It’s that time of year again! Get your Irish on with these 15 Favorite Irish Cream recipes! It seems like the list of things to make with Bailey’s is endless!

Finally, Washington State allowes you to purchase the hard stuff in grocery stores and when it came to buying booze in bulk – Costco was where it was at. Ben scoffed at me when I carted around a half gallon bottle of Irish Cream , thinking it was pure lunacy that I buy that much Irish cream at one time. He said I’d never find a way to finish it all. CHALLENGE, ACCEPTED!!

I baked with it, I drank it, I baked with it some more – and then added it into every conceivable and socially acceptable drink I could – and finally the bottle is nearing completion.

*To be fair – it’s taken me a year and a half for finish it – so please dont’ think I’m an alcoholic, it’s really not like that.* Sorry, I feel like I needed to justify that to the internet.

But even while cooking and baking and consuming it – there were some really fun things that came out of it, like breakfasty things, and desserty things, and everything in between. And I’m not the only one with a mind geared towards great Irish cream concoctions – there are some truly inspired ideas to be had by all! See what inspires you and your Irish Cream loving heart down below!
