Professional mixologists have long created cocktails using Baileys because the smooth, creamy liqueur pairs perfectly with an array of other spirits. In fact, with eleven flavor varieties available, there are dozens of delicious recipes you can use to make Baileys cocktails.
Are Baileys and Kahlua Interchangeable?
Baileys and Kahlua both complement a freshly brewed cup of coffee, but there are distinct differences between the two liqueurs.
Baileys is creamy and derives its taste from cream, cocoa, and Irish Whiskey. Kahlua is dark without the creaminess of Baileys and is made with 100 percent arabica coffee, rum, and sugar.
While acceptable, swapping out Baileys for Kahlua in a cocktail recipe will produce quite different taste results.
