I love Bailey’s and after going vegan I missed it for a long time, so I was really happy when I got a bottle of homemade coconut milk Bailey’s for my birthday two years ago. To be precise, what I got was Bailey’s and vegan “Mett”, a raw minced pork specialty that people in Berlin like to eat on bread rolls and call that “Hackepeterbrötchen”. The vegan “Mett” was made of rice and I thought it was really sweet that some of my omni friends had looked up vegan recipes and stood in the kitchen to give me these things for my birthday.
As “Mett” has always made me run for the hills, I unfortunately couldn’t make friends with the vegan version either, but the Bailey’s completely convinced me. Especially when I went on ohsheglows.com and tried Angela’s recipe myself a few days later, and not only it was quick and easy and only had 5 ingredients, it turned out perfectly well and the taste was fantastic. I added a little vanilla to the recipe and used coconut sugar instead of sucanat, because I find that even more delicious.
And not just me. I filled it in a pretty decanter that I presented at a party the next day, and it quickly made friends. People said, after just one zip, “oh my god that is better than the real one”, and I overheard them make drunk plans to sell this vegan Bailey’s online.
Meanwhile the company Bailey’s has launched an almond edition, which I think is a great idea and will not say no when it is offered to me, but to be honest? I personally prefer this one here!
