Baileys Irish Cream is a delicious cream liqueur made of cream, cocoa, and Irish whiskey. It’s sweet and you can drink it on its own with a few ice cubes, or use it in various recipes. Mixing Baileys with food or drinks is always a good idea, and here are our favorite combinations.

Baileys Honey Espresso Affogato

Put a teaspoon of stracciatella flavored ice cream in a bowl, top with some chocolate syrup and honey, then repeat. Pour 50 milliliters of Baileys and two shots of espresso over the ice cream. Enjoy!

Baileys Coffee

This simple yet effective recipe is a great way to turn your regular coffee into an exciting drink, perfect for fall afternoons. Simply add a shot of Baileys to your favorite hot coffee. Optionally, you can top the drink with some whipped cream.

Baileys London Fog

Did you know that you can add Baileys to your tea, too? Make London fog, a beverage with Earl Gray tea, milk, and vanilla, and add some Baileys to it.

You can also come up with your own combinations that use Baileys, just remember that it shouldn’t be used with citrus or citric acid, so ingredients like juice and soda are not a good idea.
