Cold Mudslide Cocktail with Ice

Flavored with cream, cocoa, and Irish whiskey, Baileys is a delicious addition to a range of boozy beverages. 

You can mix it into a martini, blend it into Irish coffee, add a dash to hot chocolate, or just enjoy a classic white Russian.

It’s fun to play around with the popular liquor too – making mudslides, jello shots, and adult-only milkshakes.

So grab a bottle and unleash your inner bartender. You’re about to become a Baileys cocktail connoisseur!

1. Baileys Martini 

This isn’t a martini, it’s a dreamy sundae in a glass.

Vodka, Baileys, and creme de cocoa are shaken together and poured into a tall glass. Then comes the good part. 

You’ll finish off this irresistible treat by drizzling over thick chocolate sauce, topping with fluffy clouds of whipped cream, and dusting everything with chocolate sprinkles – perfection!

2. Baileys White Russian 

I like to make this classic cocktail with an Irish twist on St Patrick’s Day.

Whatever the occasion, you’ll fall in love with the flavor combination of creamy Baileys, dark espresso, vodka, and caramel spirit.

If you want to sweeten things up a little more, decorate the glass with caramel syrup and top with crushed cookie crumbs.

3. Baileys Irish Coffee

The perfect after-supper treat, this boozy coffee will round off your meal nicely.

It’s made with freshly brewed dark coffee, brown sugar, and Baileys.

No Irish coffee is complete without a tower of whipped cream on top, of course, and don’t forget the cinnamon sprinkles!

4. Baileys Hot Chocolate

Ready in 5 minutes, this gorgeously rich hot chocolate is just the thing when neighbors drop by on chilly evenings.

It’s made with real chocolate, giving it delicious depth and intense flavor.

And you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now – milk, chocolate, cocoa powder, sugar, and Baileys.

Simply whisk everything together over a low heat until it turns warm, frothy, and utterly magical.

5. Baileys Jell-O Shots

Jell-O shots aren’t just for college parties. These sophisticated Baileys shots are a fun and elegant way to liven up your next Christmas party.

They’re made by layering espresso with Baileys to form a two-toned square.

Decorate them with a swirl of whipped cream and finish with chocolate sprinkles for a cocktail that looks (and tastes!) like dessert.

6. Baileys Float

Adult life is hard, so sometimes, it’s okay to cut loose with drinks for dessert.

This Baileys float is the best cure for a bad day. It’s a magical mash-up of Baileys, coffee, and ice cream.

The magic comes when the chocolate ice cream melts into the hot coffee.

If that’s not enough temptation, pile on some more chocolate syrup and top with a cherry or your favorite sprinkles.

7. Baileys Mudslide

A mudslide is a dark, creamy cocktail, made with Kahlua for a rich kick.

This version swirls together Baileys, vodka, and Kahlua in an easy-to-remember 1:1 ratio. It’s perfect for parties, as you can effortlessly scale up as needed. 

Stir well and drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving.

This sweet treat is best poured over ice and enjoyed with friends, family, and people you’d like to get to know better.

8. Baileys Snickertini

This genius creation stuffs all the chocolate caramel sweetness of a Snickers bar into a martini glass. And it really works.

More dessert than a drink, it’s adult candy in booze form.

Use caramel-flavored Baileys if you want to double down on the caramel taste, and garnish with mini-Snickers speared on a cocktail stick.

9. Buttery Finger Cocktail

Candy-inspired cocktails are a definite crowd-pleaser, so this Butterfinger-style recipe is a great one to try at your next party.

Made with butterscotch schnapps with Baileys, Kahlua, and vodka, it’s strong and creamy – almost like a caramel latte. 

10. Baileys Iced Coffee Cocktail

Holiday coffees are one of the best things about the festive season.

Skip the line at Starbucks and make your own with this amazing recipe.

Made with freshly brewed coffee, Baileys, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce, it’s a must for both caffeine addicts and cocktail fans.

11. Baileys Cookies and Cream Milkshake

Keep the kids away, this milkshake is adults-only! 

Generously spiked with Baileys, it’s the cookies and cream smoothie of your dreams. 

And it’s dangerously easy to make.

Just dump Baileys, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate cookies into a blender and process until gorgeously thick and smooth.

12. Baileys Mint Martini

Made with creme de menthe and Baileys, this minty martini is ideal for St. Patrick’s Day (or any time you want to toast the Irish).

Bright green, this is an eye-catching cocktail that tingles the tastebuds.

13. Jack Knife Cocktail

There are just two ingredients in this punchy cocktail – Jack Daniels and Baileys.

This is a powerful drink that’ll warm you up on winter evenings and help you unwind after a busy day.

14. Baileys Caramel Apple Cocktail

Baileys isn’t commonly teamed up with fruity flavors, but this unique recipe shows it can be done, and it can be delicious.

This creative cocktail is a blend of apple cider, caramel-flavored Baileys, and warming spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

Spicy, sweet, and fruity, this is my new favorite drink.

15. Santa’s Magic Potion

After a long night of reindeer-wrangling, Santa loves nothing more than settling down with this dessert-like drink.

A creamy mix of eggnog and Baileys, it’s slightly sweet and slightly spicy.

The heady taste comes from nutmeg and cinnamon while the rich, velvety texture comes from all that dairy deliciousness.

If it’s good enough for Santa, it’s definitely good enough for your next Christmas cocktail party!

16. Baileys Frozen Mochaccino

It’s hard to categorize this decadent mochaccino. Is it coffee? Is it ice cream? Is it a slushie? Is it a cocktail?

In the end, it doesn’t matter, because it’s just delicious. You can’t go wrong mixing Baileys with coffee, sugar, chocolate chips, and cream. 

There’s a little bit of prep involved with this one. You’ll need to freeze the mixture for at least 8 hours to get its thick, icy consistency.

Start it at breakfast and you’ll be set for your after-dinner treat!

17. Baileys Shaken Espresso Cocktail

This dreamy cocktail will leave you shaken and stirred.

Made with just four ingredients – Baileys, coffee, cream, and vanilla – it’s an easy but impressive cocktail.

Shake it up over ice, pour into a tall glass, then get sipping!

18. Baileys Red Velvet Shots

These shots taste like tiny little parcels of boozy, red velvet cake.

They’re made with Baileys Red Velvet, vodka, cream, and sugar.

You can also mix things up by replacing plain vodka with vanilla vodka for a creamier flavor.

Beautifully pastel pink, these scrumptious shots are great for Valentine’s Day or any time you need to treat that special someone.

19. Baileys Pumpkin Spice Cocktail

Add the perfect finishing touch to your Thanksgiving table with this smooth and spicy cocktail.

Bursting with rich fall flavors, they’re made with Baileys pumpkin spice liqueur, cinnamon, and caramel syrup.

This irresistible recipe is pumpkin pie in a glass. Except better, because everything’s better with Baileys.

20. Peppermint Baileys Christmas Cocktail

Santa would very much approve of this dreamy drink (delivering presents is thirsty work!).

It’s a luscious blend of Baileys and peppermint vodka, served over ice with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. 

Rich, minty, and oh-so-good, this is the best reward for all that stocking stuffing.
