Chantilly Laced Coffee Punch

November 10, 2011


Author Notes: The ultimate Iced Coffee!

There are many delicious fruit punch bowls at parties with bubbly, ice cream or both; I like them but often lean towards a beverage that is not so sweet.

Coffee and Irish cream is a popular hot libation, this creamy coffee punch, served cold, tastes similar. Buy the coffee and Irish whiskey of your choice to make this, and then serve it up in copious party-sized quantities; it is oh so good for your coffee-addicted friends!

Ingredients

PUNCH

  • 6 cups fresh brewed strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup sweeten condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups half & half
  • 1-1/2 cups Irish whiskey
  • Chantilly cream (see recipe below)
  • Cocoa powder

CHANTILLY CREAM

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Irish whiskey
  • Powdered sugar – up to 2 tablespoons

Directions

PUNCH

  1. Optional – If desired, make and freeze coffee ice cubes or a coffee ring ahead of party time to place on the bottom of your punch bowl.
  2. While the coffee is still hot, stir in the condensed milk and chocolate syrup.
  3. Refrigerate, chill thoroughly. This can be done the night before.
  4. Add the vanilla & almond extracts, half & half and the whiskey, stir to blend.
  5. Pour into a punch bowl and top with Chantilly cream. Lightly dust with cocoa powder.
  6. Ladle into cups.
  7. Keep leftover punch refrigerated, drink cold or add a shot to your hot coffee.

CHANTILLY CREAM

  1. Whip the cream, either by hand or with a hand mixer until soft peaks form. Add whiskey and the powdered sugar - tablespoon at a time, sweeten to your preference. Whip until medium firm peaks form and the cream has almost doubled in volume.

Wow - this sounds amazing! I am not much of a punch drinker - but THIS I would definitely indulge in!!! Have you had it warm? With pie? After Thanksgiving dinner? (you see where I am going with this :-)

Thanks, aargersi! Yes, I see where you are going with this. It goes great with everything and at anytime of day...especially during the Holidays! I haven't this punch warm, but my husband says a shot is great in a hot cup of coffee, much like you would do with regular Irish Cream...talk about double the caffeine!! This recipe is tweaked off the Irish Cream recipe I have posted out here. I hope you try it, would love to hear back. :)
