Dublin Iced Coffee
With the temperatures rising, the Dublin Iced Coffee is a great way to cool off this summer. It’s made with just a few ingredients and offers you a refreshing drink with a little pick me up.
You will start with some cold espresso coffee (our Organic Espresso Whole Bean Coffee is perfect). You can make regular espresso and let it cool or you can make cold brewed coffee.
You will also need simple syrup, heavy cream, Irish whiskey, and some stout beer. Something that I love is that it only takes about 5 minutes to make. You may have to add in about 10 to 15 minutes if you need to make the espresso hot and then let it cool.

- 2 oz cold espresso coffee
- 3/4 oz simple syrup
- 2 oz stout beer
- 1-1/2 oz Irish whiskey
- 1/2 oz heavy cream
- Add the espresso, simple syrup, stout beer, and Irish Whiskey to a glass and stir.
- Add ice to fill.
- Slowly add the heavy cream. It will make its way through the mixture with some of it going all the way to the bottom of the glass.
- After you’ve added all of it together, it’s time to enjoy your Dublin Iced Coffee. How easy was that?
How to Make Your Own Simple Syrup
You can either purchase simple syrup or make your own. If want to make it a bit more personal, doing it yourself is simple. Here is the recipe:
1 cup white or brown sugar
1 cup water
Combine the two ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring them to a boil and stir. Continue stirring until the sugar dissolves. Wait until it cools before you add it to the Dublin Iced Coffee recipe.
Alternatives to the Original Dublin Iced Coffee Recipe
You can also make a few changes to give yourself additional ways to enjoy your Dublin Iced Coffee Recipe.
One of my favorites is to leave out the Irish Whiskey and replace the heavy cream with Bailey’s Irish Cream. You will want to add another ounce or two of espresso to create more volume.
You can also add some whipped topping. This will really dress it up!
In addition to the whipped topping, you can also garnish it with some ground cinnamon.
