Irish Cream Coffee Recipe

An Irish cream coffee recipe is exactly what you need to complement tonight’s dessert. Especially if you are hosting a little get together, you should contemplate making this recipe since it is a crowd pleaser. You should realize that you can make this hot drink whenever you please. You can make it for a Sunday get together with friends as well as a nice way to close your intimate dinner party with dessert. This recipe is similar to the basic Irish coffee recipe but with a few surprised in store for you, for an excellent taste and a flavor that just hits the spot.

What you need

  • A glass
  • A stirrer
  • A warm spoon
  • some hot water
  • four ounces of freshly brewed coffee
  • two cocktail sugar cubes
  • ¾ ounce of Irish Whiskey
  • ¾ ounce of Bailey’s
  • Sugar (optional)
  • Whipped Cream (preferably homemade)
  • One Maraschino cherry


Once you have gathered your ingredients and tools, you are ready to make this fantastic Irish Cream coffee recipe. You will need to first pre heat the glass. The most efficient and easiest way of going about this, is by pouring the hot water into the glass. Once the glass has been preheated, you can dump the water out. Add the bailey’s and the whiskey into the preheated glass. Mix well. Then slowly and carefully, fill the glass with the four ounces of coffee while stirring well. At this time you can also add in the sugar, if you want your coffee sweetened. You can also sweeten the coffee prior to adding it into the mixture.

Slowly, pour the homemade whip cream over the back of a warm spoon onto the Irish cream coffee mixture. You do not want the whip cream to break the surface of the coffee in this Irish Cream coffee recipe. To finish this recipe, add the Maraschino cherry and you are ready to serve this delicious hot drink.

I wonder how much Bailey’s is used in this recipe.

The directions tell you to “Add the bailey’s and the whiskey”, but Bailey’s is not in the ingredient list. I assume that the Baileys in the directions is a remnant from the Bailey’s Irish Coffee recipe, which was probably used as a template for this recipe. Please correct this.

Corrected. Thanks for pointing it out.

NIce recipe, makes good use of Irish Whiskey as well.
I wonder what it would be like to use a bit of Drumbuie instead of Whiskey. I know it’s an Irish Coffee but I like to think the Scottish liquor would make it so nice :)

Am not a connoisseur of whisky so apart from the name is there any reason why the whisky has to Irish? Surely the coffee hides the taste of the different types anyway.
