Shame on all of you who just made a disgusting face.
Bailey’s and Coke are paired in several cocktail recipes, usually those crafted to accompany dessert or designed to be enjoyed as a night-cap. The flavour falls somewhere between a mixed drink and a milkshake, creamy and slightly carbonated.
Bailey’s is a liqueur that blends Irish Whiskey with fresh cream. It came on the market in 1974, and was the first “Irish Cream” to be manufactured commercially. It doesn’t require preservatives or refrigeration because the alcohol acts as a natural preservative for the cream. Regardless of whether the bottle has been opened or not, however, it has a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture. Unlike most other bottles in your bar, you have to check the label on your Bailey’s because it will go “off” and taste sour after the expiration date.
Since inventing the original, several variations of Bailey’s have appeared on the shelves. These include Mint Chocolate, Orange Truffle, Coffee, and Hazelnut. The Salted Caramel Bailey’s Irish Cream goes particularly well with Coke as caramel is one of the latter’s “secret” ingredients.
Be sure to let us know at liquor online which you prefer, because we know that once you give it a try, you’re going to want to sample more than one.
