A couple years ago, Bailey's came out with an almond milk version, and I was so thrilled that I can enjoy creamy cocktails again. It's good! But after awhile, only having one cream liqueur option got a little boring. A girl needs variety! Enter BOM BOM Brands Nilli Vanilli and Fully Baked — two rum-based vegan cream liqueurs in unique flavors like vanilla wafer and chocolate chip cookie/brownie!!!
Nilli Vanilli is creamy almond milk liqueur that tastes like a blend of vanilla cookie flavors. And Fully Baked is like the cream liqueur version of Ben & Jerry's Fully Baked ice cream (WHAT?!) with a hemp milk base.
These sweet creamy concoctions are delicious on their own, sipped slowly from a rocks glass. But they're even better mixed into cocktails. I tried these a few ways, like this Spiked Hot Chocolate. I mixed 1.5 ounces of BOM BOM Fully Baked into a small glass of dark hot chocolate, topped with coconut whip. A perfect warm treat on a cold, cold night.
This weekend, as I put up my holiday tree and decor, I sipped on this Peppermint Martini (recipe on the BOM BOM website). It has vanilla peppermint vodka (that I infused myself last holiday season!) mixed with Nilli Vanilli. For the rim, I just happened to have some peppermint rimming sugar. The reason for the season!
My favorite cocktail so far was this Baked Apple Pie Cocktail, made with BOM BOM Fully Baked, apple whiskey, and cinnamon whiskey.
Here's the recipe:
4 parts BOM BOM Fully Baked Hemp Milk Liqueur
½ part apple whiskey
½ part cinnamon whiskey
Shake Fully Baked and whiskeys with ice and pour in your favorite fall cocktail glass. Mason jars are always a nice seasonal touch.
