Boozy Iced Coffee : Cold Brew & Irish Coffee With Slane’s Irish Whiskey

Iced coffee fans who’d like to try something new can whip up these two iced coffee recipes made with cold brew coffee and a hit of Slane’s Irish Whiskey.

Thanks to Slane’s Irish Whiskey for the recipes.

We really liked them as is, but we took the recipes one step further: by making them into floats with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (coffee ice cream works, too).

Can you use coffee other than cold brew? Yes. Cold brewing produces coffee with much lower acidity, greater smoothness and sweetness, and little or no bitterness. It’s very fashionable now, and fans prefer the different flavor profile. However, feel free to use your favorite coffee, iced.
Here’s how to make cold brew coffee, and the history of cold brewing.

Can you leave out the syrup/sugar? Yes. You can use the sweetener of your choice.
Ingredients Per Drink

  • 3 ounces Slane Irish Whiskey
  • 1 ounce maple syrup, honey or agave
  • 8 ounces cold brew coffee
  • Ice
  • Garnish: 3 coffee beans (or chocolate covered coffee beans!)
  • Optional: scoop of ice cream

    If you’re making a float, use a glass that will accommodate the scoop of ice cream.

    1. ADD ice to a shaker; then add the whiskey, maple/honey/agave and cold brew coffee, Shake or stir well to dissolve the syrup.

    2. STRAIN into a glass over fresh ice.

    Most of us have only had hot Irish Coffee. Here’s a delightful alternative. It uses demarera sugar syrup instead of regular simple syrup.

    Why? Demerara syrup uses demerara sugar in place of regular granulated sugar. Demerara is a less processed, raw cane sugar that has delicious caramel/toffee flavor.

    Those flavors in a simple syrup add deeper flavor notes to the drink. Here’s how to make simple syrup: It couldn’t be easier.
    Ingredients Per Drink

  • 2 ounces Slane’s Irish Whiskey
  • 4 ounces cold brew coffee
  • 2 ounces half & half
  • 1 part demerara sugar syrup*

    If you’re making a float, use a glass that will accommodate the scoop of ice cream.

    1. ADD all ingredients to a Collins glass over ice. Stir and serve with an orange twist.

    *Demarara sugar is simple syrup made with demarara (raw) sugar instead of white granulated sugar. It has much more flavor.
