Baileys Friendsgiving: The Baileys Frothy Recipe

Baileys Frothy

Good morning, everyone!

It being Wednesday morning and all, I thought I'd help you get through the day (and week) with a super sweet and slightly intoxicating idea: The Baileys Frothy!

I came up with this recipe as part of the Friendsgiving campaign I'm participating in courtesy Baileys. 

This cocktail is the perfect way to kick off a party--inspired by the NYC classic, the Brooklyn Egg Cream, this frothy, sweet, nostalgic soda-fountain favorite is a wonderful way to kick off a festive evening.

Baileys Frothy

1 tablespoon chocolate syrup (u-bet is the best, if you can find it)
2 oz. Baileys, very cold
2 tablespoons milk, very cold
1/2 cup seltzer water (not club soda)

Pour the milk and Baileys in a tall (Collins) glass. Add the seltzer, and stir very gently. Add in the chocolate mixture very slowly, stirring with a tall spoon very gently, so that you disturb the foam as little as possible. You will end up with a 2-toned frothy drink, chocolaty on the bottom and frothy and light on top. 

This recipe contains no more than 0.6 fl. oz. of alcohol per serving. Join Baileys on Facebook for more recipes and inspiration to throw your own.

Sweetly Intoxicating: Christmas Cookie Cocktail Recipes

Everyone knows that the winter holidays are the most intoxicating time of the year.

Wait--that wasn't quite right. What I meant was, the holidays are the best time of the year to get intoxicated. (I mean, let's be honest) And what better way to get toasted--and stay toasty--than with Christmas cookie-inspired cocktails?

Well, Partida tequila was kind enough to send on the SpyStaff some tasty tequila samples (also officially marking the first time we've ever received a fedex parcel fulla tequila) and recipes--and here are our two favorites for you to (*hic!*) enjoy.
