Irish Coffee with Baileys Recipe (Elixir Mixer Version)

What is an Irish Coffee with Baileys?

Irish Coffee with Baileys is a creamy and comforting coffee cocktail that combines the rich warmth of coffee with the smooth sweetness of Baileys Irish Cream. It's a classic drink perfect for chilly evenings or as a luxurious after-dinner treat.

Make Any Drink With The Elixer Mixer 


  • 6 oz hot, freshly brewed coffee
  • 1.5 oz Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 oz Irish whiskey
  • Optional: Whipped cream for topping
  • Optional: A sprinkle of cocoa powder or ground nutmeg for garnish


  1. Brew your coffee as you normally would. Ensure it's hot, but not too hot for the Elixir Mixer.
  2. Pour the hot coffee into the Elixir Mixer.
  3. Add the Baileys Irish Cream and Irish whiskey to the coffee.
  4. Secure the lid of your Elixir Mixer, ensuring it's tightly closed. Leave the flip cap open to allow steam to escape.
  5. Activate the Elixir Mixer and whisk the mixture for about 15 seconds, ensuring everything is well combined and slightly frothy.
  6. Pour the Irish Coffee into a mug or sip out of your Elixir Mixer directly!
  7. If desired, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cocoa powder or nutmeg.
  8. Enjoy the warm, creamy, and slightly indulgent flavors of your Irish Coffee with Baileys!


Can I make this drink non-alcoholic?

Yes, simply omit the Irish whiskey and use non-alcoholic Baileys-flavored coffee creamer.

Why add whiskey to Irish coffee?

Irish whiskey adds a depth of flavor and a touch of warmth, making the drink more complex and enjoyable.

How hot should the coffee be?

It should be hot enough to enjoy immediately but not so hot that it damages the Elixir Mixer. A good rule of thumb is less than 176°F.

Can I use any type of coffee?

Absolutely! Feel free to use your favorite coffee - whether it's a dark roast, espresso, or even decaf.

How can I make a dairy-free version?

Use a dairy-free Baileys alternative and top with coconut or almond-based whipped cream.
