The world went understandably nuts when Baileys, the delicious liqueur, unveiled a new flavour: Red Velvet Cupcake.
Naturally, everyone was clambering to get their hands on some, however Australians were left searching high and low for a bottle.
The sweet treat has been made in collaboration with a US bakery, and is described as ‘light fluffy red velvet cupcakes folded into Baileys Original Cream’, which will be ‘an utterly irresistible combination perfect for that after-dinner adults-only dessert treat’.
Cellarbrations Berwick, a bottle shop in Melbourne, posted a photo of the bad boys all lined up and their followers went bonkers.
It comes in a 750ml bottle that has a 17 per cent alcohol by volume content – so make sure you drink responsibly. It will set you back $35.99, which isn’t too shabby when it’s going to be your next favourite drink.
One person replied to the photo on Facebook, saying: “I got my Baileys today, and it’s amazing! I don’t think this bottle will last long!”
Salted Caramel Baileys and Strawberries and Cream flavour were launched in supermarkets around the world as a limited edition delight, which joined their staple flavours: Original, Almande, Chocolate Luxe, Coffee and Orange Truffle.
While some might pass it off as a gimmick flavour, it managed to win Double Gold gong at the San Francisco Spirits Competition.
The liqueur can also be used to make some tantalising cocktails, or you can try and make Red Velvet Cupcakes with Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake liqueur. A bakery in the UK managed to pull it off, so there’s no reason you can’t throw all the ingredients together to make something fancy.
