Grey Goose

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

“I didn’t approach this as stripping out the impurities – I never let them get in there in the first place,” said Francois Thibault, the maker and master of Grey Goose.

Grey Goose is made with only the finest of ingredients, that give the finished product the exceptional taste from which it is known by. Grey goose uses the highest grade of wheat grown in France; the same wheat that is traditionally used in bread and pastry making. After the wheat is transformed into a high-proofed spirit, it is distilled once using a continuous column distillation process, ensuring the quality of the wheat remains. The spirit is then transported to the Cognac region of France, where it is combined with artesian spring water that is naturally filtered through 500 feet of limestone, making it remarkedly pure for blending. Prior to bottling, each batch is taste tested and approved by Francois Thibault and tasting experts, to ensure every bottle is perfection. How can you make the most of your Grey Goose? We found unique cocktails you’re sure to love.

Heaven Hill Old Style Bourbon

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Kentucky is the birthplace of bourbon, crafting 95% of the world’s supply. With the optimal mix of climate, conditions and pure limestone water, it is understandable how the state has become known for its high-quality bourbons drank around the world. Among its top producers include the Heaven Hill brands, which has been perfecting its brews since the end of Prohibition. Heaven Hill was founded in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Shapira family. At the time, the family had no brands, no available stocks of whiskey, and was starting at the peak ofHeaven-Hill-Bourbon-287720-L_grande the Great Depression. Today, Heaven Hill’s is still family owned with a diversified product offering of whiskeys, liqueurs, vodkas, rums, and more popular brands such as Evans Williams Bourbon, Burnett’s Vodka, and Admiral Nelson’s Rum.

One of its best-known bourbon brews is its Old Style bourbon. It is named after the spring that flows through the historic Bernheim Distillery grounds. Typically brewed for four years in oak barrels, the final product yields a pale golden color. When opening the bottle, the aromas can be bold with bold scents of nutmeg, cinnamon, and sweet fruits. On the nose, it can have a bit of an alcohol bite, but it is not too strong or complex. On the palate, it may taste more complex. It tastes much like its smell, with spice and caramel sweetness. The bourbon has a medium body and finish, with an overall good balance. Its alcohol bite can be toned down over ice, but also good in your favorite bourbon cocktails such as Old Fashions and Manhattans.

The Heaven Hill brand is the seventh largest independent, family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country. It is also the second largest holder of aging bourbon whiskey, with over 1 million barrels in inventory. It’s commitment to quality, integrity, and consistency has given the brand a top-notch reputation for its products. If you’re wanting for an everyday bourbon at a bargain price, Heaven’s Hill Old Style Bourbon is the one for you.

O.F.C. 1980 Bourbon Coming To Indianapolis

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Buffalo Trace Distillery has announced that it will release three unique vintage-dated bourbons honoring the O.F.C. Distillery. Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Christened the distillery back in 1870 and originally named it the Old Fire Copper Distillery. This historic landmark is known today as the Buffalo Trace Distillery had the most state of the art features like copper fermentation vats, column still, and a steam heating system that is still used in the aging warehouses.

200 bottles of bourbon dating back to 1980, 1982 and 1983 will be released and offered
exclusively to non-profit organizations at no charge to raise money for their causes. And here in Indianapolis, the Indiana Historical Society was lucky enough to get bottle 65/100 of the 1980 Vintage!

bottle-canisterThe packaging for O.F.C. matches the brilliance of the whiskey with lead free crystal bottles featuring detailed fluting engraved into the mold. Glass artisans cut the shoulder facets using equipment created exclusively for Buffalo Trace Distillery. Each bottle is then manually polished to achieve maximum glass brilliance before in-laying cut copper lettering to spell out “O.F.C.” on the front. A paper label is then hand applied below with the vintage prominently noted, along with a label on the back of the bottle noting the milestones for the vintage year of the bottle.

The 1980 label memorializes the U.S. Ice Hockey team’s stunning win over the Soviet Union, along with pop culture happenings and Ronald Reagan’s presidential election.

