Baileys has launched a new pina colada edition of the classic Irish cream drink ahead of the summer.

The new product, called Baileys Colada, features Baileys Irish cream mixed with tropical flavours including coconut and pineapple.

Baileys is usually associated with Christmas, but the company says this limited edition version is “the perfect treat for all your summertime occasions”.

The product is currently only available in the US, but a spokesperson told The Independent it will be available for pre-order in the UK “around mid-April”.

The spokesperson added: “If you like piña coladas (and Baileys), you are in for an indulgent treat! The new limited edition and taste of summer indulgence - Baileys Colada touches down in the UK from next month.”

On the Baileys US website, the product is described as: “A blend of our irresistible Irish Cream with the flavors of creamy coconut and sweet, juicy pineapple to create a smooth and creamy drink that’s ready to serve straight from the fridge.

“This delicious treat is best enjoyed over ice or blended with ice for a refreshing summertime cocktail. Baileys Colada is the best way to vacation this summer.”

The new product has divided opinion on social media. In response to a Facebook post about the new launch on New Foods UK, one commenter said: “Baileys shouldn’t be messed with”, while another agreed, adding: “Am I the only one slightly horrified by the prospect of this[?].”

Many are excited about the new product, though. One commenter said the news was “too good to be true”.

On Twitter, users have been asking the Baileys official account when the product will launch in the UK.

One user said: “I would love to know if Baileys Colada flavour is going to be released in the UK & Ireland? I really hope it is, need this for summer whether in lockdown or not!”
