A Baileys Café Is Popping Up In London – And It's Completely Free
Good news, Baileys lovers, as a café dedicated entirely to your favourite creamy alcoholic drink will be popping up in London. And, better still, all of the treats inside are free. FREE.
The café will actually be serving up its new dairy-free version of the drink, Baileys Almande, which is also vegan, gluten free and only 67 calories per serving - almost half that of a measure of normal Baileys, which has 130 calories per serving.
The Vegan Treat Shop by Baileys Almande will be popping up in Soho Square on Friday 23 March between 1pm and 7pm.
On the menu you'll find five vegan takes on classic desserts, all of which will contain that brand new dairy-free Baileys. Think sticky toffee pudding made by London baker Lily Vanilli, Eton mess from Nonna's Gelato and much more deliciousness.
Each person will receive a free ticket, which will let them taste one of the five desserts. Each will also come paired with a glass of the new drink on ice - which means that it's a strictly 18+ vibe, FYI.
Baileys Almande has been knocking about for a little while, having been initially released on a trial basis in North America - but at that time it wasn't vegan, as the original drink contained beeswax.
But following increasing interest from the ever-expanding vegan community, Baileys bosses decided to make it a fully-fledged animal-friendly liqueur.
"We are excited to welcome spring with Baileys Almande, which offers the same quality and delicious flavour that people love about Baileys, but now in a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan option that we know many are thrilled to enjoy," said Alex Tomlin, SVP of Scotch Whisky & Reserve Brands at Diageo North America.
He added: "Baileys Almande is delicious, light and easily mixed with refreshing Vita Coco coconut water, which makes it the perfect warm weather treat to enjoy responsibly."
Almond milk Baileys and coconut water? We know - peak 2018, right?
According to the Baileys website, the alcoholic almond drink blends 'sweet almond oil and almond essence (from crushed almonds), cane sugar and purified water with a touch of real vanilla'.
The drink was then launched officially in the UK, with bottles dropping in supermarkets just in time for Mother's Day.
If you haven't had a chance to drink it yet, this pop-up might just be the thing. Not only do you get to sample the new version of the popular Irish cream drink, but you also get a free pud with it, too. Win-win.
