Strawberry and Cream Baileys? WTAT?

Asda seemed to be doing a promotion on this stuff today - stacks of pink bottles all over.

Why? Do people drink that stuff? Why would you want an alcoholic drink that tastes like milkshake?

I suppose it could make Wimbledon bearable after a bottle of it.

Apparently Tommy Walsh from the gardening shows used to drink Baileys in a pint glass when he was at his fattest.

I'd give it a go but would treat it as a dessert, as with all Bailey's.

Bailey's Biscoff Cheesecake would be good.

fenderita bought some. Hasn't tried it yet. It looks disgusting.

It just seems to be a way of producing pink vomit, if you ask me.

Alcohol for infants. Like everything is getting a bit infanty.

In my day we had to put up with gripe "water".

What was your complaint regarding gripe water?

Catspyjamas17 - 25 Jun 2018 20:01:42 (#9 of 59)

I was never into mint Aero vodka and the like.

I got in a lot of trouble with my employer for refusing to stock the early alcopops* in my shop. Or, as it was known throughout the off-trade, "junior beer".

* we did TwoDogs, other places did Hooch

You could pour it over strawberries instead of cream. Or as well as.

Peacock - 25 Jun 2018 20:05:56 (#12 of 59)

Yep. Pour on ice cream.

FleurDuMal - 25 Jun 2018 20:13:26 (#13 of 59)

In France, a lot of places serve Coup Colonel. It’s basically a very hefty slug of vodka, with a scoop of lemon sorbet to preserve the fiction that it’s a dessert.

AlanII - 25 Jun 2018 20:16:45 (#14 of 59)

They go incredibly well together though.

JohnIlly - 25 Jun 2018 20:17:32 (#15 of 59)

I think Peacock is right. If you are ever landed with a bottle of the stuff by winning it in a raffle then pour it on icecream. It's the only way to get rid of creme de menthe, as well.

It was the wrong colour with little paper parasols.

Brunothecat - 25 Jun 2018 20:30:30 (#17 of 59)

I've heard a splash of créme de menthe goes a treat in the water in a hubble bubble pipe or bong.

JohnIlly - 25 Jun 2018 20:32:40 (#18 of 59)

I read that at first glance as "in a bubble bath" which would leave you minty fresh.

Brunothecat - 25 Jun 2018 20:37:20 (#19 of 59)

Bt sticky for my taste, as a drink or a bath oil.

Faraway - 25 Jun 2018 20:55:18 (#20 of 59)

Quite liking the sound of the vodka sorbet. Strawberry milkshake Baileys, not so much.
