      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This is a very nice drink but it is very sweet

      WHAT IS IT?

      Toffee flavoured liqueur called Dooleys.

      THE FLAVOUR

      Dooleys is like Baileys a little bit but it has got a toffee flavour that is mixed with the taste of cream.  It is made of vodka but I do not think that you can taste vodka in it at all even though after I swallow it there is quite a strong flavour of alcohol like you get when you drink Baileys.  Dooleys is a little bit thinner than Baileys but I think that it is very sickly after I have had more than 2 glasses and that is because the toffee makes it taste very sweet.

      WHAT I THINK

      I drink Dooleys more when the weather is cold because it is very rich and too heavy I think for when the weather is hot.  I like to add ice cubes and drink it like that but my husband likes Dooleys when it is poured into a cup of white hot chocolate because it gives it extra flavour and the alcohol makes it feel more special for him, I do not like it like that even though I pour Baileys into coffee or hot chocolate because I think it makes the hot drink too sweet for me to enjoy.

      My sister uses it in cocktails but she has only told me about them and I have not tried them for myself.  I like that Dooleys feels silky when I swallow it but it does not taste to me as much like luxury as Baileys, ice does not change the texture so I sometimes let the ice cubes melt a little bit and that makes the drink not so sweet.  It makes me feel warm on a cold day but I could not drink it and be comfortable if the weather was hot, Dooleys does not refresh me and I like it more to be comforting and a treat.  I had one miniature bottle of Dooleys on New Years Eve because I was pregnant but I wanted an alcoholic drink to say happy new year, I had Dooleys because it is a smooth drink that has got a nice flavour so I did not care that I could have one glass only because it is a drink to be enjoyed and not to gorge on.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      A bottle of Dooleys toffee liqeur costs about £12 and it has got 17% of alcohol in it.  I cannot drink very much because of how sweet it is but it will last for a few weeks in my fridge before it spoils.  When I open a bottle I will often give my sister what is left over because Dooleys is not something I would like to drink very regular even though I like it.

      4 Dooyoo Stars.

        Like marmite - you love it or you hate it

        =Dooley's Toffee Liqueur=

        Firstly I will say this is like Marmite you either love it or you hate it. I like it, but Mr Thrifty hates it, so more for me.

        =Dooley's=
        Dooley's is a toffee based liqueur, it is primarily a secret recipe, but it has Vodka as the base to the mix and is infused with real toffee caramel,

        =The Bottle=
        You can't see the bottle when you buy the Dooley's, the outer wrapping covers the whole bottle and is a bright red and blue label, with writing on the label, this has a screw top lid.

        =Acquired Taste=
        There is nothing really to describe it as like this or that, it is an acquired taste, the drink has almost 2 elements to it, the toffee part of the drink, then you get the hit of the Vodka, which has a dry element to it. I find it is a sweet drink, and after one or two drinks, you don't want any more as it is too sickly in taste.

        =Shelf Life=
        I think it has 3 months to be used by from when you opened it. I can't be 100% sure as I had some at Christmas, and when I went to drink it in March, the drink just did not taste right.

        =Chilled but afterwards=

        This doesn't need to be served chilled, although once open it need to be kept in the fridge.

        =The drink=
        It has a smooth toffee feel to it, which is what you get the first hit from, the second hit comes from the Vodka, and feels sharp in your mouth, there is a contrast in the taste, hence why I say you love it or hate it.

        =Price and Availability=
        This is hard to get hold of Dooley's, it seems to appear on the shelves at Christmas, but if you fancied a bottle in the middle of summer, you would have a job finding one, the last time I saw one was at Duty Free and a 70cl bottle was £17 (March 2013).


        =Alternative Uses=
        You can use Dooley's in a coffee instead of milk, and I have also used it in hot chocolate, as it gives a nice toffee back ground to the drinks.

        I have also used it as a topping on ice-cream.

        =Personally=
        I would only buy a bottle again if I knew that there was someone else around that would drink it with me, as for me I struggle to drink one bottle over a couple of months.

