Coole Swan 24 November 2020

Coole Swan has a very simple concept: Bailey's, done right.

So rather than whatever horrible "Irish whiskey" is in surplus this week, it uses a single malt Irish; rather than generic left-over cream from Express Dairies it uses cream from the maker's farm; rather than Nesquik it uses Callebaut Belgian white chocolate.

And the result… has a little more bite to it that Bailey's, but is still smooth rather than harsh, with a surprising complexity to it. You could use this as a cocktail mixer but it's really rather pleasant on its own.

The only question now is what to do with the Bailey's I still have in the reserve…

    So if this is the real "Irish Cream", perhaps Bailey's ought to be nicknamed "Horrible Goose"?

    Pour over a dish of vanilla ice cream.

    Crunchy Nut cornflakes have also been recommended.

    Add the Baileys to hot chocolate. Assuming you like hot chocolate...

    Like the advert, pour the Baileys into a headless chocolate reindeer and put squirty cream on top. What?
