Wimbledon fans rejoice: there is now a strawberries and cream BAILEYS

Sadly, it’s not quite one of your five-a-day

Baileys may be the sort of drink you reach for during the colder seasons, as snuggling up with a blanket and a Baileys hot chocolate kind of makes us pine for the winter months. Only a little, mind you. However, the creamy liqueur has now brought out a flavour that is simply made for sunny days - their brand new ‘Strawberries and Cream’ variation. Does anything else sound quite so perfect for the quintessential British summertime? We are hoping it tastes basically like alcoholic strawberry ice cream, which is the treat we never knew we wanted, until now.

It's a chic looking bottle, too! 

The limited edition tipple also seems ideal for Wimbledon - as where else is more famous for their strawberries and cream tradition? Or, we’re thinking it will be an absolute game changer to add to an Eton Mess. Or, perhaps a magic ingredient in a strawberry cheesecake? Or, frozen into ice pops for the ultimate frozen treat? Or blended with fresh strawberries for the most incredible milkshake ever? Perhaps we’re getting too excited now…

British summertime drinking may usually associated with one too many ciders at a barbecue, but we think think this is the perfect slightly more sophisticated drink to serve on ice during your next Saturday get-together. The limited edition Baileys costs £15 for a 750 bottle, but is only available while stocks last, so you may want to rush to the supermarket before our next dose of sunshine. The only thing you’ll have to decide on is whether it beats Pimm’s as your tipple of choice, but we won’t judge you if you need to do quite a few taste tests before making your decision...
