some is white,  either one will work for this recipe. French vanilla or plain vanilla are great alternatives!
3. You can add more or less alcohol as desired. This can also be made as a non-alcoholic drink, you’ll probably want to add a little more creamer in this case though.
