It’s gone viral, especially on the Bailey’s Facebook page and now, you can make the Dalgona yourself. It’s quite easy…

Baileys Dalgona Coffee

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 2 servings


60ml milk

60ml Baileys Original Irish Cream

60ml vodka

1 1/2 tbsp instant coffee

1 1/2 tbsp light brown sugar (18 grams)

1 1/2 tbsp hot water


1. Combine milk with Baileys Original Irish Cream and vodka (this should be a 1:1:1 ratio). Divide between 2 serving glasses with ice. Set aside.

2. Add instant coffee, sugar, and hot water to a tall container. Whip using a hand mixer or immersion blender with whisk attachment for 1-2 minutes until it reaches a thick and creamy consistency.

3. Spoon the whipped coffee on top of the milk in the 2 serving glasses. Serve with a straw – it’s best to stir as you go
