With most of the UK spending more time than ever in our gardens thanks to the recent searing temperatures, it seems like the perfect opportunity to whip up an icy cocktail or two.
While Bailey’s may be associated with Christmas cocktails, the Baileys Almonde is perfectly suited to the hotter months, and what’s more, the much-loved cream liquor is dairy-free so ideal for vegans.
Using nutty flavours of real almond milk and real vanilla, the drink is refreshingly light tasting- ideal for serving over ice or mixing with coconut water for a top summer cocktail.
Even better, the vegan drink is now on offer on Amazon for only £12- that’s a decent saving of 40 per cent.
Baileys Almande Liqueur is now on offer on Amazon for only £12 a litre and is a great vegan-friendly option
The original much-loved cream liqueur isn’t suitable for everyone, with vegans and those that suffer from dairy intolerance’s having to miss out over the years. Made from crushed almond essence, cane sugar and purified water with a touch of real vanilla, it’s now ready to be enjoyed by all.
If you’re throwing a small garden party or hosting a family BBQ this summer, then it could be a great time to experiment with the Baileys Almande Liqueur. Enjoyed over ice it is the perfect sweet fix to finish a meal, or alternatively, why not try the suggested way of mixing it with coconut water for a refreshing cocktail?
Loyal fans of the original will notice the difference in taste and texture in the Almande Liqueur as it isn’t as thick or as creamy, however with an impressive average score of 4.4 out of 5 on Amazon, customers still love the taste.
One delighted customer wrote: ‘I ordered this out of curiosity. The taste is delicious with strong almond flavour, but the consistency is nowhere near the original Bailey’s. This is thinner and not as milky. Delicious nevertheless. Just different.’
Another agreed, adding: ‘So creamy, sweet and not just an alternative to the original baileys but delicious in its own right. Only complaint is the bottle never lasts long enough haha 10/10!.’
Dairy-free, the Baileys Almande drink is ideal for vegans or those looking to cut down on daily
The Baileys Almande Liqueur can be used to shake up your desserts and hot chocolates too. One happy shopper wrote: ‘A bit of decadence. This was lovely over ice cream.’
Not just for summer, the notes of honey and almond with a light creaminess make it equally as enjoyable in the colder months. The brand suggests to ‘pour the hot chocolate into the mug with the Baileys Almande. Pile on whipped cream, and go utterly almond with the toppings’.
Whether you’re looking to jazz up your vegan hot chocolates or whipped into a spiced chai latte, the bottle is great for experimenting with. All in moderation, of course.
