I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

I should mention before the recipe that David was so taken by the name “Shakerato” posted on the café board for this iced coffee drink, that he ordered it.  Turns out he also liked it.


Blended Iced Coffee



2 medium scoops vanilla or coffee ice cream, softened slightly

2 or 3 shots strong espresso, cooled

1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream

1/2 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract

A few ice cubes

Unsweetened cocoa powder or grated chocolate


In a cocktail shaker or blender, combine the ice cream, espresso, Baileys, vanilla and ice.

Shake or blend vigorously until the ice cream has melted and is smooth.

Pour into two short tumblers and sprinkle the tops with cocoa powder. (Strain if you don’t want pieces of ice in your drinks.)

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
