One of the larger coffee roasters/coffee shops in our area is the Roasterie. We love their coffee and treat ourselves on occasion when we are in town. At the beginning of the month, I saw their post on Insta that the drink of the month was the Nutty Irishman. It sounded yummy and I couldn’t wait to try it.
So on our next trip to the city, my husband treated me to my coffee, and some yummy cold brew to take home.
It was a great iced coffee, the flavors were nice without being overpowering or too sweet. I needed more of this in my life! LOL
I started thinking… hazelnut and Irish cream? I had hazelnut syrup at home thanks to a recent find at Home Goods. I could get one of those flavored creamers at the store? No, I only drink those on occasion, I can make something healthier at home….
So I began Googling and found several recipes for Irish Cream coffee creamer. Most had sweetened condensed milk in them, but I found this simple one at The Gracious Wife, without additional sweeteners, and I had all the ingredients at home, minus the instant coffee 🙂 YAY!
Since I was planning on using some of my coffee ice cubes, and a quality cold brew, I thought maybe I could get away with not using the instant coffee, and I was right. It is SO simple and so delicious, you should totally whip up a batch to have on hand to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
I used my coffee ice cubes, filled my glass about 3/4 full of cold brew, and added 2.5 pumps of hazelnut syrup and gave it a quick stir with my straw. I gave the irish cream coffee creamer a good shake in it’s quart jar, and toppped off my glass. It is SO good, you need to give this a try!
PS it is so good hot as well, with frothed milk…. YUM!!!!
