Our Coffee Baileys recipe is super simple, but also super delicious for the winter time if you want to enjoy a coffee with alcohol after dinner, or are looking for an alternative to the mulled wine at the Christmas market.

The Baileys goes perfectly with coffee drinks that are prepared with milk and the Baileys gives the drink an additional, creamy note.

Our Baileys coffee recipe is very easy to prepare, you do it in exactly the same way as when you make a cappuccino:

Ingredients coffee Baileys recipe

  • an espresso, 20-25g depending on the brewing recipe
  • Milk 150-200mL depending on glass size
  • Baileys 2-4cl depending on taste

Preparation of coffee Baileys

  1. Measure out Baileys and place in a milk pitcher
  2. Add the amount of milk

  5. Now fill the cup with the milk
  6. Decorate, ideally with latte art, and enjoy! 😁

Optional Baileys cold coffee

The Baileys coffee is also great to enjoy as a cold variation! Check out the following recipe for Cappuccino al Freddo.


  • Place ice cubes, Baileys and milk in a cocktail glass
  • Stir briefly with a spoon to allow the milk to cool and mix with the Baileys
  • extract the espresso directly into the glass for a great optical layering!
