Caramel Bailey-tini


With the big green only a handful of days away I decided that now would be a good time to share with you one of my favorite drinks. Like I have stated before, I am not a huge drinker but for some reason I have a weak spot for Baileys Irish Cream. This recipe came about about a year ago when the Mr. and I were in NY visiting family for the holidays. The Mr. was making himself a dirty martini and my best friend had brought over these really cute martini glasses so that we could have a few drinks to toast to the new year. Well, not wanting to be left out of the fun I told the Mr. to make me a Bailey-tini, which of course got me a confused look of "what is in that?". So the three of us got to work playing with the ratio until we got it to where we liked it.



I am sure that you noticed that I added a backdrop for the picture. Now, I don't have a high tech camera nor do I had a master's degree in food photography so all of my pictures are normally taken at my kitchen table mere seconds before I dive into it. However, with St. Patrick's Day being one of my favorite holidays I decided to show this post a little TLC. This is one of my top favorite drinks so of course when you factor that in, how could I not make it special?



  • 1 oz good quality Vodka
  • 2 oz Caramel Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 4 ice cubes
  • square of chocolate
  • shaker
  1. With a pairing knife make a slit in the chocolate wide enough so that it will sit on the rim of your martini glass; set aside.
  2. Pour the vodka, bailey's and ice cubes in the shaker and shake for about 5-10 seconds just to get the drink really cold. Strain into martini glass and garnish with chocolate.

If a drink could be scrumptious than this is it! Love the special touch with the chocolate square.
