This Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee is an absolute treat. Great for breakfast, brunch or to sip in the evening! One of my new favorite Bailey’s Irish Cream recipes.
Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee is a sweet, comforting coffee cocktail. With only 3 ingredients, it’s simple and easy to make. Perfect for busy mornings or brunch with friends!
Are you a morning person? Sometimes I am, sometimes I’m not. Sometimes I wake up ready to conquer the world and other days I just want to roll back over and go back to sleep.
There are mornings where I’m stressed out by 8am – you know the days, when you’re running behind and nothing is going the way it’s supposed to and you’re already wishing it was 5 o’clock on Friday so you can have a drink.
Well, with this Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee, you don’t have to wait until 5 o’clock on Friday to indulge. In fact, I think it’s perfectly acceptable to start any day of the week with this delicious coffee cocktail.
After all, you were probably going to have a cup or two (or five) anyway!
As with most Bailey’s Irish cream drinks, Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee is sweet. The black coffee ice cubes do, obviously, counteract some of that sweetness but it’s almost like drinking breakfast for dessert.
Unless you’re one those people who drink iced coffees that are 3 parts milk to 1 part coffee, with some extra cream and sugar. 😉 Then it’s just as sweet as your morning regular.
To make this coffee cocktail even more flavorful, feel free to use flavored coffee. I think vanilla or hazelnut with taste delicious in this Irish cream drink!
While I did joke about drinking this in the morning, and I do think that one is perfectly acceptable on most days, Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee is also the ultimate brunch coffee cocktail, a lovely caffeine-infused alternative to a mimosa.
Or, drink it in the evening as dessert. I do think the rich, comforting flavor of the Irish cream makes this a great holiday coffee cocktail!
This Irish cream drink uses coffee ice cubes so it is something that you do need to plan in advance. Or, you can always just keep some coffee ice cubes in your freezer for when the desire strikes.
Coffee ice cubes are also a great way to avoid watered down iced coffees in general.
