You may immediately associate Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur with any number of decadent dessert cocktails or as a special splash in your morning coffee, but have you ever wondered what exactly is in a bottle of Baileys? Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur contains real Irish whisky, actual dairy cream, cocoa, and a few other additives like milk proteins and a neutral spirit. This winning combination has since become the best-selling liqueur in the whole world. Besides the ingredient list, a standard shot of Baileys Original has a 17% alcohol content and an indulgent 140 calories.
In your coffee — but besides the obvious, there are literally dozens of fun, inventive cocktail recipes you can try that feature Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur. For one, the mudslide: blend together 2 ounces Baileys Original Irish Cream, 0.5 ounces vodka (Smirnoff is a good choice), and 1 cup of ice, then drizzle chocolate syrup in the bottom of your serving glass, and finally, pour the blended mixture into the glass (seriously, yum). Pro tip: you can order all of these ingredients, including the ice and chocolate syrup, through Drizly’s all-in-one app (availability of ingredients depends on your location).
According to the Baileys team, a 100mL serving of Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur contains 314 Kcal, but let’s translate that into something we can all understand: a standard shot glass is about 44mL (or 1.5 ounces) so (open those calculator apps) a shot of Bailey's contains about 140 calories. That’s right — just one shot of Baileys has as many calories as a bottle of beer. However, when you consider that Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur contains actual Irish dairy cream and whisky, you shouldn’t be at all surprised by its staggering calorie count.
Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur is the top-selling liqueur in the whole world; you can find a bottle of this tasty treat on bar shelves everywhere, and everyone should have one stocked in their home liquor cabinets. You can feel confident gifting a bottle of Baileys Original because it is beloved.
