What's your go-to after dinner "drink"? If you can't decide between a hot mug of coffee (decaf of course) or something a little stronger, then this Irish Coffee Cocktail is for you! The delicious blend of (Irish!) whiskey and java, with a touch of sweetness, sipped through the creamy foam topper, is the perfect nightcap.

When Do I Serve Irish Coffee?

Cold wintry nights (especially during mid-March when we're over the weather & wanting to celebrate the Emerald Isle) is the best time of year to break out the Irish whiskey and whip up one of these delicious Irish Coffees!

We also love to serve it as an alternative to a mimosa at a festive brunch. The coffee is welcomed in the morning. And the whiskey adds a festive flair, especially during the holidays.

Feel free to omit the liquor if you prefer a non-alcholic version and want to serve the coffee anytime of day.

Is This Recipe Easy?

Thanks to JOI plant milk bases, making it dairy free is as simple as can be! Rich, frothy JOI milk on top of a spiked coffee, what’s not to love?

The JOI milk froths up easily in the blender cup and especially well with a milk frother or steamer! Although this version is dairy free, we won’t be missing out on any flavor.

For this recipe, we love JOI almond, oat or cashew milk concentrate or use our sweetened oat milk creamer, which was designed specifically for coffee.  So good!

What Tips Make This Recipe Great?

We've got some suggestions about how to make this vegan irish coffee the best version of itself.

First, when brewing your hot coffee, the trick to getting a deep flavor is to whisk in some coconut sugar for sweetness. Feel free to substitute brown sugar instead of coconut sugar for even more complex flavor.

Obviously the whisky is important as well. Use your favorite Irish whisky to stick to "tradition." Add it to the sweetened coffee and savor every sip.

For a punch of flavor, we suggest adding a pinch of nutmeg. Then top with the ultra frothy JOI plant based creamer for your St. Patrick's Day (or anyday) treat! 

Feeling "extra"? How about topping with some whipped coconut cream and chocolate shavings?
