What is Baileys Irish Cream?
Baileys is an Irish cream liqueur from Dublin, Ireland that is found in many St. Patrick’s Day cocktails.
It tastes milky (from the cream), like chocolate vanilla (from the cocoa) and nutty (from the Irish whiskey).
It’s a sweet decadent liquor with a low 17% alcohol content.
Because it is so thick and creamy, it can be drunken straight from the bottle, on the rocks are mixed into a cocktail.
