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!