This is the second time Buffalo Trace Distillery has partnered with non-profit organizations to raise money. In 2011, the Distillery gave away 174 bottles of its Millennium Barrel, the last bourbon barrel filled on the last day of the last century. In total more than $150,000 was raised for various charities across the United States, with the top organization raising more than $7,000 for their cause.

We are assisting the Indiana Historical Society to organize a bourbon tasting on February
17th where this bottle and other items will be involved in silent auctions. It should be a great evening to raise money for the Education of Indiana History. Watch our social media and IHS’s website for more info.

Patrón Reposado

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The history of tequila is one with many hills and valleys. The spirit began its journey in the public eye as a bad tasting product used solely for the purpose of becoming intoxicated very quickly. However, Ed Brown took this image of tequila in his own hands and followed in the footsteps of Grey Goose to show that it can be enjoyed in more ways than just a shot. Through a switch in marketing tactics and making sure it had a clear presence with certain celebrities, tequila, and Patron in particular grew to be one of if not the most popular spirit in modern social culture. From Chamillionaire to Blondie, Patrón is known to be a favorite vice for the rich and famous.

The tequila itself actually began in the hands of Casa Siete Leguas, one of Mexico’s oldest distilleries. From there the recipe changed hands a few times until it landed at its current home in 1989, and is named for its most popular product, The Patrón Spirits Company.

The distillery uses the very same methods that have been utilized since the dawn of tequila. Because any “tequila” produced outside of the region of Tequila, Mexico can only downloadbe called an agave spirit, Patrón is obviously produced in the aforementioned area; the city is called Atontonilco. The process for producing the infamous Patrón tequila begins with the Jimadors (a Mexican farmer who harvest agave) with a tool called a coa. From there, they strip away the exterior to reveal the heart, the piña (if you like piña colaaadas,
and getting caaaught in the rain). After the piñas have been baked in small brick ovens, they are crushed by a two-ton volcanic stone Tahona wheel and a roller mill. (Siete Leguas actually uses a horse drawn stone that goes round and round to crush the cooked piñas, Patrón has moved past this practice to a more man made maneuver.) The resulting product is then fermented for three days, distilled, then aged for varying lengths, ranging from two months to seven years.

The tequila we will be discussing today is at the first end of the spectrum. Patrón Reposado is aged approximately nine months in a French oak (Allier) barrel. This particular choice of wood really comes out in the taste, but we will get to that later.

First, as always, is the nose. The smell is truly what one would expect and then some. We are first greeted in that beginning waft with the familiar smell of agave, and then a calming vanilla swirls through. The first impression of this product is very warm and inviting.

The taste itself is where one can really taste that sweet and cooked agave with the woody undertones from the French oak barrel. It is so pleasant and smooth that it took some serious self-control to keep from just downing the glass instead of doing a real tasting. It is truly delicious and is meant to be tasted, not thrown back.

This all being said, we highly recommend that you reserve your own bottle of Patrón Reposado from your favorite local Payless!

High West Midwinter Night’s Dram

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

High West Distillery is located in Park City, Utah. Nestles among rolling hills, it was founded in 2009 by a former biochemist. David Perkins went on a tour of the Maker’s Mark distillery in Loretto, Kentucky when it dawned on him. The fermentation and distilling process are very similar to his own work as a biochemist. He and his family relocated to Utah in 2009 tolarge_midwinternightsdramtrimmed open the state’s first legal distillery since 1870. The distillery began small, with just a 250-gallon still in a historic livery stable and garage. Since then, High West won Whiskey Pioneer of the Year in 2011 from Whiskey Advocate America, and now operates out of a 1600-gallon copper pot still. They also opened an educational whiskey tasting, pairing, and tour portion of their distillery that is a must-visit.

The product we are highlighting from this particular distillery is their Midwinter Night’s Dram, a highly appropriate choice for this time of the year as winter is upon us in full force
at the moment. The name of course comes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. The best fix for a cold winter day is a hearty rye, of course! And even better is one that puts you in a dream like state.

The nose of this particular product is a very well balanced mix of spice and fruit. Swirling vanilla and plum are the most evident by far and provide a warm and welcoming aroma that makes you want to dive right in! The second whiff comes with hints of caramel, and cinnamon.

