What's not to love about irish whiskey mixed with cream? That's where Bailey's Irish Cream comes in. Drinks made with Baileys will give you a sweet creamy drink which is why you will most often find baileys drinks served as dessert cocktails. Baileys can also add a smooth texture to shooter style recipes like the classic B52 Shot made with equal parts Baileys, Kahlua and Grand Marnier which are not mixed together, instead poured one by one to create the signature layered look. Although other brands have come out with their own take on an Irish Cream Liqueur, Baileys was the first to hit the market in the early 1970's. Baileys Irish cream will stay fresh after opening for up to two years (whether or not you keep it refrigerated) so stock up, because you never know when that Sunday morning coffee could use a little extra something.
