Frozen Irish Coffee
This drink is inspired by the frozen Irish coffee served at Molly’s at the Market in the French Quarter of New Orleans, where it’s served from a frozen daiquiri machine. Freezing milk in an ice cube tray gives you a similar creamy consistency to the version at Molly’s, which contains no ice. Brandy provides a mellower flavor than Irish whiskey, but feel free to substitute whiskey for the brandy if you prefer.
- Serves: 2 persons
- ½cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 ¼cups whole milk, frozen in an ice cube tray

Step 1Add ice cream, frozen milk cubes, chilled coffee, brandy and coffee liqueur to a blender. Combine on high until the ice is crushed and the drink is smooth. (It will have the consistency of a thin milkshake.)
Step 2Divide between highball glasses and swirl 1/8 teaspoon coffee grounds on the top of each drink.
