Baileys. The lovely Irish cream you don’t think about until the winter months hit. That’s what happened to me. It wasn’t until a few of my pals sat with their special coffees that I felt like I was missing out.

Coffee and Baileys is a classic winter drink that will warm your insides on cold afternoon.  I like to use a nice espresso or an espresso roast (drip coffee) so that the alcohol does not overwhelm the coffee flavor too much.

Once I was able to break down exactly what made Baileys so special, it was a no-brainer. I knew exactly what plant based ingredients I could use, to make it taste almost identical, or if I may be so bold—maybe even better than the original.
