French vanilla ice cream
12 fluid ounces
Irish cream liqueur
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.
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.
Ok, there is only one thing to say for this....WOW! I can not wait until I make this again. Cozy by the fire watching falling leaves...great drink.
MMMMMMMMMMM....this simple extra at our party was the reason for lots of hugs and kisses from my sweet toothed, coffee loving male friends. Must make this much more often Kim....
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
mmmmmm....tried this tonight....LOVE IT!!!!!!!
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 ...
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!
Irish whiskey, hot coffee, and whipped cream knock out winter’s chill.