        =Score=
        This is a 3/5 as I am almost sat on the fence as which way to go, yes I do like it, but struggling to finish a bottle and finding ways of using it, isn't really the way to go.

          Yummy creamy drink perfect for a girls night in

          Dooleys, fresh cream infused with toffee and caramel mmmm....... :)


          Using natural ingredients to get a smooth taste and texture using a so called secret blending process to give it a unique flavour, (blended from premium vodka, natural ingredients and infused with real toffee caramel.)

          Dooleys is produced by a family owned company in Germany who have been producing drinks since 1892, being the only toffee liqueur on the market....or the only one I can find.

          This is a perfect girls drink, the company wanted to create something for us girls!
          And if you like Baileys you will probably like this although it is quite different from Baileys as its based on vodka rather that whiskey,
          purely because not many girls like whiskey! and its HALF THE FAT!!!

          Because its low in fat it doesn't have to kept chilled so its not always found in the fridge at the supermarkets, although when its opening it should be kept chilled.

          Its a lovely drink maybe a little bit more sickly than Baileys (although being fat the fat I would say it might be higher in sugar)
          Perfect for a girls night in served with loads of ice.

          I sometimes umm and arr over whether to buy Baileys or Dooleys, always choosing Baileys although now I know its half the fat id probably be more tempted get the Dooleys, I will be trying it in cocktails next time I buy it :)


          As with Baileys its a great ingredients for cooking, cocktails and coffees,
          how about a Dooleys Day Dream...
          40ml Dooley's
          1 espresso
          Whipped cream
          its easy pour the dooleys into the coffee and pour the cream on top!!



          For a 70cl bottle its about 11.99 and its 17% alcohol

            a Vodka Toffee Liqueur, what a combination!

            Not so long ago I read and rated a review by CheekyCharlie08 over this toffee liqueur from Dooley's and at the time I thought to myself how nice it sounded. Deciding at the time that this would be a drink to get in for Christmas I kept this in mind and as I bought our Christmas booze last week I also bought a bottle of this in.

            Bottled as shown in the picture above the design is eye-catching and appealing, the bottle tells me that it is a Vodka and Toffee Cream liqueur and has a quite-high alcohol content of 17%. I already had a pre-conceived idea as to how this would taste and assumed it would be similar to the other well enjoyed creamy liqueur - Baileys.

            I was wrong; there are similarities don't get me wrong, the consistency is creamy like Baileys and the colouring the same but the taste is quite literally mind blowing. Flowing from the bottle and served over ice the first thing you notice is the kick of the Vodka and I have to say this took me by surprise. I had expected a smooth taste but the Vodka hits you like a brick, it's only after a second or two that the Toffee flavouring comes through and then the two tastes combine to give a sweet and creamy sensation in your mouth.

            Being fond of Vodka and Toffee anyway but never trying the two together I was surprised at how delicious this actually was and how different from Baileys, getting over the initial shock of the strong Vodka taste the toffee provides a welcome 'blanket' and this really is a liqueur to be sipped and savoured.

            I enjoyed everything about this drink, from the cartoony styling on the bottle to the actual drink inside and I could imagine this becoming a regular favourite of mine and an alternative to Baileys. I only had 1 glass last night and I knew about it, I wasn't rolling around drunk after a glass but the Vodka certainly hits home and I was left feeling warm and slightly fuzzy. I don't think I could manage to drink glass after glass as the alcohol content is high and the taste would become sickly if over-indulged but as a drink to sip whilst chatting or watching the television it was perfect.

            The cost of my bottle was just under £10.00 for 70cl and this was on offer in Morrisons, personally I feel that this is good value for money when compared to other liqueurs and I would definitely buy this again. For anyone with a sweet tooth who likes Vodka you can't really get any better than this and for me it made a delicious change from my usual tipple.

            I can't fault this at all, and would certainly recommend this to other people, a firm 5/5 Dooyoo star rating from me.

            Just wanted to end this review with a 'thankyou' to CheekyCharlie for drawing my attention to this drink, the power of Dooyoo is once again apparent and had it not been for her review I would never have even considered buying this.

