I was cooking earlier with coconut milk and the recipe only used 3/4 of the can. I was about to do my usual trick of sticking the leftovers in the fridge only to forget about them to end up throwing them away in a week's time when I remembered that this week's Iron Chef Challenge was for coconut. So, here we have Cheatin' Bailey's - a vegan version of the Irish Whiskey cream liqueur. There's no faffing around making syrups to flavour it with, it comes together in mere minutes.
2 x double shot of coconut milk
Few drops of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of instant coffee
1 teaspoon of powdered drinking chocolate
1 tablespoon of boiling water
1 shot of Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon of agave syrup
Put the coffee and chocolate in a cup. Add the boiling water and stir until dissolved.
Add all of the ingredients including ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake well until chilled.
Serve in a glass tumbler over ice.
PS - the round thing drawn on the glass isn't a slice of orange as it looks in the photo! It's part of a picture of the London skyline around the glass and it's the London Eye. It's part of a lovely set of glasses my mum got me for Christmas the other year. The other skylines are Paris, San Fransisco and New York.
