Baileys Iced Coffee Cocktail

I’m a huge coffee drinker. In fact our whole family goes through a LOT of starbucks dark roasted coffee beans in a year.

When cold brews came out I immediately got hooked on those too. Cold brews are wonderful in coffee cocktails like this one.

Baileys and Kahlua are SO incredibly good with cold brew. and the combo makes a wonderful iced coffee.

I made this drink recipe for all of the coffee fans. This coffee cocktail can be adjusted to your personal preferences with ease.

What Alcohol mixes with Iced Coffee?

Iced Coffee is delicious when mixed with the right alcohol. Kahlua and Baileys are our favorite choice, but they are certainly not the only options. Here are a few of our favorite alcohol additions to iced coffee:

  1. Bourbon (Maple is a delicious choice)
  2. Triple Sec
  3. Vanilla Vodka
  4. Whipped Cream Vodka
  5. RumChata
  6. Tequila
  7. Whiskey
  8. Espresso Liqueur
  9. Chocolate Liqueur
  10. Butterscotch Schnapps

Is Kahlua good in Iced Coffee?

Kahlua is a great addition in Iced Coffee. Kahlua is a rum based coffee liqueur. This delicious Liqueur is made with real Arabica coffee beans. Kahlua is sweet and smooth and only 20% proof, making it an easy addition in with hot or iced coffee.

Adding Baileys in will make it a creamier iced beverage. Baileys is a cream based liqueur made from Irish Whiskey. Baileys has a warm and sweet tone to it that mixes great into coffee. Baileys will give your iced coffee an alcohol based creamer addition.

Does Kahlua need to be Refrigerated?

Kahlua is a shelf stable Liqueur that does not require refrigeration. The best place to store Kahlua is in a cool dark place. Kahlua will start to go bad 18 months after opening.

What is the difference between Baileys and Kahlua?

Baileys and Kahlua are both Liqueurs, but they have different alcohol bases and flavor additions. Kahlua is a rum based liqueur that is infused with 100% Arabica coffee beans. Sugar is also added to Kahlua to make it into a sweet liqueur. Baileys is a cream liqueur that is made from Irish Whiskey. Baileys has cream and cocoa added to it.

However, the whipped cream and chocolate syrup really take it up a level in flavor. Something about all the creaminess and chocolate with strong coffee.

the chocolate syrup descends into this iced coffee drink recipe for an extra filip of flavor.

I used a straight sided tom collins glass since this is a cold coffee drink. Use an irish coffee mug if you would rather. Either will work fine.