              A Lovely Change From Baileys

              When my mate came round last night she brought a bottle of Dooley's for us to share while we watched a film, I've had it before but always when I've already had a load of drink and as you know most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between yumminess and paint stripper by then!

              It's proper nice, I love creamy liqueurs and the toffee flavour of Dooleys makes it even more special than Baileys I reckon.

              Dooley's is 17% so it's not mega strong like spirits but because it's made with vodka it's got a nice kick to it and you can deffo taste the alcohol in the drink. It's not harsh or bitter at all though, Dooleys is quite sweet and the toffee taste is very authentic and absolutely delish.

              It's quite creamy to drink and isn't too thick either. I like Baileys but sometimes I think it's too gloopy to drink properly, there's no problem like that with Dooley's though because even though it's creamy it's got a thinner consistancy that makes it sooooo nice to drink.

              In my opinion it's too sweet to get drunk on, I know last night I started feeling sick after 4 glasses and even though they were big glasses and got me a bit tipsy I deffo couldn't have managed any more. It's not majorly sugary tasting but the toffee flavour is obviously proper sweet and that makes it quite a sickly drink.

              The toffee flavour is wicked though and apart from the kick of the vodka it tastes very much like proper toffee, my mate said it's more of a caramel flavour but she's a bit of a knob sometimes and thinks she's bloody Jilly Goulden! Toffee, caramel, same difference as far as I'm concerned! lol

              A bottle costs about £10.00 and that's good for such a yummy drink, it'll deffo be on my Xmas list this year!

              For vodka lovers everywhere!

              Dooley's is a creamy liqueur made with Vodka and toffee and cream and was first produced and made available in 2000, it originates from Germany but is currently sold in over 60 countries around the world.

              It has a fairly high alcoholic content and is 17% and claims to have less than 50% fat compared to many other cream liqueurs.

              I first came across Dooley's in my local pub a few years ago when one of the bar staff who is also a friend encourage me to try it telling me it tasted like Baileys.

              So after a little persuasion (I love Vodka, so wasn't hard really to persuade me!) I tried it and am glad that I did.

              It does taste like Baileys but its much sweeter and very creamy, it is very easy to swallow, it flows down your throat and leaves a lovely warm sensation after drinking.

              It can be served with ice but I prefer it without, with ice it tends to separate slightly in the glass.

              I now drink it as much as I can when I need a sweet kick in a pub.

              Dooley's also goes brilliantly with coffee and hot chocolates, you can also mix it with milk if you like.

              It also comes in a very bright and modern looking bottle, its very easy to spot on the shelves and it looks as smooth as it tastes.

              Dooleys has its own website where you can learn more about the product http://www.dooleystoffee.com and it also has various cocktail suggestions you can try.

              You can also learn about the award wins that the drink has had including many liqueur of the year competition wins.

              Unfortunately it is not always easy to find Dooleys, I have only been able to locate it in local off licences near me recently but if you do spot a bottle it is well worth trying if your a fan of cream liquers, its perfect to relax with on an evening especially winter ones where it can warm you soul.

                Highly Recommended

                Dooley's Toffee Liqueur is a real treat indeed for anybody that's a fan of sweet liqueurs. It's a vodka based liqueur that contains 17% alcohol, combined with cream and toffee caramel flavours. It isn't sold in my local Tesco anymore which is a shame, but maybe that's because it's a drink that a lot of people only have at Christmas?

                It's still stocked by my local off licence though, so it's a good place to look for it if you want to buy some yourself. You can expect to pay around £12 for a 70cl bottle but prices vary a lot out side of the supermarket of course.

                Dooley's Toffee Liqueur is really thin and smooth to drink. The rich, creamy taste comes through immediately, and the toffee flavour soft caramel comes with it. It smells very strongly of toffee, but I can taste caramel over toffee when I drink it. It's very sweet, but the vodka does give it a bit more of a clean taste than when you drink something like Tia Maria, which is considerably more sugary than Toffee Dooley's is.

                It's best served cold over ice without any mixers. They do say you can use it as a mixer, but I don't think this needs it as a general rule. The only thing I will do occassionally is mix it with milk, half and half, to make it go further. The daughter loves to do dilute it right down and gulp it come to think of! She says it's like an alcoholic milkshake!

