This was a dessert/beverage experiment my boyfriend and I came up with - so good! Each person can mix to suit himself/herself! Half-and-half and sugar can be added to taste if desired.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Brew 12 cups of coffee. While the coffee is brewing, fill each cup with a scoop of ice cream. Be sure to use large cups (the oversized types you get at coffee houses are best). Top each scoop of ice cream with just enough Irish cream so that the ice cream looks lightly coated.

  • When the coffee is brewed, pour it so that each cup is filled up about halfway. It is then up to each individual to add more Irish cream, half-and-half, or sugar to suit his/her taste.

This. Is. AWESOME. My husband and I absolutely adored this drink. I used my own homemade irish cream liqueur and I think that really took it over the top. Incredible nightcap drink. Very decadent. NOTE: Math is not my strong suit but if you cut this in half and use one medium sized scoop of ice cream instead of one full pint of ice cream you'll get two perfect servings. I don't know if something got lost in translation when the recipe was added to this site but the way I did it worked for us. Read More

Well I think if there is a 'next time' I will do what another reviewer had suggested by adding whipped cream instead of ice cream. The mixture of hot coffee and ice cream made the drink lukewarm. I believe my own saliva was a bit cooler than the drink itself. Other than that it did have a nice flavor although I was quite disappointed in wasting a good bottle of Bailey's the first time around.

I'm not a coffee drinker so this wasn't my favorite - I had to give it 5 stars though because my husband is and he loved it. Will make it for him again. Thank you Read More

This works well with just about any liqueur. YUMMY with Kahlùa or Frangelico. Bailey's is NOT one of my favorites. To this day anything that lists 'Irish Cream' has to be skipped... Read More

Yummy!!!I made this the other night-just for myself(hubby doesn't drink coffee!!) and it was sooo good.Put one small scoop of ice cream in my mug and poured a small amount of cream rum on top and then poured coffee in.Can't wait to try Kahlua or Baileys(need to make a run to the liquor store to stock up first though)!Really great idea Kim!

Very interesting but not as good as you would think. We used Kahlua which doesn't seem to taste very good when heated. The ice cream made the drink turn lukewarm; it was neither a hot drink nor a cold one. I don't know. Maybe with your own adjustments you'll love it. It has potential. Read More

Very appropriate for this fall cool weather we've been having here. My mom and I served this as an after-dinner drink at a recent Sunday dinner with family. Very chic but fun and tasty. Thanks Kim! Read More
