Easy Baileys Cocktail Recipe

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). 

What To Mix with Baileys Irish Cream: 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.

I was actually on a flight to Mexico when this inspiration hit.  When on an airplane, there’s only so many options available as mixers from the flight attendants.  Lucky for me, this Baileys and Milk creation is a home-run.

Since then, I’ve even taken it up a notch with this Cinnamon Toast Crunch cocktail. I’ve also substituted chocolate milk with great success. Check out this Chocolate Baileys Drink!
