17 Baileys Christmas Cocktails (Easy Holiday Drinks)

Get into the holiday spirit with these Baileys Christmas cocktails!

For those seeking a little extra merriment this season, good old Baileys will be there. 

This Irish cream liqueur is a holiday classic. It’s fun, festive, and great for so many spirited libations.

Use it to create something special like Santa’s magic potion or a gingerbread martini.

I love it for doctoring up classics like a white Russian as well as whimsical creations like a drunken snowman.

Creamy, sweet, and decadent, it’s the perfect liqueur to indulge in this season.

Whether you’re joining in on festivities or need a relaxing sipper, these Baileys Christmas cocktails will bring joy your way.

1. Santa’s Magic Potion

What’s in Santa’s magic potion? Eggnog and Bailey’s!

It looks like the North Pole and tastes like you’d imagine it, too.

It’s sweet, creamy, slightly chocolatey, and spiced to make it taste extra nice.

Speaking of nice, if you make Santa’s nice, list he might give you two.

2. Peppermint Baileys Christmas Cocktail

Peppermint vodka and chocolatey Baileys are all you need to make a fantastic Christmas cocktail.

Simple, refreshing, and sweet, this libation is a 5-minute process, making it dangerously easy.

It’s akin to a peppermint Patty. However, I think it’s even better because you get to drink it with a splash of booze.

From tree trimming to Christmas caroling, it’s a fun one to have with all your holiday activities.

3. Christmas Alexander

Brandy Alexander is a classic cocktail featuring brandy, creme de cacao, and single cream. 

So it’s a perfect choice for the holidays. 

Add a hint of vanilla and a long pour of Baileys to make it more festive and merry. 

It’s great as an after-dinner treat and for elegant gatherings alike.

4. Drunken Snowman

Dreaming of a white Christmas that’s oh-so-jolly? You need a drunken snowman. 

This dangerously decadent dessert cocktail combines two of the best sweets: hot chocolate and ice cream.

Add two scoops of vanilla ice cream to a mug, then, pour hot chocolate and a shot of Baileys over the top.

Lastly, finish it off with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Whether it’s 9 degrees or 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside, this tipsy treat tastes just right. 

5. St. Nick Special Cocktail

Clink, clink. Do you hear that? Old St. Nick is cheers-ing his glass!

And lucky for you, his elves are passing his favorite drink around.

It’s a tall mug of freshly brewed hot coffee spiked with Baileys and whiskey with crushed peppermint, marshmallows, and whipped cream.

For an extra special touch, hot fudge rims the glass!

6. Baileys Candy Cane Cocktail

What could be more festive than chocolate and candy canes?!

This sweet treat tastes like liquid candy in a martini glass. 

It has Baileys, creme de cacao, and creme de menthe.

Meanwhile, the glass is rimmed with crushed candy canes and dark chocolate. 

All it needs now is a sprinkle of chocolate shavings. 

7. Baileys Mint Martini

This stunning holiday cocktail strikes up quite the conversation. 

Creme de menthe and half-n-half give it a refreshingly cool green color while Baileys makes it extra indulgent. 

Add a shot of vodka to give it a kick and top it with whipped cream.  

Whether it’s Christmas, St. Patty’s Day, or another holiday, this one is not to be missed!

8. Baileys Chocolate Martini

Chocolate lovers, brace yourself for one of the best chocolate cocktails you’ll ever taste.

I know that’s a bold thing to say, but this is one bold cocktail!

Between the chocolate liqueur, Baileys, and chocolate shavings, it’s dripping with chocolate.

Then it ups the ante with a shot of vodka. 

Although it calls for regular vodka, I think a flavor like vanilla, marshmallow, cake, or even chocolate would go great.

9. Gingerbread Martini

Throwing a classy Christmas soiree? Bust out the martini glasses and pour everyone a round of the gingerbread. 

Gingerbread syrup makes it taste just like a cookie.

Meanwhile, Baileys, vodka, and heavy cream make it boozy and velvety. 

Watch out, a few rounds of these and you’ll need Santa’s sleigh to give you a ride home.

10. Skrewball and Baileys Sugar Cookie Cocktail

A sugar cookie cocktail? Sign me up!

This brilliant concoction takes a classic Christmas cookie and turns it into an adult beverage very fitting for the holiday. 

It’s super creamy, sugary, and cinnamon.

It’s also a bit heavy-handed thanks to the vodka, peanut butter whiskey, and Baileys.

Even Scrooge himself will get into the Christmas spirit with this one!

11. Baileys Hot Chocolate

Here’s a boozy hot chocolate to keep you warm all holiday season long!

Be forewarned, though, this decadent delight is sinfully good and far too easy to make.

You only need two ingredients and your topping of choice. 

I like to pile on the whipped cream with red and green sprinkles.

Although, sometimes mini marshmallows sound really nice.

12. Boozy Christmas Coffee

No matter the time of day, this is how you do boozy coffee right. 

You combine vanilla cinnamon Baileys with hot coffee and finish it off with festive toppings.

Christmas is a special day that many of us wait for all year.

So no judging here if you want to spike your morning java with a little Christmas cheer.

13. Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake Chocolate Martini

Good tidings! Red velvet isn’t just for Valentine’s day, it’s for Christmas too. 

This dazzling crimson delight tastes remarkably like red velvet cake. And it’s so easy to make!

You combine Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake with vanilla vodka and chocolate liqueur in a shaker.

Then, pour it into a chocolate-rimmed martini glass.

14. Baileys White Russian

While you’re trimming the tree this season, help yourself to a cold glass of Baileys White Russian. 

This creamy sipper combines the standard ingredients of vodka and Kaluha with Baileys and milk. 

For the non-skinny version, go with heavy cream. 

This is one finely crafted cocktail, indeed!

15. Baileys Apple Pie Cocktail

If you’re looking for a new signature dessert cocktail to serve this holiday season, look no further than this liquid pie. 

It has all the flavors of apple pie bundled up in a Collins glass. 

Creamy, nutty, fruity, and cinnamony, this apple pie cocktail doesn’t skimp on the sweets or the booze. 

If you like your pie a la mode, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, too.

16. Pumpkin Spice Martini

If you can only get one last pumpkin drink in until it’s back in season, make it a pumpkin spice martini.

Like all things pumpkin, it calls for pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. 

All you need now is a splash of heavy cream, a shot of vodka, and a double pour of Baileys. 

To make it a skinny martini, skip the cream. Either way, it’s exquisite!

17. Baileys Espresso Martini

Looking for a sipper to serve after your big Christmas dinner? You need this Baileys espresso martini recipe.

Strong espresso, stiff vodka, coffee liqueur, and creamy Baileys come together for this ravishing martini.

Top it with a touch of cinnamon or leave it garnish-free.

This martini is the perfect way to finish off the holiday and wish everyone a good night.
