Step by step method

  • Step 1

    Let's prepare the products. Eggs must be taken fresh and from trusted manufacturers. Condensed milk and coffee (instant) must be of high quality, the taste of the liquor will directly depend on this.

  • Step 2

    Combine the yolks, condensed milk and vanilla in a bowl. Mix with a mixer.

  • Step 3

    Add coffee and continue stirring. If not all coffee granules dissolve during the process, it's okay: they will mix after adding vodka. In extreme cases, you can strain through a sieve.

  • Step 4

    Continuing to mix with a mixer, add cream in a stream, and then alcohol. Beat until the mass becomes homogeneous.

  • Step 5

    We leave the liquor for several hours to infuse.

  • Step 6

    Homemade Baileys can be used to make low-alcohol cocktails, added to desserts and cream cakes, or served as a drink on its own.

Tips & variations

  • Only the Irish could come up with such a magical drink. The combination of alcohol with animal cream, vanilla and coffee delights women.

  • Baileys is a digestif, like all other liqueurs. It is customary to serve it at the end of a meal to help the stomach digest everything eaten faster.

  • Ideally, Baileys is drunk in its pure form - it is very light, only 17%. You can add a couple of ice cubes, but this is a bad habit, as room temperature is the most optimal for this drink.

  • Baileys are traditionally served with desserts that contain creamy and coffee ingredients. The drink goes very well with the Italian delicacy Tiramisu made from savoiardi sticks, mascarpone cheese and espresso - there is also coffee in the liquor recipe.

  • Baileys is the perfect accompaniment to espresso and cappuccino. You can add it directly to coffee instead of sugar, which is very tasty, or just as an accompanying drink in a liquor glass.

  • Baileys goes very well with strawberries and bananas, cream cheese, ice cream and nuts. In general, with desserts and sweet snacks.

  • During meals, liquor is not served, except for fruit salads and some meat dishes in berry or cream sauce. In other cases, it is better to refrain - all liqueurs dominate the taste and do not allow you to fully enjoy the dishes.
