Irish Cream Cold Brew

Vanilla Cold Foam


  • Make cold foam.
    Half & half, vanilla syrup, and salt go into a French press. Use the French press plunger and pump 40 times. The cold foam will fluff up in volume from the air pushed into the half & half.
  • Combine cold brew coffee and Irish cream syrup.
  • Assemble drink.
    Pour Irish cream cold brew into a cup of ice. Top with cold foam.
    Optional: Sprinkle cocoa powder as garnish.



  • For the vanilla cold foam, instead of using vanilla syrup, you can use 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  • The recipe uses vanilla syrup to flavor the cold foam but you can use the Irish cream syrup instead if you don't want to use another syrup.
  • Cold foam can be made with milk if you don't have half & half.
  • Cold brew coffee is what's used to make this drink but you can use coffee made in a coffee machine, Nespresso, or a Keurig. Make strong coffee in a coffee machine using 2-3 tablespoons of ground coffee for a cup of water.
  • To cool down hot coffee, put coffee in the freezer for 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for an hour.
