Irish Creme is a classic liqueur that is commonly added to coffee beverages.

Dunkin’s Irish Creme Flavored Coffee was first launched in 2013 and has been a fan-favorite seasonal drink ever since.

No, Dunkin’s Irish Creme Flavored Coffee does not contain any alcohol. For those who are not familiar, the classic Irish Creme is typically made with Irish whiskey, cream, coffee, and other flavorings such as vanilla and nutmeg. So how exactly did Dunkin’ recreate the Irish Creme flavor for its Irish Creme Flavored Coffee without adding any alcohol?

According to a blog post on the Dunkin’ website, the flavors in the seasonal sip that are most recognized with Irish Creme whiskey “come from the distilling and aging process, so they can be added into the drink sans alcohol.”

Dunkin’ used a combination of natural and artificial flavoring ingredients to recreate the flavor of Irish whiskey without adding actual Irish whiskey to its Irish Creme flavored Coffee. Paired with a subtle, creamy sweetness and a touch of vanilla, this coffee creation can be enjoyed hot or iced, depending on your preference.

What’s the best snack to go with Dunkin’s Irish Creme Flavored Coffee?