                I really like this drink, though I wouldn't want to do my waistline too much damage by drinking it too often. As an occassional treat, and especially at Christmas, this is a first class treat.

                  Nice drink to have a few glasses of

                  I had this bought for my birthday and loved it.

                  Its a creamy liquear simliar to Baileys although this ne has more of a toffee taste to it. It is actually a mix between vodka and a toffe liquear, and I find that the vodka gives it a nice refreshing taste but as this wears off your hit by the creamy and sweet flavour of the liquear. For me I find it a very smooth drink and I would describe it as being like liquid silk once its in your mouth.

                  With the bottle I got there was a little leaflet/booklet type thing which gives you serving suggestions for this drink. I have tried a few as you can create cocktails with this but for me nothing beats it when you just have it in a glas with ice.

                  However though if your not fond of the sweet alcholic drinks this one wont be for you as after a few glasses it can be quite sickly!

                  A deliciously creamy toffee liquer, makes great cocktails, though not everyone likes it!

                  If you're a lover of Bailey's Irish Cream, I think you'll be a lover of Dooley's.

                  So what is Dooley's?
                  Well, it's a delicious cream liquer, a toffee and vodka liquer which you cannot drink in large quantities! It can be quite sickly, but if you like rich cream liquers like I do then you will love this.

                  I've actually tried this is various cocktails which are really nice and they are quite unique. Have impressed my friends with some the flavours!! You can find recipes for these cocktails on the website.

                  I've also tried Dooley's topped with a huge scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream and some cream to make a sort of sundae!!

                  The best way to have it though has got to be in a cold glass with a couple of ice cubes!

                  You can find Dooley's in many supermarkets and I think it ranges from £10 to £15 (£10 if on offer).

                  Definately give it a try, but if you hate toffee and hate sickly stuff, steer clear!!

