VALENTINE GIFT: Bailey’s Irish Cream

Bailey’s Irish Cream has been a favorite since it was first introduced in the U.S., way back in 1974. The Irish whiskey and cream based liqueur is 17% alcohol by volume: delicious for sipping, for mixing into cocktails or as an ingredient in desserts.

The first Irish cream liqueur on the market, Baileys was created by Gilbeys of Ireland, a division of International Distillers & Vintners. No one named Bailey was involved: The name was inspired by Bailey’s Hotel in London, an elegant Victorian townhouse in South Kensington that is now owned by Millennium Hotels.

Over the years, the Original Baileys flavor had been joined by Caramel, Coffee and Mint variations. The most recent is Bailey’s Hazelnut.

Any of the flavors would make a delicious Valentine gift, or a recipe ingredient in a cold or hot drink and/or dessert. You can even add it to your chocolate truffles recipe (or use one of Baileys’ recipes).
