Baileys Iced Coffee is a wonderful treat. It’s a rich, silky beverage with lots of character and the power to stimulate the mind. All you need is a few ingredients: strong cold brew; Baileys; cardamom and vanilla extract.

I enjoyed my first Baileys Iced Coffee during one of my many trips to Jamaica. I saw a tall waiter, with great posture, carrying a tray holding a creamy iced drink. Beads of condensation were cascading from the glass and the contents looked creamy and very cold. It looked so good, and I believe the waiter’s posture added to the allure of the drink. I asked her what was she carrying, and she replied “Baileys Coffee” with a melodic Jamaican lilt to her tone. I clapped with glee and ordered one and she ensured me one was coming soon.

Since then, any time I go on vacay to the Caribbean, after a late night of cocktails and entertainment, I wake up, pick the days swimwear and head off to breakfast. After breakfast, when I am sat down by the pool or near the beach, I order a Baileys Iced Coffee before my dip in the water.

My last trip to Jamaica was in June. I visited Montego Bay and stayed at the RIU Palace Montego Bay, my favorite all-inclusive hotel in Montego Bay. Check out my room. 



Baileys Iced Coffee will not transport you to Jamaica, but it if you’re planning a staycation, perhaps one or two during your time off will give you that sunny, beachy feeling… perhaps!
