‘Tipsy’ iced coffee is a thing – and your summer deserves one

Tipsy iced coffee

Yes, yes – we know.

The concept of adding alcohol to coffee is nothing new.

But while you might have had a few Irish and Baileys coffees in your day, have you ever had an iced alcoholic coffee?

And if the answer is ‘no’ – well, then maybe it’s about time.

This delicious version uses Amaretto and whipped cream – making it the perfect after-dinner treat or simply just when you fancy something sweet with a bit of a coffee hit to it.


  • 4 cups strong brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup amaretto
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream


  • In a large bowl, whisk coffee, amaretto and 1/4 cup sugar. Cool to room temperature.
  • Transfer to an 8-in. square dish. Freeze 1 hour. Stir with a fork. Freeze 2-3 hours longer or until completely frozen, stirring every 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add remaining sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • To serve, stir mixture with a fork; spoon into glasses. Top with whipped cream. Serve immediately.
