Beachy Baileys Tiki Cocktail

When I enlisted esteemed bartender Matthew Longueville (@stlbarkeep) to develop some cocktails for me using Baileys, I had Baileys Irish Cream in mind. As it turns out, I’m glad that I wasn’t so specific because then he would never have developed this amazing Tiki drink using Baileys Almande. I hadn’t even heard of Almande before he wrote this post for me!

Read on to learn more about Baileys Almande and to watch the video that features the first time I’ve ever even pretended to be a bartender!

Matt and I getting into the Tiki spirit!


In this post, we are going to bring our Baileys to the beach! Tiki drinks are refreshing and all the rage today, so why not use some Baileys in a Tiki Cocktail?!

For this recipe, we are going use their new Almande.

baileys almandeAlmande is a liqueur which blends almond milk with vanilla to create a nutty, balanced spirit. It’s also dairy free so it partners well with citrus, and will not break down or curdle in your cocktail.

A lot of classic Tiki recipes call for an ingredient called Orgeat, a sweet syrup made from almonds, sugar, and rose water or orange flower water. In this recipe, Almande takes the place of Orgeat for a twist on a Mai Tai cocktail.

This cocktail will take you to a tropical island no matter where you are!

Ingredients

  • 1.0 oz Baileys Almande
  • 1.5 oz Plantation Pineapple
  • 0.5 oz Dry Curacao you can also use Triple Sec
  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice
  • 0.5 oz Lemon Juice
  • Pineapple to taste, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Fill a 16 ounce or larger mason jar with ice.

  2. Add all ingredients except pineapple.

  3. Tightly seal the lid so you don’t get covered in booze and juice when you start to shake that bad boy!

  4. Shake for 30 seconds to dilute and properly mix all of the ingredients. 

  5. Remove the lid. Pour all the contents, ice included, into your favorite Tiki mug. If you don’t have a Tiki mug, you can just drink the cocktail out of the mason jar!

  6. Add chunks of pineapple and its leaves to garnish.

Recipe Notes

While any rum would work for this recipe, I recommend Stiggins Fancy Plantation Pineapple. It’s absolutely delicious and the pineapple gives it the tropical pop we’re looking for.
