Viral recipes just got a new spin. 🍸
Whipped coffee by day, whipped martinis by night. If you haven’t already caught onto the whipped drink viral train then now’s your golden opportunity to catch a ride with the whipped Baileys Dalgona coffee martini. It takes the viral Dalgona coffee recipe and pairs it with an adult beverage spin. 😉
The whipped drink trend has caught fire on social media and it hasn’t stopped since, but recently, Popsugar.com upped the game and shared a whole new take on the new-found way to make these fluffy, delicious drinks – the Dalgona martini. 😍
If you’ve been following our recipes for the last couple of months, you may have already seen Lina’s viral whipped Dalgona coffee. While we fell in love with the decadent morning beverage, we’re ready for the evening cocktail spin to enjoy during our next virtual happy hour. 🙌
Dalgona coffee is inspired by the South Korean Dalgona candy and traditionally involves whipping instant coffee, granulated sugar, and water into a rich, gooey solid-looking mixture that almost looks like toffee.
However, this time around, we’re shaking up a mixture of Baileys Irish Cream and vodka. And don’t worry, the whipped, fluffy goodness is still here to stay. 😏

“This reminds me of a Baileys Dalgona Martini meets mudslide, a strong drink for the coffee lover.” – Jami
To make this creamy, adult beverage, you’ll need a few more ingredients than then whipped instant coffee or whipped strawberry milk we’ve shared in the past. However, we promise it’s worth the extra ingredients.
You’ll also need a hand mixer if you won’t be opting for the full-body workout using a whisk to reach those soft peaks.
Hip Recipe Tips:
- For this recipe, you’ll need some instant coffee granules. If you’re concerned about caffeine, you can opt for decaf instant coffee instead and get the same whipped result!
- You can use a whisk, coffee frother, or electric mixer to whip up the thick coffee mixture. We tested all three methods and preferred using the whisk attachment with an electric hand mixer.

If you’re missing out on happy hour with friends during quarantine or just want to make easy but unique cocktails at home, this whipped drink is one trend we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon.
Oh my yummy goodness! I have clearly been making the dalgona coffee wrong by not using hot water! No wonder it’s taking my mixer so long!
Let us know how it turns out next time, Amanda!
If you use espresso coffee, do you still use hot water?
