How to make easy, delicious cocktails with Baileys
Baileys Irish Cream, a premium creamed Irish whiskey made almost exclusively of ingredients straight from the Emerald Isle, is a favorite of bartenders worldwide. At home, we often just pour some Baileys into coffee for after-dinner drinks. But don’t let the barkeeps have all the fun. You can make these five easy favorites at home.
Banana split martini
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce creme de bananes
1/2 ounce Baileys Irish Cream (classic or caramel)
1 maraschino cherry
Before you mix the drink, sprinkle cocoa powder on a small plate. Moisten the rim of a martini glass and spin it in the powder to rim.
Shake the liquid ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain the drink into the glass.
Make a small slit in the bottom of a maraschino cherry (on the opposite side of the stem) and slip onto the glass rim for garnish.
