Baileys: A Whipped Review and Recipe

I was introduced to Baileys through Haagen Dazs ice cream. Growing up my mother would buy their rum raisin ice cream and then act like it was alcoholic so I could only have a small taste (she just didn’t want to share).

Getting Hooked

One night on my way home from the gym I decided to go buy a container of the rum raisin. The store was out, so I figured I would try the Baileys Haagen Dazs ice cream and I was hooked. Sadly, Haagen Dazs has since discontinued the flavor.

Since turning 21, I have always kept a bottle Baileys Original Irish Cream in my liquor cabinet. I use Baileys mostly for milkshakes and other tasty treats. Baileys, for me, is more of a dessert drink, making it a liquor that allows for a different creativity when you are making drinks.

Baileys 5 different flavors

2. Baileys  Espresso Crème

3. Baileys Salted Caramel

5. Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon

The Recipe

I wanted to write this review as an excuse to publish my recipe that turned my grandmother into a little kid who demands that she gets to lick the bowl.

Baileys Whipped Cream

8oz Heavy Cream
1Tbs confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
1oz Baileys (I use the original cream because it best mimics the Haagen Dazs)

Combine in a mixing bowl and whisk until peaks form in the whipped cream OR (and this is how I learned how to make it) combine all ingredients into a single serving blender (nutribullet or comparable with the Extractor Blade) and blend until the blender sounds like it is having a harder time whipping through the mix.

Serve Chilled

I serve this chilled for about 15 minutes in the freezer to thicken it up and garnished with chocolate shavings on top.
