Cheatin' Bailey's

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.

Serves 1
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.


  1. That is such a good idea. Thanks. :)

  2. What a clever thing to do! Looks delish!

  3. That drink looks amazing! And your glasses are cute.

  4. Seconded - a very clever idea. Now I just need to find an excuse to open a can of coconut milk!

  5. Yum! I always have the same problem with coconut milk. Your vegan Baileys looks like an amazing solution.

  6. Bookmarked! For when I'm no longer pregnant ;)

  7. Those glasses are great! And this drink looks and sounds really good!

  8. Brilliant recipe and beautiful glasses! I'm a sucker for sets like that.

  9. That sounds good. I'd only ever had bailey's (before becoming vegan) in a drink called a slippery nipple. It was baileys and butterscotch schnapps. Might have to give this a try.

  10. I had to laugh because I do the exact same thing with excess coconut milk, it's such a waste but now I can do this each time that happens! A friend and I always used to drink Baileys but of course once I was vegan I had to stop so she'll be pleased we can from now on!

  11. Yum, I'll have to remember this next time I want Baileys at Christmas time. I love your glasses too.

  12. Some love for:

    1. Your use of leftover coconut milk (I'm always wasting it also)
    2. Our mutual enjoyment of tea (I'm sometimes embarrassed by my collection of tea gadgets)
    3. A great blog.
