I LOVE the flavor of Irish Cream, but I never really cared for the other brands of Irish Cream flavored coffee creamers, be they powder or liquid. Why? you ask — because they didn’t taste like Irish Cream; I had to add a TON of it, just to get some of that amazing flavor, and adding so much of it masked the flavor of the coffee. But then — finally! — Bailey’s came out with their own brand of creamers that taste JUST LIKE Irish Cream to me, and you don’t need a lot of it for that flavor to shine through in your coffee.
Then one day, I was experimenting with a frosting (or maybe it was a glaze) and decided to add Bailey’s coffee creamer for extra flavor (I’ve consistently had a container of the Original Irish Cream flavor in my fridge ever since it came out). Much to my surprise, it whipped! So, I looked at the label, and sure enough, it’s made with REAL cream. I thought, The next time I plan to have after-dinner coffee, I’m whipping up a batch of this…. Think about it: Not only will it make a nice presentation (picture a creamy dollop floating like a cloud on top of your coffee — or hot chocolate), but it will taste great, too! Enjoy!
