Iced Irish Coffee

Iced Irish Coffee | Dressed In OrangeHappy St. Patrick’s Day! Most of you probably celebrated over the weekend, but this is a refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed year-round.  None of that green cocktail nonsense.

Iced Irish Coffee | Dressed In OrangeYou just need Irish whiskey, cream, simple syrup, and your favorite cold brew coffee. Cold brew is coffee that’s been slowly brewed without any heat over a period of hours. I used Stumptown‘s version (available at any Whole Foods) for its rich and subtly sweet flavor — excellent for a coffee cocktail.  If you don’t have cold brew on hand, you can use regular drip coffee, but be sure to brew strong and let it cool completely.
