FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the BMK - Baileys Malibu Kahlúa stirred rather than shaken?

The BMK cocktail is stirred instead of shaken to prevent the ingredients, especially Bailey's, from becoming too frothy or curdling. Stirring gently combines the liqueurs while maintaining a smooth texture.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What type of glass is best for serving the BMK - Baileys Malibu Kahlúa, and can other types be used?

The recommended glass for the BMK is a lowball glass, which helps to concentrate the flavors and aromas of the cocktail for a richer experience. While a lowball glass is preferred, other small to medium-sized glasses like a martini glass or a coupe could also be used, depending on personal preference or availability.

How does the alcohol content of BMK - Baileys Malibu Kahlúa compare to other popular cocktails?

The BMK has an alcohol content of 24.42%, which places it in the mid to high range of alcohol content for cocktails. It's stronger than light cocktails like the Aperol Spritz but not as strong as a straight spirit or cocktails like a Martini or Manhattan, which have a higher alcohol by volume (ABV).

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I use something other than Bailey's in the BMK - Baileys Malibu Kahlúa if I don't have it?

Yes, if Bailey's is unavailable, you can use another brand of Irish cream liqueur as a substitute without significantly altering the taste of the cocktail. For a dairy-free option, there are also vegan or non-dairy cream liqueurs that could work, though the flavor profile may slightly change.
