Baileys irish coffee:
- Brew your coffee; Strong coffee works best.
- Pour 1 cup (240 ml) of heavy cream and 3 tablespoons (44 ml) of Baileys into a metal bowl to make your whipped cream.
- Mix your whiskey, sugar, and coffee in a tall glass:
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) to 3 tablespoons (44 ml) of Irish whiskey (Irish whiskey is the go-to liquor for Irish coffee, but other bourbon, whiskey, or rye can work as well)
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of brown sugar (White sugar can work as well, as can honey, maple syrup, or other sweeteners)
- Around 1 cup (240 ml) of coffee, leaving .5 inches (1.3 cm) at the top for the whipped cream.
- Top your drink with a liberal amount of the Baileys whipped cream you prepared in step two
- Add a citrus twist to your coffee and cream with a B-52. The B-52 is a layered shot that starts with the densest liquid on the bottom of the shot glass. Pour in Kahlua, then shots of Baileys, and ounces of Triple Sec (orange liqueur) to create a triple-decker combination of coffee, cream, and citrus flavors.
- Make a Blow Job for a creamier drink; this is Baileys Irish and whipped cream. Layer this shooter without mixing or blending it. Pour this into a shot glass together with of Baileys and whipped cream.
- Pour an equal amount of Baileys, vodka, Amaretto, and Kahlua into a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice until cold and fully mixed. Strain into a shot glass.
Choose your ice cream between vanilla and Chocolate which tend to go well with this recipe. Feel free to consider mint chocolate chip, peanut butter, rum raisin, pumpkin, or cookies and cream.
Choose your mix-ins. Select flavors that pair well with Baileys, like chocolate, citrus, or Amaretto. Consider adding:
- Syrups such as hot fudge, caramel, or butterscotch.
- Fresh fruit like a banana, peaches, or strawberries.
- Peanuts, walnuts, or almonds.
Mix ice cream, Baileys, and your mix-ins and blend to your desired consistency. Measure portions of ice cream, Baileys and milk; blend in your blender or milkshake maker.
- For a thicker milkshake, use a little less milk.
- For a thinner milkshake, use a little more.
