Creamy brown color. Sweet aromas of chocolate wafer cookies, white creme, lady finger cookies, vanilla wafer cookie, and chocolate chips with a creamy, bright, sweet medium-to-full body and a smooth, medium-length Yoo Hoo drink, brownie batter, and nougat finish. An extra creamy chocolatey liqueur that will be tasty in coffees, chocolate cocktails, and ice cold on the rocks.

Cream Liqueur, quite simply is a liqueur that has dairy cream added to a liquor. The most famous examples come from Ireland; they have a base of Irish whiskey; there are also version from Scotland, Canada, the US and several other countries.

Most of these cream liqueurs are in the 14% to 17% alcoholic range and are medium-sweet with flavors such as nougat, praline and chocolate. Most are served over the rocks. The category took off in the 1970s and although not as wildly popular today, it has remained strong.
