Her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard, and now singer/chef/”Milkshake” maven Kelis is sharing that shake recipe with the world. In honor of National Chocolate Milkshake Day, Kelis partnered with Baileys to create “My Milkshake,” a boozy milkshake featuring the Irish Cream. I gotta hand it to Kelis, I expected a super standard boozy milkshake recipe, but she added some unexpected (and potentially delicious) ingredients, including ginger beer, cayenne pepper, and ginger-infused whipped cream (say what?!!).
You can find the full recipe and a recipe video for Kelis’ “My Milkshake,” below. Cheers!
4 Scoops Chocolate Ice Cream
8 oz. Ginger Beer
3 oz. Baileys Original Irish Cream
5 Pieces Candied Ginger
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
Chili Cinnamon (To Rim)
Ginger-Infused Whipped Cream
Blend chocolate ice cream, ginger beer, Baileys, and cayenne pepper. Rim a tall glass with chili cinnamon. Carefully pour blended ingredients into your rimmed glass. Top with ginger-infused whipped cream and candied ginger. Proceed to bring all the boys to the yard.
Vegans rejoice! With the announcement of Baileys Almande, you can now enjoy the boozy decadence that is Baileys liqueur. The dairy free, gluten free liqueur is made using Baileys’ own almondmilk, which is a blend of sweet almond oil and almond essence (extracted from crushed almonds), cane sugar, and purified water with a touch of real vanilla
A description for Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur on the Baileys website, states the following:
“Introducing a delicious and light tasting spirit from Baileys made with real almondmilk. This smooth spirit blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almondmilk and real vanilla to create a versatile drink. Serve over crushed ice or mix with coconut water for a delicious summer cocktail.”
I’m not vegan, but I do love almond milk (it makes thee best smoothies), so I’m very curious as to how this newest addition to the Baileys line will taste.
Well gentlemen, it’s that time of year again. Cupid is on the prowl, love is in the air and that special someone in your life is awaiting to see just how romantic of a night you have planned. Yeah, it’s the special day we call Valentine’s Day, the day we all express our love to our significant other and smother each other with kisses and hugs. Flowers, dinner, maybe a small, sentimental gift, it’s all well and good, but it’s been done over and over and over again. Your lady wants to see you get creative and unless you were born with a singing voice like yours truly (not true, but it sounds good) you might be in a bit of a bind. However, Ol’ Willie boy here has got you covered.
Her tastes buds will melt when she tastes The Velvet Kiss. This red velvet cake inspired cocktail will have you looking cooler than Clark Gable back in 1939 on the silver screen. Before things heat up, keep her cool with this blend of Tequila Rose liqueur, Baileys Irish Creme and last, but certainly not least red velvet Oreo cookies. Scroll down, get the recipe and thank me in the comments. Happy Valentine’s Day everybody, cheers!
1.5 oz Tequila Rose Strawberry Liqueur
0.5 oz Baileys Irish Creme

4-6 Red Velvet Oreo Cookies
1 Cup of Ice
In a blender, add Tequila Rose, Bailey’s Irish Creme, strawberry liqueur, 4-5 red velvet Oreo cookies and ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a hurricane glass lined with strawberry syrup. Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of strawberry syrup. Garnish with a red velvet Oreo cookie and serve with a straw.
Usually around this time of the year, Baileys introduces a new flavor indicative of the fall/winter season (hazelnut, cinnamon, you get the idea). But this year the brand has introduced something far more exciting. This season, Baileys will welcome the new Baileys Chocolat Luxe, a spirit made using real Belgian chocolate, Irish Whiskey, and cream. To craft such a decadent libation, Anthony Wilson, son of the creator of Baileys, traveled to three different continents to find the most ideal chocolate for Baileys Chocolate Luxe, a spirit that’s fittingly targeted to the world traveler. Talk about a sweet job (both figuratively and literally).
“Baileys was the first liqueur to fuse Irish whiskey and cream, and now Baileys Chocolat Luxe heralds a ground-breaking innovation in chocolate,” said Wilson in a statement. “For the first time, real Belgian chocolate has been fused with alcohol in a way that delivers the multi-sensory experience of chocolate in a glass. I am proud to be part of the team who brought a piece of chocolate paradise to world travellers for the very first time.”
If you have plans on traveling outside of the country this holiday season, you can find Baileys Chocolat Luxe at select duty free outlets. At least now you have a reason to visit your twice-removed cousins in Scandinavia.
So I just got the memo about it being National Donut Day and I immediately scoured the internet in search of the coolest, donut-inspired cocktail and I found one! It’s the “Jam Donut” cocktail (more like a shot) and the recipe comes courtesy of DrinksMixer.com. With two main ingredients, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Chambord Liqueur, the “Jam Donut” cocktail seems pretty easy to make. Enjoy your National Donut Day and try not to go too crazy at Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts today!
2/3 oz Bailey’s® Irish Cream
1/3 oz Chambord® Raspberry Liqueur
1 tsp Sugar Syrup
2 Pinches Sugar
Coat the rim of a shot glass with sugar using sugar syrup to stick. Add the Chambord raspberry liqueur to the shot glass, and carefully layer the Bailey’s Irish Cream on top.
