Baileys Irish Coffee Recipe


The Irish Coffee cocktail is an easy to make coffee-booze combo of Irish whiskey (such as Baileys) with hot, black coffee, and topped off with cold whipped cream.


  • 6 oz of hot coffee (or 2 shots of espresso diluted with hot water)
  • 1.5 oz of Irish whiskey (ex. Baileys Irish Cream or Jameson)
  • 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
  • 1 oz whipped cream
  • Pour whiskey, coffee and sugar in a mug or glass
  • Stir well until sugar is fully dissolved.
  • Float whipped cream on top. Don’t stir.
  • That’s it! Drink the coffee through layer of cream.

You can also make an Irish Coffee with an espresso machine by simply diluting the espresso with hot water.
