Baileys Irish Cream Cocktails

Updated on December 4, 2013

Delicious Baileys Cocktail Recipes

Baileys - the gorgeous, silky, creamy drink - ensnaring the flavours of Ireland's best liqueur.

Baileys is the most heavenly Irish Cream you will ever taste. A versatile drink, you can have it neat over ice, or shake it up with a few other ingredients to make some of these delicious cocktails.

I am a religious follower of all things Baileys - and here are a collection of their best cocktails, plus a few others that I have invented myself. Enjoy.
