Wine & spirits: Hot chocolate
Stay warm all winter with this sweet treat.
Since it was first created in 1974, Baileys Original Irish Cream has slowly risen to the top of Canadians' list of favourite after-dinner drinks. Now, the makers have introduced two new delicious Baileys flavours -- Caramel and Mint Chocolate ($29 each). For a special treat, add a generous shot to your coffee in place of regular milk or cream.
