Baileys Latte Recipe Simple Ingredients
To make this easy recipe all you need is:
- 1 1/2 oz shot of espresso
- 1 1/2 oz of Baileys Irish cream liqueur
- 4 1/2 oz milk
- optional garnish: chocolate shavings, whipped cream
How to Make a Hot Baileys Silky Latte
First, start with the espresso. You don’t need a fancy espresso machine to make a great espresso shot. You can use a Moka pot, or Aeropress, which is similar to a French press, or you can use really strong hot coffee if that’s what’s easiest for you.
Pour the espresso into a footed glass mug or latte glass.
You can’t have Baileys coffee with Baileys, so measure out the Baileys original Irish cream next.
Add the Baileys to the glass.
Heat up your milk in a milk frothing pitcher and then use a handheld frother to create an airy foam with the warm milk.
Make sure that your glass has enough room for the frothy milk.
Carefully pour the frothed milk into the Bailey’s Irish cream saving the frothy foam for the top.
Garnish the top with dark chocolate shavings and enjoy this delicious Irish cream coffee latte.

You can also add whipped cream and cocoa powder to this classic coffee drink. The weight of the whipped cream will sink into the delicious coffee drink and add a hint of sweetness.
The silky texture of this classic Irish coffee pairs well with homemade biscotti, or even ice cream to make your new favorite dessert. This sweet coffee is better than hot chocolate and a great way to warm up on a cold day.
