As the cold weather comes to an end, so does the warm, cozy joy of drinking hot chocolate and hot coffee. Spring and summer bring on the iced drink cravings, so there couldn't be a better time for Baileys' new iced coffee drinks.
If you spent your winter enjoying a nice cup of Baileys hot chocolate in front of the fireplace, you'll be happy to know that you can get your Baileys fix during the warm weather, too. Metro News reports that you can now buy Baileys cold and in a single-serving can. You don't even have to prepare it! Pour it over ice and open the doors and windows. Enjoy the nice breeze while you sip a delicious new drink.
There are two flavors available: Baileys Iced Coffee Mocha and Baileys Iced Coffee Latte. They each contain 4 percent alcohol and are sure to hit the spot. The Sun reports that the new drinks are made with blends of arabica and robusta beans, real milk, Baileys Irish Cream and cocoa for the mocha version, and are sold in 12 packs in most U.K. supermarkets for about $2.31 per can. Unfortunately, they're only available overseas right now, but don't fret! Baileys has posted a video on its website demonstrating how to make your own Baileys Iced Coffee. Check it out below.
It's really quite simple, just about as simple as you'd imagine. Brew some coffee, let it cool, add ice and Baileys and there you go! Nothing to it. Of course, if you're like me you're much more likely to drink a nice iced Baileys drink if it's ready without any prepping, and can be conveniently bought in a can at the supermarket. Maybe beggars can't be choosers, or maybe they'll make their way stateside in good time.
Since it's hard to tell whether or not that would happen, it's best to watch this video. It will certainly get you in the mood to make and enjoy your very own Baileys Iced Coffee.
