Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew is a cold coffee drink consisting of Irish Cream syrup and cold brew coffee.

It is garnished with Irish Cream cold foam and sweet cocoa powder.

According to Starbucks, this beverage is best described as follows:

Everything you could desire in a cocktail to sip while daydreaming about the holidays, and then some.

Starbucks, Cold Brew with Irish cream syrup swirled throughout, capped with a cloud of sweet vanilla cream, and finished with a hint of cocoa.

Starbucks claims that the family tradition of an employee who worked on the product of blending batches of Irish Cream to add to coffee and present as gifts served as the inspiration for creating this beverage.

The chocolate goes so swimmingly with the cocoa notes in the coffee is one of my favorite things about this drink; it’s a match made in heaven.