                    Disadvantages

                    I don't write many alcohol reviews, which is strange really, seem as though youth is supposed to be about drinking, dancing, being generally wild and having fun! Although it is true that you can have fun without drinking, the odd tipple every now and again can do no harm can it :) Now usually when I drink, I like to drink Alco pops. You know the ones: Smirnoff, Reef, Hooch etc. However a few years ago I got more into the heavier stuff. It became a tradition to drink neat vodkas wherever I went. Now don?t get me wrong I wasn?t an alcoholic but when I drank I drank! Now I?m getting older I have raised my standards a little and I?m trying out different things that I never thought I?d try. Various liqueurs being one of those things. I?ve tried sherry and quite liked it (even if it is a bit strong!), and now this. But was it worth it? *** A little about the good stuff *** Now for those of you who don?t know what Dooley?s is, prepare to be amazed! It is a very strong alcoholic drink that tastes exactly like toffee. That?s right?toffee! It was introduced into the UK in the run up to Christmas 2000 and would you believe that one of my favourite stores started selling it first (Tesco?s). It can be served with a few other drinks to make a tasty recipe, if your lucky I might give you a few recipes later on the review. It comes in a colourful bottle that I have to say is quite small compared to other liqueur bottles, and its packaging is supposed to reflect that it is good for both those who are young and those who are young at heart. If you want to find it you should look for a bottle that is half red and half blue. It really is eye-catching. Oh yeah, the thing you will probably most want to know is that it is 17% which is pretty darn high I
                    think! *** Smell and taste *** It smells quite strong I have to admit but I tend not to sniff my drinks when I get them. My dad has a strange habit of doing that but the less said about that the better! I didn?t really know what to expect to be honest when I first poured some of this into a glass. It looked really creamy and quite thick. In fact I think I can go as far as saying that it looked extremely delicious and my mouth was watering at the sight of it. Corny but true! My first impressions of it were that it tasted really strong but actually quite nice. It was much nicer than I expected. In fact, it was delicious! It really tasted of toffee and I could hardly tell that I was drinking alcohol. I like that in an alcoholic drink because it means you can drink more and enjoy it more. It had a really creamy taste and I loved the way it just glided down my throat leaving a really warm trail behind. It warmed me up something chronic and I haven?t felt that for a while. I don?t know if you know what I mean but it?s those types of alcoholic drinks that leave you feeling warm inside no matter what temperature it is outside. This is great if it?s freezing because you definitely won?t feel it! I didn?t find it sickly in any way but some people might do so this could be a disadvantage to some. *** Price and availability *** I bought this for £6.99 from South Wales while I was staying with my parents over Xmas. I thought this was really expensive at the time because the bottle is quite small. You get 70cl in a bottle the same as you get with a bottle of wine usually (or at least that?s what I get in my bottles of wine). Prices will vary though from place to place and after looking around when I got back into Swindon, this stuff
                    sells from anything between £10.47 in Tesco?s to £15.99 on the website. A thing to mention is that on the website you can buy Dooley?s in a pack of 6 which I haven?t seen available anywhere else. It is rather expensive though at £95.94! It is widely available and you can get it from supermarkets like Tesco (they stock it in 260 stores throughout the UK), Asda and selected Safeway stores. They also sell it in pubs, clubs and cash and carries. So as you can see it isn?t the cheapest of drinks but it is worth the money. But just in case you aren?t yet convinced here?s just a little more information about this incredible drink: *** How much will you need to have to get you drunk? *** Personally I didn?t even need half the bottle to get myself a little tipsy. It took me one tiny glass (and I mean tiny!) to make myself warm inside and quite ?high?. I?d say even the hardest of drinkers wouldn?t be able to stand much of this stuff before getting drunk. *** You mentioned recipes earlier? *** That?s right I did! Good thing you reminded me isn?t it! If you?re a whiz at making cocktails here?s a couple of recipe?s you could try making with this delightful stuff. But even if you aren?t an expert why not have fun guessing the amounts? Either way have fun and if you can?t be good be very, very bad! Lol ** Banana Pudding ** Mix one part Dooley?s and one part Kahlua and then a final part of banana liqueur over ice in a standard whisky tumbler. ** Sticky Nipple ** Put equal amounts of both Dooley?s, Sambuca and chilled Amaretto and layer them over each other in a shot glass. ** Jamaican Dooley?s ** Pour two parts of Dooley?s over ice and add one part of dark rum then finally stir. So there
                    you have it, some luscious recipes to keep you occupied and to keep you in trouble! Don?t forget you can also use it instead of milk in your coffee (although I wouldn?t advise that during office hours! lol), and you can also pour it over pancakes! *** Any final information *** If you need any other information you can find out more by visiting their website. You aren?t supposed to advertise other websites in opinions other than ciao so I won?t list the name of the website for that reason. I can however say that if you type Dooley?s toffee into a search engine it will more than likely bring back the Dooley?s website for you. It is a good website which I might actually write about sometime. Anyway I think it?s time for this review to come to an end because I?m getting a craving for it and if I stop now it might just go away. Oh what the hell, one glass won't hurt! Aimee xxx

                      Disadvantages

                      I saw this in Safeways the other night and as it was a toss up between Dooleys and Baileys which is my normal sweet tipple of choice, I decided to try this for a change. It was significantly cheaper than Baileys as well at only £8.99 and as a cash-strapped student, I decided to go for the cheaper option. My first impressions of this 'toffee, vodka liquer' was that it had a very strong smell of toffee. I personally love toffee and toffee-based products and I thought this would be a good alternative to a sweet or pudding after dinner. On first sip, I could instantly taste the vodka and I thought that it was instantly too strong. I know, I know, i'm a lightweight! But then I had another sip and all I could taste was toffee. It was delicious. You could easily make yourself sick on this though as it is so sweet, and perhaps a bit sickly after too many glasses. The best way to drink this is on ice and I like to leave the bottle in the fridge so that it is extra cold. You can also put it in coffee as well I think, although I haven't tried this yet.

