Can I make Baileys Affogato with a different Irish Cream Liqueur?
Baileys is just the most commonly known, but this will work with the lesser know brands just as well. In fact the creamy ice cream can really boosts the slightly cheaper brands by making them thicker and richer tasting.
Just make sure it is chilled completely so it doesn’t melt the ice cream too quickly!
What about a different flavor combination for the Baileys Affogato?
You can switch up the baileys or the ice cream!
Try original baileys poured over salted caramel ice cream or chocolate ice cream.
Or some of the limited edition baileys flavors will work wonderfully here too. Try vanilla ice cream with the coffee flavored baileys or the chocolate cherry baileys over chocolate ice cream!
Or for the pumpkin spice lovers, why not try that over cinnamon ice cream.
The Baileys Affogato possibilities are endless!

This ‘recipe’ has a special place in my heart. 1) because it contains Baileys!!!! and 2) because it once won me a years supply of Baileys!!!! Yup, a years supply of Baileys. Although I can tell you that the Baileys’ promotional department’s idea of a years supply is a little different to my idea of a years supply 😉 Not that I am complaining!! Free Baileys is free Baileys 🙂
Bailey’s were running a competition on their Facebook page. You had to comment with your favourite way to enjoy Baileys and who you would enjoy it with. My winning entry was “I enjoy Baileys poured over vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with crumbled up chocolate flakes” Then I tagged Stew. Everyone else was suggesting cakes and frosting ideas and cocktails, but I don’t use Baileys that way. I drink it neat over ice or I pour it over ice cream. Neat over ice wasn’t going to win any competitions! So I went with the ice cream option and WON!!!!
