Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!! I came across this recipe and wanted to make it, but when my sister asked me to bring Baileys over for her birthday celebration I jumped at the opportunity to give this recipe a try.
I used a mixture of coconut milk, almond milk, strong organic coffee and palm sugar with Irish Whiskey. It is really amazing and tastes exactly like Baileys. I adapted the recipe slightly by using coconut sugar, some almond milk, and a little vanilla powder for some depth. Seriously, give this recipe a try, you won't be disappointed.
