A delicious Irish cocktail combination with two of Ireland’s most famous drinks: Irish whiskey and Baileys. Ideal for cozying up next to a bonfire on a summer's night (or any night, really) and most definitely a go-to for a nice summer evening. 

Both drinks go down smooth, but in this concoction, it is double the pleasure.

Mix and enjoy!
