Christmas morning gets off to a fine start with some fresh coffee with a healthy shot of Bailey’s. It’s the only way to get through the day! This year I bought some orange truffle Bailey’s – a new one to me. But it’s a big bottle, and it doesn’t stay good forever, so I was thinking up a few different ways to use it up over the Festive period. Cocktails seemed like a good start.
Boozy hot chocolate
Inspired by this recipe for White Ape I added a healthy shot of Bailey’s to hot chocolate, sprinkled in a little cinnamon, and whisked. Because I didn’t use cream, I used more hot chocolate than Bailey’s, making it a bit more palatable.
This was another recipe found online. I happened to have some Cointreau lying around too, so this recipe was a good way to use up both bottles. I thought it was a bit strong, so added a larger proportion of Bailey’s.
Pour both ingredients over cracked ice in an old-fashioned glass, and serve.
