When Bailey’s asked me to work with them on a few of their events to launch Coffee Hour, I obviously jumped at the chance! Last week I was at the Felder Felder SS13 show at LFW, as I wrote about here, and this evening I will be attending Fashion for the Brave, a charity fashion event in London hosted by Claudia Winkleman. For more gossip from the event, check back on the blog this weekend.
Bailey’s and coffee are one of those perfect drink combinations in my opinion. Like Gin and Tonic, Rum and Coke… I could go on. When I lived in Spain, we used to spend our lives in Cafe Casino, where their special house coffee was a beautiful Baileys coffee with whipped cream on top. It was amazing to curl up withu p on those cosy, rainy nights in Santiago. Now Baileys are reinventing this simple drink with a couple of fabulous recipes, some of which will be served this evening at the event. I’ve been sent a preview which I would love to share with you guys.
My favourite is Bailey’s Coffee Gold with a touch of honey. It’s the one thing making me want winter to come a bit quicker just so that I have more of an excuse not to go outside!
Baileys Coffee Gold (Each serving contains 0.5 units of alcohol)
- Brew a fresh shot of espresso and combine with hot milk so that you fill a tempered glass 2/3rd of the way.
- Stir in 25ml Baileys with a hint of coffee and 12.5ml artisanal honey.
- Recommend serving in a clear tempered glass or latte glass for a more elegant effect.
