Try a Bailey’s Iced Coffee After Dinner Drink for a new take on a classic combination. A large, frozen coffee cube slowly infuses into your chilled Bailey’s liqueur – it’s a sip and savor, two ingredient cocktail you will love! Perfect for holiday entertaining.
The Bailey’s Iced Coffee After Dinner Drink:
Since the Bailey’s Iced Coffee After Dinner Drink has only two ingredients, coffee and Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, it couldn’t be easier. It’s what you do with the coffee that makes the drink special. You’ll freeze the coffee into large “coffee cubes”, and then pour the Bailey’s over the cube! The presentation is dramatic and the drink is delicious. Serve your guests a Bailey’s Iced Coffee at your next dinner party, or for the holidays!
The tasting notes from Bailey’s website describe the flavor as “the perfect marriage of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey and a unique chocolate blend”. The coffee cube pairs beautifully with all these flavors, the flavor is very much like a grown-up iced mocha!
I like to use a large cube tray for the coffee cubes for two reasons. First, the large coffee cubes will melt slowly into the Bailey’s and create the best sipping drink. Second, the cubes look beautiful! The contrast between the caramel color of the Bailey’s and the darker coffee color of the cubes make a very pretty drink.
Next you’ll pour the chilled, brewed coffee (I make the coffee extra strong) into the silicon ice cube tray and freeze overnight. The cubes are easy to get out of the molds too. If you run the bottom of the mold under warm water, then give the tray a little twist, and you should be able to pop the cubes out by pressing on the bottom of the mold.
The Bailey’s Iced Coffee After Dinner Drink is a great drink for entertaining and for the holidays. Once you have the coffee cubes ready to go in your freezer, you are set for your no fuss after dinner drinks. Simply take out your lowball glasses, but a coffee cube in each one, and pour about a 1/2 cup of Bailey’s on top. Your guests will be impressed and everyone will love the festive, and delicious, cocktail!
For a fun food gift, you can make a basket with a bottle of Bailey’s, the silicon large ice cube trays, and a pound of coffee. If you really like the person, you could also include some pretty lowball glasses!Print
