Baileys Milk is an easy two-ingredient alcoholic drink that is simple and refreshing. All you need is Baileys Irish Cream and milk. Fill a glass with ice, and pour in the Baileys and milk. Mix and serve.
Never had Baileys Irish Cream? It’s a 17% Alc/Vol liqueur that is a mixture of Irish whiskey and cream. Other ways this Irish Cream whiskey is often served include on its own over ice, or mixed straight into your cup of java.
Recently, my husband and I took a trip to Cancun and we had the opportunity to fly first class (thank you credit card points). As a perk of first class flying, we enjoyed complimentary alcoholic beverages served in real glasses. We had an early morning flight, and I was not in the mood for mimosas or my favorite drink, the Cape Codder (Cranberry and Vodka).
The Creation of Baileys Milk
Baileys on the rocks is a little too strong for my taste, so on a whim I asked for some milk to mix with the Baileys. Low and behold, this became an instant favorite. The milk sweetens up the flavor of the Irish whiskey, and the cold mixture goes down smooth. I liked it so much that I bought a bottle of Baileys to enjoy this drink at home.
Need a perfect cocktail for breakfast or brunch to go alongside a Peach Bellini or a Hawaiian Pineapple Mimosa? Try serving this Baileys Milk with our Make Ahead Ham and Cheese Quiche, Amaretto French Toast, Honey Bun Coffee Cake, or Mom’s Poppy Seed Bread.
Serve this unique cocktail in a glass that matches your table setting. We love using pint mason jars and fun paper straws to serve our guests.
What Kind of Milk to Use in Baileys and Milk
- Use any type of milk – whole, 2 percent, 1 percent or skim.
- Have lactose issues? Use almond or soy milk.
- Or for an extra creamy, decadent treat, try using heavy cream or half and half.
Any of these options are delicious.
