Irish Coffee with Baileys Coconut Whipped Cream

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and I’m super excited! My homemade corned beef is corning/curing/marinating in the fridge right now and I can’t wait to get it cooking on Monday! If it all turns out, I’ll share the recipe. Who says corned beef is just for St. Patrick’s Day?

Since St. Patty’s Day is on a Monday this year, I doubt the husband and I will go out but that doesn’t mean we won’t have a couple Irish inspired beverages to celebrate with our dinner. I found TONS of recipes on Pinterest for green drinks and green dinner recipes for the family, so I decided to skip that and go a more traditional route for this week’s blog. I love coffee and I do have a special place in my heart for Jameson whiskey so I thought an Irish coffee would be delicious. If you’re having this as a little night cap for St. Patrick’s Day, I’d use decaf coffee so you aren’t up all night. For a non-alcoholic treat for you or your toddler, try my Peppermint Hot Chocolate and switch the peppermint extract with mint extract.

Irish Coffee with Bailey’s Coconut WhipPED Cream

-8 oz fresh brewed coffee

-1 oz Jameson or favorite Irish Whiskey

-½ cup canned coconut milk

-½ oz Baileys or favorite Irish Cream or liquor

-honey to taste

Brew your favorite coffee and add it to a clear, glass coffee mug (not required, but it looks nice :-)) with the shot (1 oz) of Jameson and honey, if using. Take the ½ cup of coconut milk and whip together with the ½ oz of Baileys in a small bowl until it becomes whipped cream or light and frothy. I’m more of a fan of frothy milk than whip cream, so I didn’t whip the coconut milk as much. When the coconut milk cream is whipped to your liking, add the cream to your cup of coffee.

Do you have any St. Patrick’s Day traditions you do with your toddler or family? Corned beef and cabbage is always a staple in our house but I’m always looking for more delicious recipes!

Stay lucky,
