As some of you may know already, I am home in Michigan for the holidays. It appears that we’ll have a white Christmas this year which is great! Fortunately, I completed my gift purchasing and wrapping and I am snowing myself in for the rest of the night with another festive drink.
As many people don’t know yet, Bailey’s released a vegan almond-based liquor a couple years ago. I have been waiting patiently for it to hit local stores and I am finally giving it a try and posting a review! I mixed it with So Delicious coconut milk eggless nog and topped it with coconut whipped cream and cinnamon. I also stirred cinnamon and nutmeg into the drink mixture itself to add flavor.
- It has a pretty strong almond flavor, which some may like and some may not, but it meshes very well with the eggless nog, making it taste more like an Original Bailey’s and nog drink.
- Unlike the Original Bailey’s, the almande liquor leaves a sweet aftertaste in your mouth, so again, I recommend adding extra spice to tame the sugary aftertaste.
- Its consistency is on the thin side. It’s not as creamy as the Original Bailey’s, but again, if mixing it with eggless nog, that will help thicken it up.
Overall, I think it’s a great holiday drink mixer. I wish that Bailey’s would have instead used coconut milk as a base because it’s naturally creamier and has a lighter taste. Hopefully, this is only the first of many plant-based liquors to be released by Bailey’s.
Merry Christmas and drink responsibly!
