How to Make a Creamy Baileys Iced Coffee
We are making this Bailey’s iced coffee with our Freddo Espresso recipe. You can use the Freddo shaken espresso or follow along here.
First, start with the coffee. If you are using hot coffee allow it to sit for a few minutes to slightly cool. Make sure to use strong coffee for the best flavor. Then pour the regular coffee into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. You can use coffee ice cubes or regular ice cubes.
Next, fill the cocktail jigger with the baileys Irish cream.
Add it to the shaker.
Pop the top on the shaker and give it a good shake.
Using the cocktail strainer, carefully pour the boozy coffee into a tall glass.
Garnish the Baileys Cold Coffee
Top the Baileys coffee drink with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for a sweet treat.
This delicious chilled coffee is a fun way to combine coffee flavors with Irish cream liqueur. It is perfect for a hot day, special occasions, St Patrick’s Day, or as an after-dinner drink. Because we used the Freddo shaken espresso method this actually resembles a Baileys latte.
