This past weekend I was out for a drink with two of the bestfriends anyone could ask for.
I tend to change my drinks with the season. Spring brings a nice crisp Pino Gris, summertime spells Mojitos and fall ushers in a full-bodied Shiraz. But when the air gets a chill and the white stuff starts falling from the heavens, I have only one thought on my mind ... hot chocolate with Baileys. And whipped cream. Because everything is more fun with whipped cream. Heh.
My winter beverage of choice warms your bones and satisfies your sweet tooth in one delicious cup.
At least that is what I thought until I found this in the store today:
Baileys with a "Hint of Caramel". Caramel.
I realize that this has probably been around for eleventy hundred years, demonstrating I don't spend nearly enough time skulking around my local liquor store. But stumbling on this sweet find made my day. My week. Well, quite frankly, this made my season.
Off to light a fire and wrap my hands around a big mug of hot chocolate with Caramel Baileys. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm ..... wanna join me?
