Iced Coffee with Kahlua and Bailey’s is the perfect pick-me-up. It’s smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet with Irish cream and coffee flavors.

Iced Coffee with Kahlua and Bailey’s is a cold, boozy, adult indulgence that gives an ordinary cup of coffee a little something special. It’s great to have mid-afternoon or as an after-dinner drink.

Of course, you can always switch out the regular coffee for decaf if you prefer. Are you a coffee lover?

I have to be honest. I couldn’t stand the taste of coffee until 2009 when we moved to Miami and John talked me into trying something from a local coffee shop.

Let me tell you, after one drink of that White Chocolate Mocha, I was hooked. Now we like to get our coffee delivered.

Coffee delivery is a great option especially when you get a discount. Peet’s coffee has an online store with a delivery option.

Ever since we’ve been trying different brands of coffees and playing around with various recipes.

It’s pretty amazing what you can make with a touch of flavored syrup and some whipped cream.

For a non-alcoholic coffee fix, try our new iced white chocolate mocha drink!

The Irish cream, coffee, and other ingredients for the recipe.

This recipe was born of my love of Irish Cream coffee but out of necessity to have a cold drink for the hot summer months.

I like to think of it as the cousin to one of my favorite winter drinks, Coffee with Kahlua.

The Irish cream being poured into a glass filled with ice.

All you need for this recipe is a blender, coffee pot, and a couple of coffee mugs.

In just a few minutes you’ll have a tasty drink that’s perfectly sippable and will make an iced coffee lover out of anyone.

The coffee is being added to the ice and Irish cream.

One of the best things about this drink is how easy it is to modify. If you aren’t a fan of Kahlua, simply leave it out.

Do you like a certain flavor of non-dairy creamer? Add your favorite kind!

Iced Coffee with Kahlua and Bailey’s can be made using soy or nut milk or omitting one of the alcohols. It’s simple to mix things up, so make it your own.

If you’re looking for a blended, boozy drink try a Frozen Mudslide! It’s full of ice cream, chocolate, Kahlua, Bailey’s, and vodka.

The finished iced coffees topped with caramel and whipped cream.

I use leftover coffee and freeze into ice cubes and use the “coffee ice cubes” instead of just “cubes”. Yum!

I'm so excited to show my husband! He's a huge coffee lover and anything with Baileys and Kahlua will make him smile all the more. I'm not sure I can make mine as pretty as yours, but I'll give it a try! x

Thank you, Ali! I hope your husband loves the drink. Kim does an amazing job on the pictures. She has the staging and editing thing down, for sure. No worries, my food usually isn't as pretty as hers lol! You can probably tell a difference between Kim's cooking and my cooking just by looking at the dishes. Thanks again for commenting and have a lovely Wednesday :)

I love my coffee! As long as it's sweetened. And OH. MY. GOD. This looks delish! I always have a vanilla caramel, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to take a little time and make something like this to spoil myself with on the weekends. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, Jacqui! I am thrilled you like this coffee treat and happy you want to try it. Have a lovely Tuesday :)
