Ahhh… winter time! It’s cold, it’s dark, it’s a bit miserable, to be honest, so nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa, watching a girly movie with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, right? WRONG! There actually is something much, much better: coffee hour with Baileys. The clever people at Baileys have come up with a number of great coffee cocktail recipes, so you can enjoy a cheeky hot drink in the evening.
For me, Baileys has always been a drink I’ve enjoyed over ice, so it was great to discover it in a whole new way. All the way back in September (oopsie, bit late wit this one…!), I was sent a box full of Baileys goodies so I could try out some of the recipes myself, so one miserable Saturday afternoon, a couple of helpful friends and I spent a couple of hours trying them out (all in the name of research of course!). As it turns out, coffee + Baileys is a combo made in heaven.
Below you’ll find a couple of our favourite Coffee Cocktails with Baileys… they’re delicious and a little bit naughty. Oh, and if I can give you one piece of advice: if you’re having more than one, consider using decaf coffee instead of regular. I couldn’t get to sleep that night, then I realised I had the equivalent of about 7 espresso’s…
(simple and classicyet so, so nice!)
Pour 100ml of espresso (2 shots) into a latte glass. Combine 150ml of hot milk with 50ml Baileys and then slowly pour into the glass.
The Simple One
50ml Baileys Biscotti Flavour
25ml Grand Marnier
150ml cold-brewed strong and aromatic coffee
Baileys Tiramisu Frappe
In a blender, mix 1 scoop of coffee ice cream, 1 shot of espresso, 50ml of Baileys Biscotti Flavour and 2 small biscotti or biscuits of your choice. Pour in the frappe and add a sprinkling of biscotti crumbs.