                        I just couldn?t resist this title ? Dooley?s should really be the official dooyoo spirit with that name! If you have not had Dooley?s Original Toffee Vodka before then you really are missing out. Unless you don?t like toffee of course, as the name suggests this cream liquor is almost bursting with delicious toffee flavour. Mmm just describing it is making me want some. Eleven in the morning isn?t too early to have some, is it? Just in the name of research of course... My desire for toffee vodka... I mean my desire to write an accurate review... has lead me to ignore the earliness of the hour and bring out the Dooley?s! You will probably have spotted this product in an off licence or supermarket before ? it is the bottle that looks like a giant Cream Egg! As it shows in the little picture at the top, the bottle is an eye catching blue and red combination with catroon-ish writing saying ?Dooley?s? on it. I originally thought it was some kind of Cream Egg liquor ? that is how similar they are! To me this is bordering on breaking the advertisers code and appealing to children, but I doubt any parents will let their kids have some once they have tasted how delicious it is! Anyway, no time to delay on packaging. Too the toffeeness! No, wait, there is still the advertising to mention yet. Damn. The tagline is ?Vodka Toffee ? not for the sweet and innocent?. This goes along with some very ?artistic? black and white images of naked men and women licking various parts of each other?s bodies... The cartoony packaging and adverts are certainly very different! The theme for the adverts seems to be summed up with the accompanying message ?Dooley?s ? on ice, on ice cream, on skin?. So yes, if you have a convenient volunteer you can really experiment with the limits of Dooley?s versatility! Right I
                        finally get to have some of this delicious cream liquor now! About time too. The neck of the bottle has a little plastic divider in it, presumably to mix the liquid together while you are pouring it. It looks just like Baileys and other creamy alcoholic drinks ? kind of milky, but with a creamy caramel colour. There is a very yummy toffee smell along with quite a strong smell of alcohol too. I like to drink it just straight, from a shot glass. At first it just tastes creamy, then you get the toffee flavour coming through. Like liquid Worther?s Original toffees or crème caramel desserts. After a few seconds the alcohol kicks in and it produces a lovely warming sensation on your tongue. You are left with a general creamy caramel aftertaste and a warming glow. Just going to have another sip now, mmmmm?. Dooley?s is only 17% alcohol, so the rest of this op will not be overly hindered by my early morning taste-test! Just some of the many suggestions for what you can do with Dooley?s include adding it to coffee, on ice, as a shooter, in cocktails, over desserts, over pancakes and, if you have that volunteer handy, on skin! There is a website at www.dooleystoffee.com which includes several cocktail recipes such as Jamaican Dooley?s where you add some rum to it, and the interestingly named ?Sticky Nipple? which consists of equal parts chilled amaretto, Dooley?s and sambuca. They all sound nice, but I quite like it just on it?s own, to appreciate the true toffee gloriousness of this wonderful cream liquor! The ingredients that make up its toffee loveliness are vodka, cream, sugar, milk, flavour and caramel syrup. If is available in most supermarkets and off licences, for around £13 for a 0.7 litre bottle. They also do adorable little miniature 70cl bottles which have an even closer resemblance to Cream Eggs, and are not really big enough for
                        more than one quick drinks worth. Treat yourself and buy the big bottle! You never know when you might find that handy volunteer and want to do some experiments...

