Roses are red, violets are blue. This new Baileys Strawberries & Cream is definitely for you. Sketchy poetry aside, just in times for Valentine’s Day, Baileys has released their limited-edition Strawberries & Cream flavor. The new flavor is described as a combination of “the flavor of ripe strawberries” and “the creamy delicious taste of Baileys.”
Given that Baileys Strawberries & Cream sounds absolutely decadent, the brand has partnered with Brooklyn-based Mini Melanie for two dessert recipes: Berry Baileys Bundt Cake and Baileys Strawberries and Dream Mousse. Although I prefer my Baileys on ice, these recipes sound like a fun addition to a Galentine’s celebration or an at-home dinner with your boo. You can find the recipe to both of these Lushworthy desserts, below. Cheers!
(Baileys Strawberries & Cream will be available from February to April)
