Bundaberg Rum & Baileys Irish Cream
Need a refreshing summer pick me up? We're loving this iced coffee that you can have as-is—or add a little pick me up to it! It blends up great with Australian Bundaberg Rum and Baileys. To make the iced coffee: dissolve a heaped teaspoon and a half of instant coffee and 1 tsp brown sugar in about 3 tbsp of hot water. Pour in 3/4 C cold 2% milk and chill; this is your iced coffee base. When you're ready to serve, fill a Collins glass with ice and add ¾ oz of Baileys Irish Cream and ½ oz of Bunderberg Rum. Stir in your iced coffee base and—if you're feeling decadent, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and a shake of cocoa powder. Serve with a long handled spoon to enjoy intensely & immensely. Alternatively you can use Appleton’s Rum.
