Irish Cream has always been a nostalgic drink for me, although I don’t drink it a ton. When I was a kid, my dad used to have Irish cream on airplanes – I thought it smelled amazing and definitely made him let me eat the ice cubes after he was finished on more than one occasion. 🙊 Now, while I don’t have it often, (I’m more of a bar goer than an at home drinker) it’s a wintery drink that I lean on more than, say, eggnog.
If you follow me on social, you know that I recently became lactose intolerant, so I’ve been challenging myself to create non-dairy versions of a lot of old favorites. So, when Torani sent over their new Chestnut Praline syrup- I knew what I wanted to make…something both boozy and dairy free. Traditional Irish Cream has a bit of cocoa in it- which I replaced with the Chestnut Praline, because the nutty and caramelly flavors are perfect for this time of year. You’d be surprised how similar it tastes to traditional Irish cream. I gave some to my parents for a blind taste test and they both said it tasted exactly like it!
Chestnut Praline Irish Cream (Dairy Free) Recipe
- 1.5 oz Irish Whiskey (I used Powers)
- 3 oz coconut creamer (I use Trader Joe’s)
- 4 oz coffee, cold
- .5-1 oz Torani Chestnut Praline Syrup, to taste
Mix all ingredients and pour over ice.
Torani’s got you covered for the holiday season- the syrups make holiday drink making simple- whether they’re boozy or not! The possibilities are endless. Torani’s original line is made with real, simple, ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors. The sugar free line is sweetened with Splenda-with all of the flavor and none of the guilt.
