This 'thing' for Bailey's has passed me by but I'm determined to try harder so - how do you drink your Bailey's? What sort of a glass, with ice, without, with something else?

And does it actually have an apostrophe?

Neat-preferably chocolate Luxe version.

whiskey tumbler with ice

🤢. Couldn’t drink it to save my life.

The gin thing passed me by for years but I finally cracked it when I was 40.
I didn’t have to try with Baileys, it was instant love.
A whisky glass but definitely no ice, it dilutes it 😄 why would you? 😟

sago, I am of the same opinion but am determined to overcome my aversion.

A large one over ice.

When alone, from the bottle... Just kidding.
Whiskey glass, neat, in company or in a tall glass (for volume!).

However it comes. If I've had a couple already, I could happily swig it out of the bottle.

It's even nice in coffee. And delish over ice cream.

I'm not keen on it. I'd rather have a whisky and green ginger.

Never. What a disappointment.

Tried most of the varieties but keep coming back to the original.

My favourite is a strong black coffee topped up with Bailey's. After that it is large one on the rocks.

Years ago I made a Bailey's cheesecake🤪. Oh Yes !

Has anyone tried the Chocolate Leibniz Baileys biscuits?

As quickly as possible it seems! I can luxuriously polish off half a bottle -crystal whisky glass 'specially reserved for the occasion and over ice - before thinking "where's that gone so soon?".
It's delicious.

Over ice.

Pittcity Sat 11-Dec-21 15:14:28

In hot chocolate!

Smileless2012 Sat 11-Dec-21 15:16:01

Over ice for me too.

BlueBelle Sat 11-Dec-21 15:17:02

Out of anything that comes to hand

DanniRae Sat 11-Dec-21 15:18:44

In coffee - just asked Mr R if we have any and apparently we have so guess what I will be drinking later? tchsmile

Deedaa Sat 11-Dec-21 15:24:36

Not at all in my case! The thought of alcohol with cream in is just awful.

JaneJudge Sat 11-Dec-21 15:24:46

we keep ours in the fridge

GagaJo Sat 11-Dec-21 15:27:20

I also really like Kahlua. Also gorgeous in a white coffee.

Jaxjacky Sat 11-Dec-21 15:57:55

Not for me thanks.

Amberone Sat 11-Dec-21 15:58:00

Any way it comes 😁 cream liqueurs like Baileys at Christmas are almost the only alcohol drinks I like

Calendargirl Sat 11-Dec-21 15:58:30

Bought a litre bottle from Tesco the other day £9.50, what a bargain!

Am being strong and not starting it yet!
