Just whip it, whip it real good.

2020 has been through a lot. And if the year has taught us anything so far, it is that sometimes the best (and only) way to cap off your day is with a homemade cocktail or two.

Thankfully, just in time for National Martini Day (19 June), BWS Insider Sam Benham has come up with the ultimate solution. It’s the Baileys Dalgona Martini – combining two of Australia’s favourite things right now: martinis and TikTok.

And, thanks to this Hunter and Bligh exclusive recipe, inspired by Korean whipped coffee, you can make this simple yet deliciously addictive concoction without spending hours scrolling through countless dance videos. Or, if you would prefer, you can make this cocktail and lose track of time at everything TikTok has to offer. Regardless, it’s a win-win situation.


2 tbsp instant coffee
2 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsp hot water
100mL full cream milk (oat milk or almond milk can be used as  non-dairy alternatives)
1 shot of Baileys Irish Cream
1 shot of Kahlua Coffee Liqueur

Tip: You will need to vigorously whisk. We recommend using an electric whisk, but you may use a hand whisk if you’re after a simultaneous upper body workout.


1. To make a Dalgona, in a bowl using an electric or hand whisk, beat the instant coffee, sugar and water together until light brown peaks form when removing the whisk. Set aside.

2. Next, using an ice filled cocktail shaker, pour in the Baileys Irish Cream, the Lawrenny Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur and milk. Shake hard and strain the mixture into a martini, old fashioned or brandy glass.

3. Finally, spoon the whipped Dalgona over your Baileys mixture. Kick back and enjoy!
