These boozy recipes have just made this a trend worth trying—plus it’s super easy to make!
Whipped coffee or “Dalgona coffee” is a lockdown trend worth dipping into, at least now that Baileys has entered the picture. The sweet, fluffy delight is the dollop of happiness that everyone in isolation deserves right now.
The hype seems to have originated in South Korea after actor Jung Il-woo had discovered the drink on a trip to Macau. Its foamy top resembled the spongey Dalgona candy and was dubbed Macau Dalgona coffee. It became a lockdown hit thanks to accounts like @imhannahcho on TikTok, where her tutorial has around 2 million views. While this may seem similar to fancy caffeinated inventions from a coffee shop, the main draw is its simplicity and use of ingredients you probably have in your kitchen cupboard.
To make the standard TikTok version you take instant coffee, sugar, warm water and whip it up until your arm goes numb, then you add it to a glass of hot or cold milk. Then this happened.
Peanut Butter and Fitness came along and elevated the concept with the addition of vodka and Baileys. And if that wasn’t enough, Jessica Hirsch followed that up with a version featuring Bailys Red Velvet.
If you’re out of coffee and booze (or just a Nesquick junkie) then you can try this whipped strawberry milk version by Valentina Mussi—which looks like pure heaven! You’ll only need 1 tbsp of Strawberry Nesquik and 4 tbsp of heavy whipping cream, some milk and ice.
Enjoy responsibly—as in no Nesquick induced diabetes attacks.
