Irish Coffee Float


Everyone is used to that night when you rummage through the fridge and throw a meal together with all of the week’s left overs. But now that I’m baking so much and not always finishing off each ingredient, I’ve had to come up with creative ways to use my leftovers…

From one of those crazy brainstorms, the Irish Coffee Float was born! It stated off as an experiment when the boyfriend and I returned from vacation, and he really wanted an “adult” iced coffee. But iced coffee with Bailey’s sounded just a little too normal, so my brain went racing…


I had leftover Guinness ice cream in the freezer! So why not throw in a scoop? Oh, and there’s Whiskey Caramel in the fridge! Let’s drizzle that on top! And, like magic, a new favorite drink was created. (And we finished off the leftover ice cream and caramel…)

This drink is perfect for cooling off in the upcoming hot summer days! Click below for the recipe. Have a question? Feel free to ask in the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂
