Coffee Baileys Ice Cream

Coffee Baileys Ice Cream

My journey with boozy drinks was started just 1 year ago, when my colleague introduced me to Baileys Irish Cream.

You should try, it totally tastes like an upgraded version of coffee. I found one of the perks of being a grown-up meant I could fusion boozy drinks with my ice cream.
