Baileys Almande Refresh[2][5]The first day of spring is often disappointing. It’s usually cold, cloudy and not spring-like at all. Fortunately, Baileys has some news that will lift our spirits.

They released their Almande Almond Milk Liqueur just in time for spring. This naturally light tasting spirit is a dairy-free, gluten-free and certified vegan liqueur (perfect for all you health nuts). And it gets even better: it boasts the same calorie count as an average 5 ounce glass of wine. Its blend of vanilla and the nutty flavors of real almond milk creates an incredibly versatile treat that’s available now!

Don’t worry about having to concoct some complex beverage using this new liqueur, we’ve got the recipe for their signature Baileys Almande Refresh right here for ya (a cocktail that any coconut water lover will surely enjoy):

Baileys Almande Refresh

–  3 oz. Baileys Almande
–  3 oz. Vita Cocoa Coconut Water

We’re picturing it now- a nice cold Almande Refresh in hand, the sun shining, the temperature reaching 60 degrees…

Looking to kick up a notch? Try their Spring Time Lemonade, a crisp medley of fresh lemon and apple juices.
