German Style Eiskaffee (Iced Coffee Drink)

German Style Eiskaffee (Iced Coffee Drink) created by HeatherFeather

In Germany, there are charming areas outside many restaurants called a "Biergarten" with patio furniture in a garden setting where customers gather around 4pm for an hour or two to relax with either a beer or an iced coffee. This is the typical way an iced coffee is served in the spring & summer at German Beergardens in the Bonn area, where I currently live. It is also a popular choice as a dessert beverage. The measurements are approximate and will vary greatly based on the size of glass used. They also often stick a decorative long toothpick with metallic streamers to garnish as well as the cookie (we think they look like sparklers).

Ready In:
5mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream, good quality
  • 1 cup strong brewed german coffee, chilled,to taste
  • 12 cup whipped cream, sweetened,to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grated sweet chocolate, to garnish,approximately
  • 1 fancy wafer cookies (in a cylander or a heart shape)

directions

  • Place ice cream scoop into a decorative wine goblet or tall clear drinking glass.
  • Add coffee to fill glass 1/2-3/4 full (amount will vary based on size of glass).
  • Completely cover with a mountain of sweetened whipped cream (use the canned kind or a decorating bag to make decorative swirls)- the whipped cream should be plentiful and just start to peak over the top of the glass rim.
  • Sprinkle with freshly grated good quality chocolate.
  • Stick a wafer cookie into the whipped cream off to the side.
  • Serve with some sugar on the side (for those who want to add more sweetness- although the ice cream and the whipped cream pretty much cover this), a long spoon, and a straw.

    This is PERFECT!! I studied in Germany and travelled there and in Austria and Switzerland. This is one of the special things I brought back and I truly love it. Your recipe is the same as that of my German mother-in-law, except that we sweeten the coffee while it is hot, then let it cool before putting the Eiskaffee together. I have made this for many friends and every single one has loved it as I do. I think Food.com should allow an exclusive 6 stars for this.

    My neighbor's children went to Dunkin Donuts and bought this iced coffee shake with whipped cream on top. When my 7-year-old saw that, he immediately wanted what they had, then I thought of trying this recipe. It is a yummy, creamy blend of flavors. Luckily, I had Dallmayr coffee, and all of the ingredients at hand to make Eiskaffee. Thank you for sharing this classic iced coffee recipe.

    Ooooh, this is soo good! And so easy! It's a bit like a coffee milkshake, only better! I forgot to chill the coffee and just used some coffee left after guests had left. So it wasn't very "eis", but it sure hit the spot after a long day of cooking and cleaning and entertaining! Thank you so much for posting, HeatherFeather! Made for Comfort Cafe. UPDATE: I've since made this again, this time using cold coffee as called for, and it was even better. I also made on for DH using chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla, and he loved it! Thanks again, HeatherFeather!
