Smooth and creamy Whisky coffee liquor. Tempting solo on the rocks or enjoyed hot, stirred into a cup of coffee. It’s the time of the year, isn’t it? I’m not suggesting in the slightest that this “Baileys” version cannot be enjoyed throughout the year, but following the seasonal offers in our supermarkets, it seems to increase in popularity around the colder winter months. Specially around Christmas.
Moreover, if you enjoy giving home-made presents for Christmas, this is a really good one! Well, for +18 years youngs (or +21 years, depending on which beautiful place in the world you live in. Please follow your country’s legislation). You can get a beautiful bottle and get your Christmas present ready in probably 5 minutes. Sounds good to me!
All you need is….. love 🎶 – and this:
- 250ml non-daily milk (I prefer coconut, cashew, almond, or hazelnut) If you prefer a thicker, creamier version you can use non-daily cream (soy or oat)
- 125ml Whisky
- 3 Tbsp Agave nectar
- 2gr instant espresso or 1 espresso stick (Anything but Nescafé please!)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
I’d suggest you use a large jug for the this recipe.
Pour the Whisky into the jug and then add the instant expresso granules. Stir until its fully dissolved. Then add all other ingredients and stir until everything is well mixed.
Now, to ensure it’s tasty enough to give it away as a present, you may want to try. Pour yourself a small glass (or more ;)) and give it a try.
How is it?
I’d love to know what you think! Please leave us your comments below.
Thinking out aloud here, you may want to try some variations to this ‘basic’ recipe.
What about hazelnut, mint, vanilla, or salted caramel?
It’s probably quite easy to add a tsp of salted caramel, vanilla or hazelnut flavouring, or a few drops of peppermint essential oil.
If you give this a go, please share with us how it turned out 🙂
Keeping it cool
As this liquor s mainy bases on non-daily milk or cream, don’t forget to keep it cool after preparation. Keep it in the fridge for max 7 days.
It should last the same amount of time as the original non-daily milk or cream. Obviously, the fresher it is, the better! As you can see from the recipe though, it’s a small portion anyway. It wouldn’t last 7 days in my fridge 🙂
