Irish Cream

Where did Irish Cream come from?

Bailey’s Irish Cream is a cream based liqueur containing whiskey that is made by Gibleys ofIreland. Ireland is famous for their whiskey, and with great whiskey, comes other great drinks.  Irish Cream came about in 1971. Prior to that, whiskey alone had been known to upset some peoples stomach (to this day people still agree with that). To combat their upset stomachs, The Irish would mix cream and whiskey together. The idea was to give the whiskey a wholesome “base” to drink it with. Although it has been proven that this doesn’t work, it put the ball in motion to develop one of Irelands most popular Liqueurs.

What is it made of?

Irish cream, like many other recipes, can vary depending on who makes it. Some people like it sweet, others don’t. Some people like it strong, while others prefer it more milky. Either way, most Irish cream recipes contain cream, sweetened condensed milk, whiskey, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla.

What does it taste like?

Irish cream is very rich. It is usually added to coffee and consumed after a meal. It’s sweet, and taste faintly of chocolate and almonds, with a milky consistency; perfect to add to a cup of coffee on a rainy day.
