Irish Delight

I created another cocktail for St. Patty's day today and I call it Irish Delight.  


Towards the end of last year (still can't believe March is half over) I noticed all of these different flavors that Bailey's was coming out with.  


I had purchased the Vanilla Cinnamon flavor and have only made one cocktail with it so far, Beauty And The Beast.  Today was my time to make another one.


I decided to pull out my bottle of Jamesons Whiskey and mix it up with the Baileys and see what I got.  Apparently I got an Irish Delight.......since that's what I named it.  


Not being a whiskey girl, I must admit this cocktail is pretty good.  


I do definitely taste the whiskey in it, but since this is a whiskey cocktail....I think you should.  The vanilla cinnamon flavoring in the Baileys adds a nice twist to this cocktail as well.  All in all, I like it and I think if you like the ingredients--you'll like it too!


This year for St. Patrick's Day we are having my folks over for dinner.  


Every year we go to my parents house and my mom boils up a corned beef, but this year I am going to cook mine in the slow cooker.  I have tried my friend Stephanie's recipe for her Dijon Corned Beef.  My family all likes it and I just know the folks will like it as well.  I am also making one of her scalloped potato recipes, but in the oven.  


YUM!!  I can't wait just thinking about it!  


Do you have any plans for the day?  What are they?  What will you be eating and drinking?

Here in my recipe for an Irish Delight:

  • 1 ounce of Irish Whiskey
  • 1 1/2 ounces Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon Irish Cream

Fill a short cocktail glass up with ice.  Dump that ice into a shaker and pour in the two ingredients above.  Shake lightly to mix it up, but not too hard to crush the ice.  Dump everything back into your glass.




Here's to a good whiskey cocktail!

Cheers!!

  1. Honestly not sure what we'll be eating tomorrow. I didn't buy a corned beef this year, but I have made Steph's recipes in the past with great success.

    1. You know I honestly usually forget about the corned beef, until my folks end up inviting us over for dinner.....each year, ha. Whatever you have, I hope you have a great dinner! xoxo
