A sophisticated milkshake for adults. Combine Baileys Strawberries and Cream with some vanilla ice cream to make this delicious cocktail. A milkshake for grown-ups that makes a perfect dessert! Check out the recipe for a Baileys Strawberry Milkshake and learn a few different ways to enjoy this drink.
The Origin of Bailey’s
In comparison to drinks like vodka, gin, or whiskey, Baileys is quite new to the market. The idea was created by David Dand in 1974. However, the process of actually creating the drink we now all love today took three years. He wanted to create a perfect blend of Irish cream and Irish whiskey, which when you look at the consistencies of those ingredients, not the most straightforward task.
Baileys pride themselves for their Irish roots and therefore keep the entire production process in Ireland. They also only use small Irish farmers as their suppliers and make sure the cows are continually happy and well-fed. What more could you ask for?
Ever since the first production of Baileys, more and more various flavors have been created by this company. That’s why we’re using the Baileys Strawberries and Cream for our delicious cocktail today!
Now, you may be wondering why we’re using fresh fruits to add to this delicious strawberry milkshake. The reason behind this is that no flavor compares to that of fresh ingredients. Strawberries add the perfect flavor to this Baileys strawberry milkshake.
Fruits are natural sweeteners and are full of vitamins, color, and flavor. When you buy a bottle of syrup or a fruity candy, they never taste like the fresh fruits you can buy at the market. Within this strawberry milkshake, I want you to experience the real fruity flavor and texture of the strawberries.
As an added bonus, these berries also add extra color to the shake, making it a pastel pink color. It’s perfect for a hot summer’s day.
When to Drink
There are plenty of moments to drink this cocktail. However, since it’s sweet and creamy, you may enjoy it after a light dinner.
It’s also a very summer-y drink, making it ideal to consume during a hot afternoon at the pool, or at the end of a garden party with your friends. The best moment, of course, is when the strawberries are ready for harvest. During this period, they are at their sweetest, making it the perfect ingredients for this milkshake.
- 4 oz Baileys Strawberries & Cream
- 2 scoops Vanilla ice cream

While the strawberry milkshake with Baileys is in itself already a perfect recipe, you may want to experiment with different flavors as Baileys have plenty of flavor variations in stock.
For instance, you can create a delicious chocolate milkshake by using ‘Baileys Chocolat Luxe’ and chocolate ice cream. Or, you can stick to the vanilla ice cream and add the coffee-flavored Baileys drink.
If you prefer a vegan cocktail, you can use the Baileys Almande liquor, with fresh strawberries, a vegan strawberry ice cream, and almond milk. Just as delicious as the regular strawberry milkshake cocktail, only this one is vegan.
Lastly, you can also stick to using the Baileys Strawberries and Cream but using various fruits for an extra sweet cocktail! For instance, you can combine blueberries, blackberries, and peaches in the blender for a fruity milkshake.
