Ingredient Notes

Jameson Cold Brew with cold foam ingredients.
  • Jameson Cold Brew Irish Whiskey
    Cold brew coffee and whiskey in one bottle. Use it to make cocktails or mix it in with other drinks like Coke or hot chocolate.
  • Cold brew
    Just the Jameson Cold Brew is too strong on its own, so cold brewed coffee is added. Use any kind of cold brew you like. I highly recommend making cold brew at home since it’s so easy.
  • Vanilla syrup
    To sweeten and flavor the drink and the cold foam. Use store-bought or homemade vanilla syrup. The homemade version takes less than 5 minutes using 3 ingredients, so it’s very easy to make.
  • Half & half
    Half cream and half milk, this is to make the cold foam.
  • Ice
    Use filtered water to make ice if possible, for a better tasting drink.

For full ingredients and instructions, scroll down to the recipe.

  1. Combine half & half and vanilla syrup in a French press. Place lid and move the plunger up and down to make cold foam.
    Set aside.
  2. Pour Jameson Cold Brew, cold brew, and vanilla syrup into a cup.
    Stir to combine.
  3. Add ice.
  4. Top with vanilla cold foam.
    Don’t stir the drink and drink through the top layer of cold foam.

Expert Tips

  • Homemade cold brew takes at least 20 hours to steep in the refrigerator, so make this first. Or, you can use store-bought cold brew.
  • Homemade vanilla syrup can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Instead of vanilla cold foam, vanilla cream can be used if you don’t want to create foam. Combine half & half and vanilla syrup and pour it into the drink.
  • If you don’t have a French press or a handheld milk frother to make cold foam, use a large jar with a tight lid and vigorously shake half & half and vanilla syrup until it thickens.
  • Don’t overfill the French press. Since the cold foam will almost double in volume as air is pumped in, only fill the French press halfway.
