Recommend me a new/unusual liqueur type drink.

Every year I buy Dh a bottle of something creamy,sweet and alcoholic as a little pressie. He's had every flavour of baileys, Thornton's liqueur and Dooley's toffee liqueur. Last year I got him a gorgeous toffee vodka which I liked more than he did! He's generally not into strong spirits, prefers a creamy type drink. Any suggestions?

M&S have some v Xmassy ones coming out. But I've forgotten what.
Not sure if they are out yet, it was on a blog that someone linked to. Let me rack my brain. ..

Call me weird, but I really enjoy a small glass of Advocaat over ice! It tastes like alcoholic powdered custard.

TheSpottedZebra Sun 25-Oct-15 21:37:12

Yes! Looky looky: chocolate yule log cream and sherry trifle cream

Oh yum...chocolate Yule log cream!! That could be the one!

Thanks for the suggestions.

Those M&S ones sound fab.

Also you might try Amarula Cream liqueur, Bacardi Pina Colada or Bols Natural Yoghurt Liqueur, most supermarkets will have these.

I like a soothing Creme de Minthe frappe myself, though it's not creamy.

Sheridans is lovely.

I don't like creamy ones but I love Limoncello straight from the freezer. Would he like that?

M&S have a Christmas cocktail in a white bottle that looks intriguing.

Benedictine is really nice.

Do they still make Irish Mist? It's Irish whiskey with honey, a lot like Drambuie and just a whiff of it makes me frisky (olfactory memory 'n all that)! It used to come in a decanter style bottle with a "strangely" shaped cap...

Sgtmajormummy Mon 26-Oct-15 08:18:35

new bottle Ha! They've changed the style.

Ooh, lots of ideas, may buy a few!

Tesco have a lovely Finest salted caramel Irish cream! Yum! Fancying all of these...shock

Tequila rose?

IHaveBrilloHair Mon 26-Oct-15 09:10:08

I am tempted by the natural yoghurt one and I only ever really drink lager

Iggi999 Mon 26-Oct-15 09:34:16

Is 9.33am too early to go to Tescos?

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 26-Oct-15 09:36:53

Ive bought my brother a xmas pudding flavour m&s one. No idea what it's like.

ScarlettDarling Mon 26-Oct-15 11:40:39

Ooh I'd love the salted caramel one. DH hates salted caramel so will have to buy that for myself!

Quite fancy the Christmas pudding one too. Definitely need a trip to m&s.

The natural yoghurt one not really tempting me though...

whatdoIget Mon 26-Oct-15 11:53:42

The natural yoghurt one is the strangest sounding drink I've ever heard I think, but it is strangely tempting confused

IHaveBrilloHair Mon 26-Oct-15 12:23:06

I'm imagining it as an alcoholic lassie with lots of ice

whatdoIget Mon 26-Oct-15 12:28:24

Yes! Same here. I wonder if it's hard to get hold of? I'll check tescos later. I normally just get 3 bottles a bottle of "baileys" from Aldi, which is actually nicer than the real thing, and drink it gradually over Christmas.