The taste is what one would describe as a “proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.” This is the perfect bottle to take off of the shelf for your holiday party. Even better though, it makes the perfect gift! Reserve yours today from one of our convenient locations.

Weller Pants

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about these Weller Pants on Twitter and Facebook. So, we thought we’d talk about them here as well! These awesome (and cute) little holiday pants contain the Weller Special Reserve and Weller Antique. These two bottles will be the subjects of our blog this week!

weller-pantsFirst, as always, we would talk a bit about the distillery. Having some background is always a great way to enter the topic of any product. However, we have already talked about this one! W.L. Weller is a brand of wheated bourbon whiskey, currently produced at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Our blog  on Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection—Infrared went through their history, and you are welcome to read about that here.

What sets Weller apart right off the bat is its initial components. Like other bourbons, it is distilled from a mash of at least 51% corn, but the secondary grain is wheat, most bourbons use rye.

Now, let’s get to the review. The W.L. Weller Special Reserve nose is strong, the first wave isweller-special-reserve definitely that of alcohol. However, if you stick around for just another second, it is sweet, with notes of apple, honey, and vanilla—a beautiful combination. The palate is where the wheat really makes a difference, as one can expect. The vanilla sticks around and now we can taste caramel. The taste is smooth and has a nice finish.

Next is the Weller Antique. First we’ll talk about the nose, as always. Our first whiff is that of spice, lots of spice. You can tell that this will be a warm one. The layers come across as nutmeg, cinnamon, and deeper is vanilla as well as butterscotch. The palate feels a bit light weller-old-antique_0and thin at first. Which was incredibly surprising, given the impression it made through the nose. However, the finish is larger than life and even better with a second sip. The flavor, again, is sweet due to that wheat as opposed to rye, but the taste of the alcohol is strong enough to remind you it is definitely a Weller bourbon.

Both of these bottles are an absolute must have for any whiskey bourbon enthusiast. The bottles are available for purchase at your favorite local Payless, and you can reserve your Weller Pants today for the perfect holiday gift! (It can be a gift for yourself 🙂 )

Woodford Releases 2016 Master’s Collection Brandy Cask Finish

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Kentucky is the home of many famous distilleries but the topic of this week’s blog is one of its smallest and oldest. Nestled amongst rolling hills, the Woodford Reserve Distillery was founded in the early 1800s by Elijah Pepper. It was here that whiskey making practices, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation, used today were actually developed. Master Distiller James Christopher Crow was the man behind the development of these practices, and we owe him many of the perfected products we so love today.

The Woodford Reserve Distillery was also one of the first to utilize copper pot stills. You can see these and other iconic pieces of history (such as a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters) on site today. In addition to these wrmc_2016_web-1-152x300founding pieces of the practices of distilling, you can see one of the only heated cycled barrelhouses in the world. This is particularly incredible because heated cycled barrelhouses ensure that “every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor. Woodford Reserve distillery is standing history, and riddled with the culture of Kentucky distilling.

Now, onto the star of this post, the Woodford Release 2016 Master’s Collection Brandy Finish. This is the latest release of Woodford Distillery’s Master’s Collection series. As always, let’s start with the aroma. It’s sweet, the first notes to hit you are that of chocolate, followed by dried cranberries and spice. We’re already think this would be an incredible bottle for the holidays!

Next is the initial taste. The first sip is filled with toffee, hazelnut, and a little maple syrup. Its warmth matches its amber color and is everything we could have hoped for and more. The finish is even better, with long lasting notes of warm caramel and nutmeg. It had us reaching for our glass again immediately!

This bottle is nothing short of incredible, and truly upholds the Woodford Reserve name. The last item on our docket is to make sure you reserve your own bottle from your favorite Payless so you can get a chance to try it, too! Trust us, you will not regret it.

Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection Number 1

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This particular bottle that we are going to be talking about today is cognac at its best. I think Hennessy themselves said it best, “it is the first in a series of rare and limited offerings”. Yann Fillioux is a 7th generation Master Blender and the conductor behind this masterpiece, as well as many others from Hennessy. Unlike other cognacs, which strive for consistency, the Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection Number 1 is completely unique and a coveted rarity.

hennessy-master-blenders-selection-no1-cognac_1Hennessy is actually called Jas Hennessy & Co. and its headquarters are located in Cognac, France. They sell about 50 million bottles a year worldwide, which equates to 40 percent of the world’s cognac. Oddly enough, Hennessy was founded by an Irishman named Richard Hennessy in 1765. It is also the world’s largest luxury brand, as it is owned in part by Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. With nearly 30 products and many being limited edition, it’s no surprise that it’s such a popular and coveted cognac.

Now, let’s get down to business. This particular bottle is crafted to be particularly aromatic. It’s scent is bold, but with delicate notes to follow. The first wave is of strong oak and grilled almonds while the second of spicy undertones. The palate is alive with candied apricots, those same delicate spices like clove and cinnamon, followed by earthy oak as a strong finish that will leave you reaching for your glass again.

This limited edition product is unique and can never be duplicated. Its rarity is enough to provoke a collector to reach for their wallet, but the taste and aroma are even more enrapturing than the lore of Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection Number 1. Be sure to reserve your bottle at your favorite local Payless, and let us know what you think!

Lagavulin 8 Year

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Our subject for this week is the coveted Lagavulin 8 year Limited Edition.

This particular bottle is near and dear to my heart as I am an avid lover of my family’s Anglosaxon roots and the show Parks and Rec.
ron-swanson-lagavulin-300x223The Lagavulin distillery is located in Islay, Scotland and it is also the drink of choice for Ron Swanson of Parks and Rec. Any fans out there for either of those things? (If so, you must watch this video, it’s a great video even if you are not, actually.)

Even if you’re not and have had no idea what I was talking about up until now, Lagavulin 8 year is absolutely choice. Lagavulin is world renowned for more reasons than one, and completely deserving of the reputation is has received.

It was founded in 1816, and actually translates from the Gaelic (indigenous Celtic language of Scotland) to lag a’mhuilin, meaning “hollow by the mill”. Which perfectly represents the 1024px-lagavulin_-_entrancedistillery itself. It is a quaint and beautiful building located just a hop and a skip from Port Ellen, Laphroaig, and Ardberg, all of which are also incredible distilleries.

This particular bottle, Lagavulin 8 yr., is very rare. It is not even listed as a product 99% of the time due to its rarity. Which is where we come in, we want to provide you with an up close and personal experience with this coveted product.

We definitely suggest this be taken neat in a whiskey nosing glass.

lagavulin-8-year-oldFirst off, as always, lets start with the nose. This may seem strange to say, but it seems clear that it is from the beautiful coast of Scotland. Right off the bat, there are notes of clean, fresh milk and light tea. Followed by chocolate and lemon, like a fresh spring morning with breakfast by the ocean. It is romanticism and poetry in a glass.

Next is the palate. Lagavulin never disappoints but, if it’s possible, this one was even more bold and beautiful than usual. It is a full on Lagavulin taste with a mix of charred chocolate and maritime flavors.

We definitely suggest ordering a bottle of this at your favorite local Payless and be sure to check back next week for our newest feature! Slán go fóill! (Goodbye in Gaelic)

Booker’s Holiday Multi-Pack

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This week we are featuring not one, not two, not even three products, but FOUR! Yes, we are upping the ante, bourbon lovers. Our star this week is the Booker’s Holiday Multi-Pack featuring four incredible bottles.

The first is Dot’s Batch. “The second batch of Booker’s” is concocted from barrels aged from January of 2007 to February of the following year. The nose on this batch is particularly memorable and could even match the taste of your favorite everyday bourbon! It has a delicate balance of vanilla and citrus notes. The taste combines these two flavors and maximizes them to a warm oaky finish.

picture1Next up is the Center Cut batch. Named for its special part of the aging rack house that the original Booker aged his favorite bourbon in. Fred Noe says “The barrels selected have a nice chestnut color that reminds me of the beautiful thoroughbred horses that race here in Kentucky” making it a batch near and dear to him and his father, Booker. The nose on this particular batch has quite a bit of oak from these same barrels that give it a warm and toasted scent. The flavor is heavy and intense that leaves a lasting, sweet finish.

