I don't know if you get Baileys outside of the UK, but it's a whiskey drink with cream.

I've come up with my own vegan alternative, which I think is better than the original, even if I do say so myself!

You need whiskey, vanilla soya milk, soya cream and maple syrup.

Decide how much whiskey you'd like based on how alcoholic you want the drink to be, and pour it into your glass/bottle. Top up with vanilla soya milk until your glass/bottle is just over three quarters full. Add soya cream until your glass/bottle is nearly full, and follow with a generous splash of maple syrup. Stir/shake well and drink up!

It's important to drink it within a few days of being made, otherwise it will go a bit funny. Or, you could freeze it to make it last longer!

I am making nicely packaged bottles for a few friends and family for Christmas this year - I will post pictures when they're done!

Nice!  I don't drink much, but one of my favorite drinks has Baileys in it.  (And yeah, we have it in the US too.)  I can't ever have it because 1) I'm lactose intolerant and 2) I avoid milk and dairy like the plague...but this one, I think I can do...thanks!  Cheesy

This doesn't really contribute but:

In my town, it's customary to do cement mixers on folks birthdays. It's especially great when a person doesn't know what it is when they do the shot.

For those of you who don't know, it's 1 shot Bailey's, 1 shot lime juice. Not mixed. Take the shot of baileys, keep it in your mouth, take the shot of lime, and swish it around. There is absolutely no way for me to accurately describe the sensation. It's like a curdling. Tastes best when you use sweetened lime juice, the stuff you'll find next to the grenadine in the liquor section.

I wonder if a soy base would accomplish the same thing...

Thank you!  My partner uses Bailey's creamer for his coffee because it does not have all the junck that the others do (he is vegetarian) and I have wondered if this is how the alcoholic version was made.  Sounds like I need to try it!

Soy milk will make buttermilk like you describe (making in your mouth).  Sounds interesting.
