Get ready to do a Christmas Irish jig!
That’s right, folks! You remember the Irish Cream Cold Brew (Starbucks’ curly red-haired cousin of the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew) we’ve been roving all over the Disney World highlands in search of? Well, we finally got our hands on one!
We’ve been on the lookout for this seasonal drink ever since Starbucks announced they’d be carrying it this holiday season. But we’ve been striking out for days as many of the Disney World Starbucks locations we visited didn’t have the ingredients on hand to make it!
But low and behold, our trip to the Trolley Car Cafe at Hollywood Studios today proved to be a fruitful yield! Here it is! The Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew! We ordered up a grande 16oz size for $4.79!
The Irish Cream Cold Brew has a rich, foamy head – just like the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew! But instead of pumpkin puree and a dusting of pumpkin spice, the Irish Cream Cold Brew features Starbucks’ signature cold brew mixed with Irish cream syrup, and topped with a vanilla sweet cream cold foam and a sprinkling of cocoa powder!
And we gotta tell ya, this thing is SO DELICIOUS! While we love the richness of Starbucks cold brew (which is much smoother and less acidic than their iced coffee), the sweetness from the Irish cream syrup and the little hit of chocolate from the cocoa powder really made the drink! It’s a serious YUM from us!
And guess what? This drink is not a Disney parks exclusive! You can try the drink for yourself at ANY Starbucks! Plus, according to Starbucks’ website, you can get the Irish Cream Cold Brew as an Irish Cream Nitro Cold Brew — if the Starbucks location serves Nitro Cold Brew! So, whether you’re in the parks or at home this holiday season, be sure to check it out!
