Irish Coffee is a delicious sweetened coffee drink with whiskey topped with unsweetened whipped cream. So Yummy!
I can still remember the first time I tried it! We were in Vegas for my sweet friend’s 40th Birthday! We stayed in downtown Las Vegas and there was an Irish Pub right by our hotel. Her birthday is the day before St. Patty’s Day and there was a big parade for St. Patty’s. We sat in the pub and had Irish Coffee listening to the bagpipes rehearse before the parade. It was so cool!
Have You Tried Irish Coffee? I think it’s a fantastic drink to warm you up on a cool day or to add another adult beverage to your brunch routine.
It is super easy to make and tastes fantastic! You only need 4 ingredients to make this beverage!
Irish Coffee contains coffee, sugar, whiskey and whipped cream. It’s not overly sweet but it is creamy and delicious! If you find it is too much whiskey feel free to cut back on the pour.
Is Whiskey Gluten Free?
Whiskey can be made from grains, however, the distillation process removes the gluten according to the Beyond Celiac Website. Most Whiskies are gluten-free after distillation as long as they don’t add anything back into them such as flavors. However, if you react to it please don’t drink it.
To make Irish Coffee, I used an Irish Whiskey known as Jameson. You can find it in almost any store that sells alcohol.
How Do I Make Irish Coffee?
It is super easy to make Irish Coffee! You are only a few minutes away from enjoying this delicious drink!
First thing is to brew some coffee. I have a Keurig, so I made 1 cup of coffee.
Place the coffee in a small pot and put it on the stove on low.
Add the sugar to the coffee. Whisk it in until it dissolves. This gives the coffee a delicious sweet flavor. Remove from heat.
Whip your cream. I used coconut cream and put it in my blender for a few seconds until it was thick. You can buy a can of coconut cream or refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge and then scoop out the solid part. You want to whip the solid part and it makes perfect whipped cream!
If you want to use dairy cream whip it until it has soft peaks.
If you like sweet coffee drinks, feel free to sweeten the whipped cream or coconut cream!
Pour the shots of whiskey into the coffee and stir to combine.
In a coffee cup or decorative coffee glass, pour in some of the coffee and whiskey mixture. Scoop a little cream onto the top. Let it melt into the coffee.

I have also added some vodka and creme de menthe and Andes Mint Chocolates for added fun.
When I was younger, I remember my family going to McDonald’s for milkshakes occasionally when we went to the city. I lived in a town about 2 hours from a major city. If it was near St. Patty’s Day, I would always get a Shamrock Shake. Obviously now that I can’t eat gluten or ice cream, I had to modify it a little.
Do you have a favorite milkshake flavor?
How Did The Shamrock Shake Begin?
I didn’t know this answer so I had to look it up on good ole Google! HA! HA! It started before I was born and instantly became a hit. McDonald’s owner Hal Rosen created it to celebrate St. Patty’s Day back in 1967. The company debuted it in 1970 and it became a hit! It started out as Lemon Lime Flavored but eventually became Mint flavored. I am glad the flavor was changed. You can read all about it here.
What Makes These “Dirty” Shamrock Shakes?
The dirty part of these shakes is the added vodka and creme de menthe as well as the gluten-free Oreo cookies. It makes them adult only and the added chocolate from the Oreos is amazing! These are definitely a once-a-year treat!
This recipe makes 2 drinking glass size Dirty Shamrock Shakes and is best made in batches. You could get 4 tiny shakes out of the batch depending on how much sweet treat you want.
What Do I Need To Make These:
You will need a blender and a few ingredients:
4 Cups of Vanilla Ice Cream- I used non dairy but you can use your favorite brand.
1/4 Cup of Milk- I used Coconut but you can use cow or your favorite nut milk.
2 oz Creme De Menthe
2 oz Vodka- I used Titos but you can use your favorite brand.
5 Andes Mints
6 Gluten Free Oreo Cookie or your favorite sandwich cookie.
Whipped Cream- I used almond whipped cream.
Maraschino Cherries- I used the real ones without dye but use your favorite ones.
To make them fancy, you can melt chocolate ahead of time and dip the glasses in it and roll them in chopped up Andes mints. Put them on a baking sheet and place in the fridge to harden the chocolate.
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth Pour into your glass and top with whipped cream and a cherry if you desire. I prefer a fat straw so it doesn’t get clogged while slurping this delicious shake!
