A special thanks to and in courtesy of Baileys for the complimentary Vita Coco and Baileys Almande. Although these weren’t sent to me for a feature, I thought to share the refreshing drink and give you my review plus a quick recipe. Drink responsibly – Ages 21+ legal purchase age.
Baileys introduces a new drink to the scene: Almande™.
I wanted to attend a local fashion blogger event for Baileys at a barre class, but I missed it due to work. However, Baileys still wanted to connect so I didn’t miss out on the new spirit. I was so excited they reached out to me and sent this new liquer courtesy of their own hospitality.
I know everyone wonders what it’s like to mix dairy with alcohol, but since I haven’t ventured down that avenue just yet, let’s stick to what I do know: I love almond milk. I love pairing almond milk with my cereal or even for my dairy-free version of a White Russian, but this switched up my summer drink palette. It’s light, dairy-free and gluten-free with a light dash of vanilla taste to it.
A tropical birthday theme with cute cups to match?
I think so!
I saved the delicious, nutty drink to share with family on my birthday recently. We dressed up in tropical prints and bright colors like my hometown of Miami (Yes, I am a bit homesick!) , so you know the drinks had to match our weekend attire. With pinkies out and little umbrellas in our coconut and pineapple cups, it certainly felt like a birthday for the books.
Here’s the official recipe to mix it up with the Baileys Almande™ Refresh:
3 oz Baileys Almande™
3 oz Vita Coco
How to Prepare:
Combine Baileys Almande and Vita Coco over ice.
Don’t forget to enjoy! 🙂
