What is Bayles?

Bailey’s is a creamy texture liqueur made from Irish whiskey blended with cream for those unfamiliar.

It has a deliciously smooth texture and flavor that lends itself well to both cold and hot drinks.


Here are a few tips for ensuring your Baileys drinks turn out their best:

  • Measure carefully for a balanced flavor.
  • Use a metallic mixer or jar when shaking/blending creamy cocktails.
  • Garnish festively with cinnamon sticks, chocolate shavings, candy canes, and chocolate sprinkles.

What tools do you need to make these baileys Christmas cocktails?

Cocktail Shaker: A cocktail shaker is essential for mixing ingredients and creating a smooth and well-blended drink.

Jigger: A jigger helps you measure the right amount of Baileys and other spirits, ensuring a perfectly balanced cocktail.

Mixing Glass: A mixing glass is useful for stirring cocktails that don’t require shaking, such as the Baileys White Russian.

Cocktail glasses: Martini glass, rocks glass, mug, etc.

You may also want a few other liquors on hand like vodka, whisky, coffee liqueur, or Kahlua to mix things up.
