| Baileys 'Original Irish Cream' Liqueur 750ml|
Baileys is produced using the best quality ingredients: fresh Irish dairy cream, Irish whiskey and natural flavours. The cream used in Baileys is delivered daily in insulated tankers and processed on the day it arrives. The Irish whiskey is triple distilled. The great taste of Baileys is consistently delivered by combining the finest quality ingredients in a unique recipe. Baileys contains no preservatives and has a shelf life of 24 months.
Baileys was the first liqueur to use cream and alcohol together in a manner sufficiently stable to allow commercial distribution. The cream and whiskey are homogenized to form an emulsion, with the aid of an emulsifier containing refined vegetable oil. This process prevents separation of the whiskey and cream during storage. The quantity of other ingredients used is not known but they include chocolate, vanilla, caramel and sugar. According to the manufacturer no preservatives are required, the whiskey alone is used to preserve the cream.
Irish Cream can be drunk alone, over ice or as part of a cocktail. It is also commonly used as an addition to coffee in lieu of cream or sugar. As is the case with milk, cream will curdle whenever it comes into contact with a weak acid. Milk and cream contain casein which coagulates when mixed with weak acids such as lemon, tonic water or lime cordial. While this outcome is undesirable in most situations some cocktails specifically encourage coagulation. A Cement Mixer is an alcoholic drink usually made with lemon juice and Baileys Irish Cream though acidic alcohols can replace the lemon juice. A shot of lemon juice is taken first and held in the cheek, followed by a shot of Baileys, with the two mixed in the mouth. The acidity of the lemon juice curdles the Irish cream and the mixture is swallowed. Baileys Coffee is made using a measure of Baileys in a cup of coffee and then topped off with cream.
