Baileys, the makers of the most popular Irish cream liqueur in the world, has gone vegan! With the recent launch of Almande, a light but creamy liqueur with an almond milk base, Baileys has created a spirit that is dairy and gluten-free, and after working to remove beeswax from the original recipe, certified vegan.

To celebrate this new release, we had a little soiree here in Los Angeles by doing what Angelenos do best – workout, hang with beautiful celebrities, throw back some boozy smoothies and Instagram the h*ck out of it!

Our new bestie, Tia Mowry, who btw looks casually stunning in workout clothes, because of course she does, hosted at Tracy Anderson Method‘s gorgeous Brentwood Studio.

Guests participated in a crazy hard looking class – I safely observed from a distance 😉 and then they were treated to light, post workout cocktails created by yours truly!

Since Baileys Almande goes really well with coconut water and a little spice, I thought for one of the cocktails a horchata riff would be perfect for the occasion. The Horchata Almande is a combo of rum, cinnamon spice, coconut water and Almande. Light and refreshing and so easy to make.

Baileys discovered that Almande also works really well in smoothies, and as far as post-workout treats go, that was a no brainer. The Spring Fling Smoothie combines strawberries, banana, almond milk and coconut water with creamy Almande, for a low alcohol blended cocktail.
