If you thought buying a bottle of Baileys was reserved for the festive season, think again – because the well-loved brand has just brought out a product perfect for summer.

The Baileys Colada Irish Cream Liqueur means that we can enjoy all of that creamy, indulgent goodness, but in a new, uplifting, fruity form.

Think sweet pineapples and tropical coconuts mixed into the thick, creamy liqueur and tell us that doesn't scream 'sunny beach holiday'.

It's an easy way to bring those tropical vibes to our decidedly-untropical back gardens and a straight-forward crowd-pleaser.

Forget the wine, we're making space for this beauty at the BBQ table.

Why we rate it:

If you love Bailey's, you'll recognise the same taste of the triple-distilled Irish whiskey and rich, luxurious Irish cream, with the tropical tang of coconut and sweet pineapple just lifting your tastebuds at the end.

It's the perfect tipple for a sunny day or balmy night and can be enjoyed straight, or blended with a handful of pineapple and ice to create a refreshing cocktail.

We've also heard that mixing the liqueur with a dash of almond milk and blending with ice is a particularly indulgent way to enjoy it.

Add a cocktail umbrella, paper straw or a slice of lime to the glass to give it extra beach vibes.

In fact, the only thing we don't rate is that currently, the Baileys Colada is only available for a limited time.

Buy it: Baileys Colada Irish Cream Liqueur, 70cl | £19.99 from The Bottle Club