Third is Maw Maw’s batch. This was named for Fred Noe’s Great Grandmother (Booker’s grandmother), who played an important role in his father’s life. Reminiscent of warm evenings, the vanilla and toasted nuts provide a warm, well balanced taste. Its simple structure is a perfect reflection of a grandmothers unending love.

Last but not least is Noe Secret. Named in honor of Noe’s father, the original Booker, this batch is all about the honest approach he had to creating his namesake bourbon. Booker was always open and spoke his mind. He kept no secrets from anyone and believed that honesty was the best policy, in all corners of his life. This batch has the rich flavors of vanilla that Booker’s Bourbon is known for, followed by hints of cherry. It has been called “a mega bourbon with the structure that Booker’s is known for” by the Booker’s Bourbon Roundtable.

Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

birthday_2016The Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is a very special bottle that only comes but once a year. The reason this bottle is annual and not released more often is because it is brewed specifically to be released on a particular date. This date being the birthday of the founder. On September 2nd every year, master distiller Chris Morris crafts the Birthday Bourbon that is vintage-dated and particularly fantastic for this momentous occasion. It is hand selected from one specific day of production. It’s a one of a kind bottle that is essential for any bourbon aficionado. The uniqueness of this bourbon could not be overstated. From the fact that it is only released once a year to the fact that it is released on the day of the founder’s birthday, and that it is hand-picked for its flavor and character to reflect the special day it is released. It is the ultimate in rare, handcrafted bourbon. This is also the fifteen year anniversary of this particular practice, making it even more special for bourbon enthusiasts. It has received unprecedented acclaim and both national and international whisky honors.

Now, let’s talk nose. The scent of the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is complex. Among the notes are cinnamon and spiked oak. They balance each other in a hearty dance between deep and sweet. Additionally, there is a hint of nutty chocolate and dark caramel. They do a similar tango that balances out this incredible concoction. The taste is full of mulled fruit character and spice, along with notes of bright citrus peel. It is warm and toasty in flavor with the perfect amount of fruit and citrus bite.

This bourbon is in limited supply so be sure to get it before it’s gone! We are hosting a contest that will go until October 20th. On the morning of October 21st, we will announce the winners. We have twelve bottles ready to go of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon and if you answer the trivia questions right, you may earn the right to purchase! Details here

Seasonal Favorites

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

We have a very special treat for you this week! We will be highlighting not one, not two, but THREE items! The first of these is the Black Forest Decadent Red Wine by Cupcake, followed by the Captain Morgan Jack O Blast, and last but not least, Ballast Point Pumpkin Down.

That’s right, we’re going seasonal people.

With temperatures dropping and the days growing shorter, we must turn to alcohol. KIDDING! But it does help to have something delicious to focus out attention on. From pairings to drink recipes, the avenues are endless when these three items get together. I know you’re all getting antsy for me to get to our products for this week, so let’s get down to it!

Wine, oh sweet, delicious, red wine. There is no better time for this (in my very biased opinion) than during these chilly months. We say goodbye to the summer days of zinfandel and sunrises, and hello to cozy sweaters, crackling fires, and savory red wine. Now that is an evening that I’d be fine spending snowed in!

This particular wine is sweeter than most reds, I mean, the label is Cupcake so we can’t expect anything too dry. I personally welcome this sweetness, I mean we’re approaching Halloween for goodness sakes. Adults can have a sweet tooth too, right? Well I say adults deserve to have fun, and if that means pouring a tall glass of liquid sunsets then sign me up! Especially if the dark crimson color matches your vampire lipstick on October first, hello, no need to reapply!! I can definitely get behind that one.

Let’s stay on topic, we have THREE products to get through.

The color, like I said, is a perfect inky, crimson. Deep and inviting at first sight, its scent is even better (hard to believe, I know!). This wine is a blend, and when I say blend, I mean BLEND. It is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel (hey summer), Petite Verdot, and Petite Sirah. See? Told you it was a blend. It may sound like someone got mad at their liquor cabinet and blender at the same time, but I promise that Cupcake is genius for this combination.

