I love Baileys Irish Cream

They make a coffee creamer (non-alcoholic), too

And I love it in my coffeee for those non-alcoholic but still want the taste of Baileys moments

In the wee hours Friday night I had a craving for some Bailey’s.  The alcoholic version.  This is what I came up with.

Vanilla Baileys Slushie

1 shot glass of Bailey’s Irish Cream (about 1 ounce but 2 ounces is fine too)

8 to 10 ice cubes

1 splash water (about 1-2 tbsp)

Vanilla Stevia, to taste (optional)

And/or

1/8 tsp vanilla extract + sweeter of choice

Directions: Combine all items in Vita-Mix or blender and blend until ice is crushed and drink is frothy or slushie-like in texture

Note: Vita users are at an advantage because you are making Bailey’s “ice cream” in about 20-30 seconds in your machine <– buy a Vita if for no other reason than that

Gather your booze & sweetener, if desired.  I always desire sweetener.

The pictures scream late night + horrible lighting +iPhone photography

And that’s ok

Because when you want a Baileys Slushie late on a Friday night you are just not concerned about breaking out a big DSLR and waiting for perfect natural lighting.

 But I get brownie points for my super classy plastic cup and glass straw, right?

For all the “volume eaters” (those people who’d rather have a huge plate of steamed broccoli for the same caloric value as 2 bites of a mashed potato with butter), this is a “volume drink”.

One little shot of Baileys produced all this drink (because of the added ice I surmise) and it just whipped up so well.

It was so good that I repeated this little experiment on Saturday night.  And made a double batch and shared it with Scott.  And he asked for seconds.

Questions:

1. Do you like Baileys?

I think I should make Buttery Nipples next.  I am feeling the Baileys love lately.

2. Do you drink your beverages at a slow, average, fast, or warp speed rate?

I am warp speed.  I have to consciously remind myself to sip, not chug.

And even with hot temperatures and beverages, my chug-a-lug rate is not reduced.

Iced coffees are the worst for this because I could literally drink them in a few seconds.  Just like some people can guzzle a 6 oz bottle or water in a few seconds, I can do that with iced coffees.  With water too, but iced coffees are more fun.

I always make my own vanilla iced coffee and never buy them when I’m out.   I could suck $4 down in about 4 seconds flat.
