A Coffee and Baileys Cocktail Recipe

A Coffee and Baileys Cocktail Recipe

There’s something about Christmas that screams cocktails to me. It must be all the parties and nights out. Of course, you don’t have to limit your cocktail consumption to Christmas and this cocktail is perfect for any time of the year. I really enjoy this one in the evenings at home and it’s a wonderful one for entertaining too because you can make it in a bigger batch and you don’t need to worry about cocktail shakers and the like! It has plenty of alcoholic punch though so be warned – don’t drink a whole jug of the stuff!

I’m a huge coffee drinker and this year I was lucky enough to work with Gourmesso lately and they sent me some lovely coffee capsules of Gourmesso and they are perfect in this recipe. I love these coffee pods as they are so easy to use and come in so many different varieties. The other day I was looking for coffee inspired cocktail recipes and found this one on BBC Food and changed the ingredients a little to make this one a little less rich and creamy as it uses milk instead of cream. For me a cocktail has to taste nice, and not too strongly of alcohol and this ticks those boxes. It’s lovely and warming for those winter nights too.

This recipe makes 4 cocktails but of course you can just adjust the measurements to make as many as you like. If it was just me I’d make half to enjoy in the evening but I might make double for a party. Just adjust the quantities as you see fit.

I think I’ll be enjoying mine this year with my Christmas pudding in the evening in front of a good Christmas film! I’m really looking forward to enjoying some downtime this Christmas as life has been so busy lately. What is better than enjoying a lovely drink and snack, cuddled with your loved ones in front of the TV with the Christmas tree in the background! I wish I could transport myself in time now!
