Boozy Christmas Coffee is a great way to entertain guests for the Holidays. Using Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon Irish Cream is what makes this drink a delicious way to celebrate.
Many of you would agree that there is almost nothing better than to come inside after being out in the cold December weather to a nice warm beverage.
Though many of us depend on our morning cup of jo to get a boost for the day’s events, this recipe gives you a good reason to cozy up by the fireplace at the day’s end.
This Boozy Christmas Coffee incorporates flavors that are hallmarks of Christmastime like cinnamon and vanilla.
As a delicious addition to your drink menu, this recipe is a great way to either celebrate the holiday season solo or with your adult family and friends.
If you know me well, you know that some of my most favorite recipes are those punctuated by their ease and speed. This recipe definitely qualifies for that list as another terrific “dump and go” staple.
This speed is also made possible by the vanilla cinnamon Irish cream that makes adding all the most festive flavors a one-step job!
When combined with your favorite coffee, the richness of the mixer is balanced by the smoothness of the coffee.
The quick preparation time makes this recipe a great option for serving drinks while entertaining. It is a great way to minimize your time in the kitchen and allow you to enjoy the conversation.
Topping with whipped cream and festive sprinkles do the trick to bring the holiday cheer. However, many love the versatility of this recipe, as making it as a cocktail can be a great way to mix it up.
Here are some commonly asked questions
How can I make this into a cocktail?
Just add the coffee and Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon Irish Cream to a shaker with ice. Shake it well and strain into a glass to be served with whipped cream and sprinkles as a garnish.
Can I use a different flavor mixer?
Though it would be considered a different recipe, you can customize these instructions by adding a mixer of your choosing.
To keep that festive vibe going, I recommend trying my Candy Cane Vodka recipe to add a bit of peppermint.
Can I use leftover/iced coffee for this recipe?
Yes. This may be a good way to prepare for guests ahead of time to remove the brewing process from your drink prep. You may want to rewarm the coffee before serving to keep that cozy feeling.

Best Christmas Cocktails
Can I substitute the whipped cream for whipped topping?
It is not recommended to substitute whipped cream for whipped topping as the former is made with oil and the latter is made with cream. This will be a noticeable difference when added to a drink.
What glass should I use with this drink?
This is the one drink recipe where it is perfectly acceptable to serve in a glass mug!
No need to break out the fancy glassware here. This may be the best option for serving due to the heat of the drink.
