Whip up this delicious seasonal Iced Peppermint Coffee drink in minutes in the comfort of your own home using cold brew, peppermint extract, half and half, whipped cream, and crushed peppermints!
I have another delicious iced coffee recipe for you today. Back in October I shared my delicious (and easy to make recipe for Iced Pumpkin Coffee). Today, I have a recipe for an Iced Peppermint Coffee. I love making seasonal coffee-house beverages at home. It tastes just as good and best of all I can control what goes in it. If I want a little extra sugar or syrup ok and maybe some whipped cream I can have it all!
I didn’t have traditional candy canes on hand for this recipe. I had the chalky-melt in your mouth type. They actually worked great (despite not really being able to crumble like I wanted them too). Over time they disintegrated into the coffee making it that much more pepperminty (yes that is a word).
I used this Torani peppermint coffee sauce that I found during my last trip to World Market. I had to buy it plus I also found a dark chocolate and white chocolate sauce. So get ready–I’m sure I’ll have more coffee recipes in my future! Of course I also add in paper straws because they are fun. Of course they aren’t fun once they start to get mushy on you. But I tend to drink my coffee really fast so I never have to deal with this happening to me!
Pick up the peppermint sauce and make Iced Peppermint Coffee (again and again and again). The one $6 bottle will make you a dozen cups of iced coffee where as you would spend close to $6 on just one iced coffee!

If you make this copycat starbucks peppermint mocha, I would be honored and love for you to take the time to leave a star rating and comment! I spend hours developing and testing these recipes, and always love to hear feedback and user experience!
