It might be a little hot right now to think about drinking a thick, creamy glass of Baileys, but we all know you’re going to be hankering for the stuff as soon as the countdown to Christmas begins.
And guess what? Everyone’s favourite festive drink is getting an upgrade this year, as it now comes flavoured like your favourite Italian dessert.
We are, of course, talking about tiramisu…
Yup, the Irish Cream brand is bringing out a brand new limited edition flavour, named Baileys Tiramisu Cocktail, and it sounds like a literal dream.
The drink is said to boast notes of rich, sweet chocolate and bitter coffee – two flavours tiramisu is known and loved for.
Baileys obviously lends itself to tiramisu flavours, because it is naturally creamy, anyway.
The brand suggests you can enjoy the drink on the rocks as it is, or even combine it with a shot of vodka. Plus, it released a ‘Tiramisu with a Twist’ recipe, if you want to shake things up further.
To make this, all you have to do is mix 50ml of the Tiramisu Cocktail with 25ml of Smirnoff Vodka and ice, then garnish your drink with cocoa powder.
Of course, the only other accompaniment you need is a slice of tiramisu alongside your tipple.
You can buy the limited edition flavour right now online, and and shoppers who love Baileys can find it in all Tesco’s across the country, too.
The drink will cost £17, and joins several other dessert themed Baileys flavours, like Apple Pie, Red Velvet Cupcake, Birthday Cake and a refreshing Eton Mess liqueur.

The tipple started gaining attention online after it was posted by TikTok account, @thisisplanetfood, and it’s not hard to see why it was a hit.
