I owe thanks to my darling friend Katharine for this dairy free Homemade Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice liqueur. It was after she Whatsapped me a photo of her original version and (after I rolled my tongue back in and closed my mouth) I decided that I too must have access to this delicious sounding tipple. I’ve since realised that we can actually get it here in the UK for a limited time only but that still doesn’t solve the dairy issue.
I’ve made dairy free Homemade Bailey’s original before with much success and it’s proven to be a rather popular post. In fact the post went live at the beginning of December last year. Quite simply, I couldn’t go another Christmas without my favourite cream liqueur and once I’d tried the Bailey’s Almande™ new drink (adding to my disappointment) I knew I had to make my own version and stop relying on someone else to do it for me.
Please note that I really like the Almande™ drink, it’s a lovely light cream liqueur but for me it’s more on par with a Pina colada, not a thick luxurious creamy liqueur like Bailey’s original. The taste isn’t the same either, it’s really a different drink altogether but made by the trademark Bailey’s.
Anyhoo, now that I’ve made this I’ve got plans for more flavours and (hic) really don’t mind doing all the recipe development necessary (hic) until I get it absolutely perfect (hic).
In fact, once you’ve made your own Bailey’s the choices are endless, pour over dairy free ice cream as a treat or use to make my Gluten Free Bailey’s Baked Cheesecake, simply swap the ricotta cheese for a dairy free cream cheese.
