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).
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
1. Baileys Original Irish cream
2. Baileys Espresso Crème
3. Baileys Salted Caramel
4. Baileys Chocolate Cherry
5. Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon
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
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.
I serve this chilled for about 15 minutes in the freezer to thicken it up and garnished with chocolate shavings on top.
