Winter is no longer a distant reality. Soon, we'll be braving subzero temps, buying overpriced puffy coats, and falling prey to slick sidewalks like the chumps we are. And there is all but one saving grace -- it's also hot chocolate season. To celebrate, trusty liqueur brand Baileys is bringing us the booze we need for spiking.
In partnership with Washington, DC-based sweets empire Georgetown Cupcakes, Baileys has crafted a red velvet twist on its iconic Irish Cream. The cupcake-flavored liqueur tastes like a cream cheese frosting-topped chocolate cake with notes of cocoa powder, according to the company.
"As icons of the modern dessert world, Katherine and Sophie are the masters of what it means to 'treat yourself,'" Brand Director, Dorothy DeVenecia, said in a statement. "Baileys is the Original Irish Cream Liqueur, and the No. 1 Liqueur in the world. Born in Ireland in 1974, Baileys was the first spirit to combine cream with Irish Whiskey and other fine spirits, so we're a brand that appreciates and emphasizes innovation. We can't wait for people to enjoy Georgetown Cupcake's number one selling flavor and combined with our delicious liqueur in one delicious treat!"
