Baileys Releases Vegan Almond Milk Liqueur
Iced coffee and dessert martinis just got a vegan upgrade.
The Vegan Herald shares the news that Baileys now makes an almond milk based liqueur. The poetically named “Almande” is made from sweet almond oil, almond essence (extracted from crushed almonds), cane sugar, purified water, and vanilla. I have a feeling you could easily sneak a thermos full of it anywhere and pretend it’s one of the healthy designer nut milks everyone is so crazy about.
Well-known for their very non-vegan Irish whiskey and cream-based liqueurs, the release of this product is another in the long list of companies taking note of vegan customers. With sites like Barnivore making it easier for vegans to sort through which alcoholic beverages contain animal products and which do not, we still hold out hope that soon all well-known brands like Baileys will have vegan-friendly options.
Baileys bills the new product as a light tasting spirit, and recommends serving it over crushed ice, mixing it with coconut water, or blending it into a frozen frappe (recipes below). Simultaneously being gluten free, this liqueur is ready to party with a bigger crowd.
