Kerrygold — which specializes in Irish dairy products many of which we’ve reviewed or offered as a FREEBIE on —  now offers Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur.

It is a rich and velvety blend of natural Irish cream, real chocolate and oak-aged Irish whiskey. This liqueur was named award-World’s Best Cream Liqueur at the 2016 World Drink Awards. It is now available in most states.

My favorite way to enjoy it is in this simple martini, is as a dessert rather than to start the night.
