I love Baileys, so knew I would enjoy this drink. I made it using freshly strong brewed coffee, didn't use the optional whiskey, but otherwise followed as written. Have to agree with kiwidutch, no need for the added honey, made it a little too sweet for me. This is definitely a smooth yummy drink. Thanks for sharing. Made for 123 Tag.
I made this one for DH... he says: the whisky SHOULDN'T be optional !! I used a better whisky than JW for the purist: Tullimore Dew and the coffee was a shot of a good strong Dutch brew, so an excellent pick me up after dinner. I did add more whisky than stated ( a double) because a tablespoon is not nearly enough of the good stuff and because our coffee was stronger. The Baileys was a nice addition and all of this worked well together, DH said however that I could easily skip the honey next time, the Baileys makes this sweet enough. Please see my Rating System: 4 yummy stars for an easy to make and one that I will treat DH to every now and again as a change from his usual way of enjoying a wee dram. Thanks!
Not much to say about this but YUM! I used only Baileys as that was strong enough for me. I will definately make this again! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
