No plane ticket required: Baileys will bring the tropical vacation right to you thanks to its delectable new Colada. You might want to ready the mini umbrellas for the occasion! 

Although summer might seem far away—and an island excursion even further away—you can still soak up the best of the season with a rich new treat. The Irish cream is blended with pineapple and coconut flavors that exude poolside vibes (but no judgment if you sip a glass during a Zoom happy hour). The brand suggests that you serve it over ice and garnish with a pineapple. Say no more!

When people first discovered that the cocktail is officially available in the U.S. (and will soon debut in the U.K.), they immediately took to social media to send out virtual cheers.

This is news we can get behind. And for those who thought Baileys was strictly a wintertime comfort cocktail, you've mistaken. Even the brand was happy to clarify a few things for us on the topic.
