Baileys is undoubtedly the best drink of the Christmas season; just as dreamy when poured over ice cubes as when whipped up with hot chocolate and plenty of squirty cream.
And now you can stock up on enough Baileys to keep you merry throughout the festive season, with Asda and Morrisons selling one litre bottles of the smooth, caramel coloured liqueur for just £10 a pop.
A bottle of this size would normally set you back £20, so this really is a welcome treat at this pricey yet boozy time of year.
A glass of Baileys is of course best enjoyed with the Christmas lights on and Wizard blasting out on Spotify.
Comfortingly versatile for any festive situation, Bailey’s is made for sipping while wrapping prezzies or when having friends over for a cheeky tipple.
Brilliantly, vegans won’t have to miss out on this fabulous bargain, with bottles of Bailey’s Almande (70cl) also included in the offer. Usually priced at £19, this dairy free delight is also being sold for a tenner a bottle.
According to Asda Spirits Buyer, Ryan Ormrod:
Baileys is always popular with our customers, so to treat them ahead of the festive season we’ve cut prices to spread some Christmas cheer.
With 1L bottles of Baileys and Baileys Almande (70cl) available for just £10 this weekend, we’re expecting to see stocks flying off the shelves as lovers of this much-loved boozy tipple look to make the most of this excellent offer.

It’s a coffee with my Bailey’s kind of day.

Of course, the wonder which is Baileys doesn’t just come in liquid form. Pudding lovers will be delighted to know about a £5 Baileys Chocolate Yule Log which is currently being sold at Tesco.
A miraculously delicious wintery pud, the chocolate Yule log has long been my favourite Christmas desert, perhaps more so than freshly baked mince pies. And when paired with Baileys, a little piece of Christmas magic is unlocked.
According to the description on the Tesco website:
Chocolate sponge filled with chocolate flavour frosting, coated in milk chocolate, masked with Baileys frosting and decorated with lustered milk chocolate curls and a coloured chocolate plaque.
