While you might only drink a splash of Baileys once a year on Saint Patrick’s Day, the creamy drink is actually so easy to make you could feasibly always have a jar of it in your fridge. Although, you’ll want to save this particular creamer for a morning when you have time to get a little buzzed. You ready? Put on a pot of coffee and pull out the blender.
Start with a hefty pour of Irish whiskey in a blender, then stream in sweetened condensed milk, nondairy creamer (regular cream or half-and-half will also work), hot cocoa mix, instant coffee powder, and a bit of vanilla extract. Cover the beaker with a lid and blend the mixture well. Fill a mug with coffee, pour in the Baileys, and relax. Your morning is about to be very chill.
