Healthier Spiced Coconut Baileys Irish Sweet Tea Recipe
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, if you can’t get enough four-leaf clovers and vibrant Emerald green colored everything, then why not indulge in a delicious new Irish cocktail with a healthy twist?🍀
Although St. Patrick's Day is not a federally recognized holiday in the United States, millions of Americans love to celebrate the language, literature, music, art, folklore, and cuisine associated with Ireland and the Irish people on St. Paddy’s every year. Whether you like to wear green and give a quick pinch to those who aren't, host an Irish-themed party, or simply go for a night out at an Irish pub, there are so many ways to show your St. Patrick’s Day love and celebrate here in the USA.
And it is honestly no wonder so many Americans celebrate the Irish every year when you consider the fact that there are around 40 million Americans who have full or partial Irish ancestry.
However, no matter what your reasons are for dressing in green or how you like to celebrate the Emerald Isle every year, there is one thing we think all Irish lovers can agree on: St. Patrick’s Day is always better with a fun cocktail in hand.
If you’re looking for a tasty Irish-inspired drink for St. Patrick’s Day, skip all that beer and zest up your St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a healthier and more delicious option: a Spiced Coconut Irish Sweet Tea Recipe with Bailey’s.
This healthy Irish sweet tea recipe is a great St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail that is rich with warming vibrant flavor in every sip and is super easy to make with only 3 simple ingredients!
Our St. Patrick’s Day Spiced Coconut Sweet Tea Cocktail uses Baileys but with a healthier spin. We use Bailey’s Deliciously Light Irish Cream in our recipe. This Bailey’s Cream contains 40% fewer calories and 40% less sugar than Baileys Original Irish Cream, but still has the luscious flavors of regular stuff with real vanilla essence and Irish whiskey.
The Bailey’s Deliciously Light Irish Cream blends like a dream with our Wise Ape Coconut Warrior tea. This is a revitalizing blend of Assam black tea, coconut, and turmeric, combined with wildcrafted pau d' arco bark, designed to mitigate inflammation and defend your body from the inside out. The balanced flavors of Assam black tea, turmeric, and cinnamon are complemented by light coconut-vanilla undertones, followed by a kiss of subtle sweetness from pau d' arco bark. When this is combined with Bailey’s Cream in our Irish Sweet Tea recipe it creates a sumptuous, sweet creamy flavor that perfectly weaves its way through the pleasingly bitter notes of tea and warm spices. What could make it better? Nothing… am I right?!
Considering Ireland consumes around 10% more tea per capita than anywhere in the UK, drinking an Irish-themed tea-infused cocktail is also another way to celebrate and honor Irish Culture.
Now, what are you waiting for? Gather some friends for some healthier Irish cocktails that’ll invigorate your taste buds and have you partying like a Leprechaun!
