NEW YORK — The vacation vibes are ready when you are, at-home, on your couch, from your balcony, in your backyard, or even on a coveted weekend getaway. Baileys is gearing up to deliver a delicious addition to your next staycation with the launch of Baileys Colada, a new, limited time offering that tastes just like a tropical vacation in a bottle perfect for enjoying anytime, anywhere this season, from beach brunches to backyard barbecues! Made with Irish Cream and blended with the rich flavors of creamy coconut and sweet pineapple, Baileys Colada makes indulging in everyone’s favorite vacation cocktail easier than ever from wherever you may be.
To celebrate the launch, Baileys is partnering with actress, producer and best-selling author La La Anthony; an entertainer who’s always eager to escape to her number one vacation spot: the beach. When she can’t physically make her way to those enviable white sand beaches, the new Baileys Colada is helping to recreate those vacation vibes from home – she’s even crafted her own signature cocktail aptly named the Baileys Co-La La. Follow along as La La demonstrates how to make her Baileys Colada signature cocktail because who wouldn’t want to learn from the vacation enthusiast herself? Pro tip: you don’t need to be a pro to make your own!
