Ireland has been enjoying some really good summer weather (for a change) and what better hot weather drink could there be than iced coffee... this time with a particularly Irish kick! 

As the weather starts to heat up again, there’s nothing better than an iced coffee to save the day. But, how about a twist? 

Coffee Friend has put together a recipe to really tickle the taste buds and make the most of your coffee in the heat at home, a cool take on the classic Irish coffee.

Oh, happy sunny days!! Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Iced Irish coffee recipe


  • 200 ml hot coffee
  • One tablespoon hazelnut syrup
  • Splash of Irish whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons of whipping/heavy cream
  • Eight cubes of ice
  • Glass cup or a glass
  • A bowl


Make the coffee as normal and put to one side for a couple of minutes. 

Add four cubes of ice into a glass and stir once or twice with a long-handled spoon if you have one to help cool the glass. Add the hazelnut syrup and Irish whisky/extract, stir once more. Now the coffee is no longer boiling hot, add to the glass and mix.

Once the ice has dissolved, add the remaining four cubes of ice to keep cool

Whisk the heavy cream in a bowl until foamy, but not too thick. Let the cream drip down the whisk to form the top layer of the Irish coffee.
