Friday Find: DIY




If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have already seen this. But after trying it for myself I can tell you with certainty it's as delicious as it looks.  Baileys Irish Cream with coffee ice cubes = genius!  I've always used my melting ice as a sign I needed to drink faster... but no more!  Just freeze any coffee in an ice cube tray (evidenced by the pic above I recommend having a dedicated coffee ice cube tray).  Next, throw a few coffee cubes in a glass of Baileys (imitation Baileys will not do).  And the last and most important step is enjoying as each sip gets better and better...

And yes I'm counting it as a DIY since I made the coffee :)

I love baileys so much! It's seriously one of my favorite drinks ever. Do you think I can make those ice cubes with chocolate instead of coffee? I think they'd taste delicious :p

poziomka said...

It's a great idea, but I wouldn't like it.
