What is Irish Cream?

Irish Cream is a creamy liqueur made with the base of Irish whiskey, heavy cream and other flavors like vanilla and chocolate with a nutty finish. Irish Cream is usually served on by itself or mixed in cocktails. It’s like dessert and a drink all at once.


One of the most popular ways to enjoy Irish Cream is by adding it to coffee or hot chocolate. And while these are considered a cocktail, we wanted to make a list of Irish Cream cocktail recipes that can be enjoyed all year round!

Irish Cream Cocktails

Irish Cream is a great liqueur for decadent and creamy drinks, but without the hard bite of whiskey that a lot of people don’t care for. We obviously love whiskey, but those that want to explore whiskey, but in sweet cocktails, we have you covered!

If you want any Irish Whiskey cocktails, we suggest our Irish Sour, Toasted Cream Irish Coffee, or the Slainte!


Irish cream can be a star ingredient in espresso martinis, St Patrick’s Day drinks, and creamy drinks for any occasion. Could be a sugar cookie martini for Christmas, or a White Russian made more decadent with Baileys Irish Cream.


So don’t just keep Irish Cream for the holidays, feel free to shake up some delicious cocktails year round!
