Bailey’s Irish Cream has decided to take a light approach to 2021, with the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light. With 40% less sugar and 40% less calories than Baileys Original, the Deliciously Light is an easy way to treat yourself and your loved ones (as long as they are over the legal drinking age) and take that light break that we all deserve.
In celebration of the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light, Neil Patrick Harris has teamed up with the brand to gift the ultimate light break to his longtime friend and confidante, Michael Serrato. With Baileys Deliciously Light at the ready, Neil treated Michael to hundreds of festive balloons, a dedicated marching band, along with a personalized billboard in the sky sharing a billowy motivational message over his home. Talk about a breather!
“Without a doubt, one of the best parts of the day is when you can finally take a moment and treat yourself to a much-needed break,” says Neil Patrick Harris. “However, many of us forget to do just that. As we ease into 2021, it’s obvious that we all need to take it easy every now and then. That’s why I’ve partnered with Baileys to launch Baileys Deliciously Light… it provides the perfect option for an afternoon treat when you can use a moment for yourself or with loved ones.”
Now while the marching band might reasonably be seen as overkill, Baileys does want to give you the chance to follow in Neil’s footsteps and acknowledge a friend or two with a break of their own. To do this, Baileys is partnering with Cocktail Courier to offer four custom Light Break packages. (Packages are only available in the contiguous 48 United States [except where otherwise indicated], subject to applicable local law.)
Each one is specifically curated for a variety of people in your life (21 or older) who deserve a special treat, offering a unique Baileys Deliciously Light cocktail on top of other assorted goodies:
For the motivated maven: Including the Baileys Deliciously Light “Rose Colored Glasses” cocktail made with coconut water along with a yoga towel and daily planner, this kit comes in handy when you’re ready to work up a sweat and then reward yourself with a light-tasting cocktail.
For the busybody: Complete with the Baileys Deliciously Light “But First, Coffee” cocktail made with espresso along with coffee mugs and an inspirational desk plate, this kit is perfect for encouraging your friend to pencil in a personal break.
For soul supplies: Featuring the Baileys Deliciously Light “Boba” cocktail made with green tea, along with a head massager and cozy socks, this kit acts as a helpful primer on the subtle art of unwinding.
For that special someone who deserves the ultimate break: This extremely limited-edition kit (only 5 available, while supplies last) is equipped with an exclusive, indulgent Baileys Deliciously Light “Gold Standard” cocktail made with Belgian chocolate, gold leaf, black cherry and whipped cream as well as a personalized pre-recorded video greeting from Neil Patrick Harris himself (yes, you read that right!).
“We’re delighted to offer a lighter version of our beloved Baileys Original Irish Cream,” says Stacey Cunningham, Director of Baileys & Liqueurs, Diageo North America. “We all deserve a little treat and with the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light, it’s the perfect reminder for us to take that well-deserved time for ourselves this year.”
Baileys Deliciously Light is a delicious and versatile expression that can be enjoyed over ice, chilled, or in a smoothie. Why not mix it with hot, iced or whipped coffee to enjoy as a treat at any time of the day.
