SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Baileys and Coffee: A delicious, warm, coffee beverage with a little kick to help you get through the cold.

Primary Alcohol: Baileys Irish Cream

This drink comes from my own home — my mother is a huge fan of Baileys, one of the few times she drinks coffee that isn’t from Starbucks is when she mixes it with Irish Cream.

The drink is topped with a layer of foam. Irish Cream is no different than the creamers you find at a diner, just spiked with a little Irish.

Appearance: Mocha colored with a bubbly foam layer on the top, served in a mug.

Taste: Your preferred coffee with the flavored cream, the alcohol is subtle but can be dangerous.

Advice: Try with one of the other flavors of Baileys, such as caramel or mint. It’s already a foo-foo drink, so why not enjoy the flavors available. You don’t need to add sugar or milk, but make sure the coffee is steaming hot because Baileys is a chilled liqueur and can eliminate the heat of the coffee.
