  • 8 ounces water
  • 1 teaspoon Fake Coffee If you find yourself without Fake Coffee, chicory can be purchased in most stores as an alternative.
  • 2 ounces Bailey's Irish Cream


  • Boil water and remove from heat.
  • Start the steeping process by adding the Fake Coffee to it. You can always increase the amount of Fake Coffee depending on how strong you prefer your cup of tea.
  • Steep for no longer than two minutes.
  • Strain through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a pot.
  • Put Bailey's in your favorite coffee mug.
  • Add your steeped Fake Coffee, stir, and enjoy - or, if you prefer, shake with ice and pour into a tumbler.



If you’re looking to make a bigger batch for entertaining friends at home, I recommend using the cold brew method for brewing your Fake Coffee.
  • Combine 1 weighted ounce of Fake Coffee with 1 litre of water. Give the contents a good stir.
  • Cover the container with a lid and place in a cool / shaded area.
  • Wait. For 6 WHOLE HOURS.
  • After 6 hours, strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
  • This method produces a concentrate that you can dilute to your specific tastes with water.
  • Now that you have your Fake Coffee Cold Brew, add 2 ounces of Baileys for every 8 ounces of Fake Coffee, or play around with the proportions if you’d like.
