If you’re a lover of Baileys Irish Cream liqueur, here’s a waist-pleasing option:

Cream from grass-grazing Irish cows, and the flavors of cocoa and vanilla, are still here.

How does it taste?

Compared to the The Original Baileys, it’s less thick and rich, as if it were made with half-and-half instead of cream.

But it’s equally delicious, especially when you look at the benefit:

Gone are many of the calories: 40% fewer calories and 40% fewer grams of sugar than Baileys Original Irish Cream (see comparison in the footnote *).

What this means to us is: a larger glass!

We love Baileys instead of dessert at the end of dinner. You can also enjoy it:

  • Over ice
  • In coffee, hot or iced
  • Drizzled over ice cream
  • Added to an ice cream soda or shake

    Check with your local retailer. Online, we’ve found prices raging from $ 25.99 to $ 38.99 (in a pricey zip code of Manhattan).

    In addition to grabbing a bottle for yourself—or maybe two, since it will go quickly—Baileys Deliciously Light and Baileys Original both make spot-on gifts for St. Patrick’s Day.

    A bottle is gift enough; but if you want something more elaborate, there are also themed gift boxes through a partnership with Cocktail Coutourier.