Now, back to our senses. The smell is dark berry, perfect for a chilly October night. The blackberries and rich raspberries provide a luscious cushion in your first sip between the Zinfandel and Cabernet. The floral aroma is evident on your second whiff, it is easy to miss so be sure to pay attention to this siren’s call. She pulls you in with nothing short of a drowning devotion to her smooth and smoky power.

Captain Jack O Blast on the other hand provides the friendly and familiar smell and taste of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. This limited edition treat is filled to the brim with every delicious part that rum has to offer, mixed in with just the right amount of seasonal sweetness we all crave during fall. The taste lies somewhere between the spices of cinnamon in a pumpkin drink and the spices of rum we all know and love. The smell is pungent in the best way possible, imagine a liquefied pumpkin pie. A heavy mahogany laced with the sweet and delicate aroma of vanilla and nutmeg. With its amber, honey color, the taste is reflective of that warmth which makes it a welcome addition to any liquor cabinet. Mix it with a little coffee for a perfect cozy treat for any chilly night.

Now, beer and pumpkin, that isn’t a combination as easy to make successful. But, Ballast 02-beers-primary-image-pumpkindownPoint’s Pumpkin Down knocked this one out of the park. “A pumpkin ale that bucks the trend” is what they had to say on this product and it could not be more accurate. This is no attempt at a pumpkin pie beer, no no no. This is roasted pumpkin with a caramel and toffee backsplash. It feels like they made it for those who would rather spend their October nights by the bonfire instead of the fireplace. You can taste the malt and earth in it, softened with the slightest hint of spice that you would want in any good beer. You taste ale with every sip, but this heavy flavor is brought up in the most loving way to reflect the romance of the fall season by culminating a trusting relationship between the hops, cinnamon, and roasted pumpkin flavor. We want to recommend to you that you save this one for a night of risotto with butternut squash or a French onion soup with French bread. Don’t waste this ale, friends, savor it.

All three of these products are available at your favorite Payless. Be sure to reserve yours soon or your fall will be a bit less magical without these liquid autumn concoctions!

 

Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Bailey’s Irish Cream is infamous for its ability to combine alcohol and sweetness so flawlessly. Beginning in 1971, Bailey’s was of course founded in Ireland and introduced the very first Irish cream to the world in 1974. It’s not just the whiskey in the bottle that’s Irish, but the cream as well! It is produced by a company called Glanbia and has been for over thirty years. The company even claims that their product is so flawless, it will retain its taste for twenty-four full months from the moment it is made. Refrigerated or not, opened or closed, etc.

Don’t even try to deny it, you love pumpkin spice. We all do. No matter how much we try to deny it, it’s delicious. However, do you know what’s even more delicious? Bailey’s twist on this simg_flavors_baileys_pumpkin_spiceeasonal favorite!

Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice Limited Edition Irish Cream is a must have this fall. The notes are of the familiar toasty variety. Cinnamon flutters through your palette as the warm pumpkin and coffee flavors layer over each other in a swirl of sweetness. Bailey’s is smooth, delicious, and comforting to begin with. Add chilly weather and some pumpkin to that, well you’ve got a winner!

Bailey’s has several great recommendations for creating some cozy cocktails with this seasonal bottle. The first is none other than the Pumpkin Spice Latte! It is quite simple and involves combining two ounces of Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice, with one and a half ounces of coffee, and one ounce of milk. It can be served warm or over ice. We would like to recommend sipping on this next to a fire with a warm cinnamon bun. Doesn’t that sound incredible?

Next up is the Old Fashioned Pumpkin. This is comprised of just one and a half ounces of Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice and three-quarters of an ounce of bourbon! Shake it up with ice and serve. This classic would be best consumed with a delicious plate of Thanksgiving favorites like turkey, sweet potatoes, and stuffing!

Now, here’s the thing, Bailey’s has so many more recipes for this concoction of theirs, but don’t feel limited to their suggestions! There are about a million and one things to be made from this sweet seasonal treat. It won’t last long so be sure to hurry and grab a bottle (or seven) from your favorite Payless. Happy sipping!
