Mmm... a sweet and creamy Baileys. Not quite so dreamy for those off the dairy, though. But vegans and lactose loathers, rejoice – the popular Irish whiskey- and cream-based liqueur has just launched a dairy-free version of its drink, Baileys Almande. To show off the brand-new, exotically-named flavour (which is actually just posh for ‘almond’), Baileys is launching a one-day café filled with vegan indulgence. And you can eat and drink there for free.
The Vegan Treat Stop by Baileys Almande is popping up in Soho Square from 1pm until 7pm on Friday March 23, serving five vegan takes on classic desserts (and all containing dairy-free Baileys). Each punter will be given a free ticket that entitles them to one of the range of five puds, each paired with a glass of the Irish liqueur on ice.
Vegan desserts on the day include sticky toffee pudding made by London baker Lily Vanilli, and eton mess by Nonna’s Gelato, another favourite on the London street food scene. Maybe wear those elasticated trews – just because it’s dairy-free doesn’t mean it’s indulgence-free. Oh, and luckily, it’s definitely not alcohol-free.
The Vegan Treat Stop by Baileys Almande is popping up at 13 Soho Square, W1D 3QF on Fri Mar 23, 1-7pm. Visitors (18+ only) will receive one free dessert and drink.
