Updated on March 13, 2011

Are you looking for a refreshing after adult beverage? It's hard to beat the rich, creamy flavor of Baileys Irish Cream. Whether you just want to a dash of an adult beverage to your evening cup of coffee or you're looking for a refreshing spirit to drink over ice or blended in a cocktail, Baileys is a terrific choice.

Baileys is a unique combination of Irish whiskey, rich and fresh double cream, and other ingredients. It's available in four different varieties, including original, Caramel, Mint Chocolate, and Coffee. Each flavor is delicious served alone or used as the main ingredient in making delicious cocktails.

Ways to Enjoy Baileys Irish Cream

There are many ways to enjoy this delicious drink. The most simple – and one of the best -- way to enjoy Baileys Irish Cream is right out of the bottle. Simply pour Baileys over ice and enjoy. If you're feeling adventurous, though, you can make all kinds of tasty concoctions with Baileys Irish Cream.

The Baileys Shiver

If you're looking for something particularly cool and refreshing, consider making a Baileys shiver. All you'll need is a bottle of Baileys, a few ice cubes, and your blender. Simply place two ice cubes into your blender, then pour in 3.5 ounces of your favorite flavor of Baileys Irish Cream. Blend until the drink is smooth, pour into a cocktail glass, and enjoy. This recipe is sufficient for a single serving, so be sure to increase quantities proportionately if you are preparing beverages for friends or family members.

Baileys Irish Martini

If you're looking for a creative martini idea, try something completely different from a fruity concoction or traditional martini. The only equipment you'll need to prepare your very own Irish Martini is a cocktail shaker.

To make your Irish Martini, start by placing a few ice cubes into your shaker. Next, pour in 4 ounces of your favorite Baileys Irish Cream variety, an ounce of Bushmill's Irish Whiskey, and a shot glass of cold coffee (the stronger, the better). Shake vigorously and serve.

Baileys Chocolatini

If you're looking for a decadent dessert drink, Baileys Irish Cream is the perfect ingredient to start with. You can make delicious chocolatinis in no time at all. Simply place a few drops of ice into a cocktail shaker, and top off with two ounces of Baileys, ½ ounce of top quality Vodka, and ½ ounce of Godiva Chocolate liqueur. Shake briskly, strain into a chilled martini glass, and enjoy.
