Frozen Coffee & Vodka

With the country closing down for the great pandemic of 2020, we’ve lost quite a few of our favorite food and drink spots for a while. On Sullivan’s Island, we would always cap off the night with a jaunt to the island center, and grab a Frozen Irish Coffee at Hometeam Barbecue.

We decided to make our own version, tossing out many of the traditional ingredients and re-creating a refreshing frozen drink that admittedly does not resemble a typical Irish Coffee, but what the heck – we made it work, and it’s now a favorite.


  • 6 cups of ice
  • 2 cups vodka
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee grounds
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 2 Skor or Heath bars, more if you want to add a piece to the final drink

Making it

  • Add all the ingredients into an immersion blender and mix at a high speed until the drink is smooth. Serve with a straw and 1/4 of a candy bar.
