What is Irish Cream?
It’s a cream liqueur (so yes, it is alcoholic), made with Irish whiskey and cream. There are usually other ingredients included as well to give it the perfect sweet flavor. Most people know it as the popular brand, Bailey’s. It’s often used to make Irish coffee, but it’s just perfect for this milkshake too.