                          I got a bottle of this for Christmas and its one of the best liqueurs I've tasted, along with Baileys of course! My bottle came in a presentation pack with 6 toffee tipper glasses (cute little round glasses like Weebles (remember them???) that can fall nearly all the way over and not spill a drop!) that were especially designed for the Dooleys drink and a recipe booklet. Dooley's was first introduced in December 2000 but it's only the in the last 12 months or so that it's become available just about everywhere. The tagline for Dooley's is 'Vodka Toffee: Not for the sweet and innocent' - well, I'm definately not sweet or innocent so this seems to be the drink for me! :o) oOoOo THE BOTTLE oOoOo Dooley's comes in a square glass bottle which is half red and half blue. It makes me think of Cream eggs to be honest and I think that's down to the colour scheme. The word Dooley's is written in darker blue letters and edged in yellow, which adds to the 'Cream Egg complex'! Original Toffee Liquer is below Dooley's in fancy writing - sounds good, eh? The top of the bottle is a simple twist off metal cap, painted red to match the bottle. I love this bottle. It's trendy but manages to look a bit posh at the same time and I've now got mine on the shelf in the kitchen with a yellow candle sticking out of the top - it looks fab too. :o) The Dooley's miniatures are tiny versions of this bottle and I think they're so sweet. Mind you, when I've got a couple of mini's in I have to be careful to put them out of my 4 year olds way cos she thinks they look good enough to drink too! lol oOoOo THE TASTE oOoOo Delicious. It's the same texture of Bailey's, very creamy and it's lovely and sweet. The thing that surprised me was that it actually DID taste of toffee. I was expecting to be disappointed like with the toffee yogurts at the supermarket - h
                          ow can they get away with calling something toffee flavour when it tastes nothing like toffee???!!! But with Dooleys, the toffee flavour really came through - it had the flavour of an alcoholic toffee sauce. I drank the whole bottle in one night and towards the end I found the sweetness a bit over powering but not too much - before I drank it I was expecting to be a bit sickly, but it wasn't. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, the same bitterness you get after drinking a glass of Bailey's but this isn't a bad thing and the aftertaste doesn't last long anyway. The smell that come's out of the bottle is a rich toffee smell and you can tell it's going to be really sweet. I tried a couple of recipes out of the book, but honestly my fave way to drink it was plain over ice - it WAS delicous poured over vanilla ice cream though.... I also had poured some into my coffee instead of milk and this made a lovely change. A word of warning though - if you have it in coffee don't add sugar. Dooley's makes the coffee so sweet anyway that if there's sugar in there too you'll be sick before long! oOoOo ANYTHING ELSE? oOoOo Dooley's is vodka based and is 17% by volume, but its one of those drinks that isn't particulary stong but gets you drunk really quick! My mate brought mine from Tesco for £10.99 and I also got the 6 toffee tipper glasses with it so that was a bit of a bargain. A bonus too is that Dooleys has up to 50% less fat than other cream liqueurs - so a nice drink if (like me) you're keeping an eye on your weight. Its very sweet though so what it lacks in fat it will definitely make up for in calories! I recommend it to anyone who likes liqueur drinks - an interesting alternative to Baileys. Have a look at their website if you want to know more. http://www.dooleystoffee.unitedbrands.co.uk/home.asp Thanks for reading. :o)

                            Well here we are at Christmas time and im sure everybody is stocking up with booze, food and pressies, I asked my mum to by me a bottle of Dooley?s for Christmas, I have heard so much about it that I wanted it, so my mum has bought it for ?the house? and I had to try some, I am a great lover of anything fattening and toffee, so I thought I would love this. Dooley?s is a toffee liquor originally from America, but now it is licensed in Europe by a company called behn originals in Germany, Dooley?s is a nice and unusual mix of cream, vodka and caramel syrup, plus at an added bonus it has 50% less fat than most other liquors. The packaging is very vibrant and alive, it looks like a 10year olds toffee milkshake, it has a red and blue twinned packaging, with Dooley?s written up the side and 2 melting toffees by the side, the packaging stands out very easily, for instance I was in my Tesco looking for this Dooley?s and I saw all the original Malibu, Tia Maria, baileys and they were all dull and boring colours, then I saw this and thought ?hey hey a party drink? It smells a lot like toffee, you unscrew the cap and you get a huge waft of toffee and when I poured myself a glass I went out and I still smelt it so it is a very strong smell (in a good way), I myself couldn?t smell the alcohol, so im sure if a child saw this in a glass they would think it is toffee milkshake, the taste is a lot like baileys but toffee, it has that smooth texture and that luxury feel good taste, I don?t think anyone would go on a binge with this because I think it is too sickly to have in vast amounts, but for Christmas I would say it is great, it has 17% alcohol in it and it is quite a lot (but nothing compared to absinth), after a small amount of this I did feel very hot and stuffy, It may have been the drink or the fact I had no ice L For 70cl of this you will be expected to pay from £10-£14 and for a liquor that is farily cheap (like the budgie) On
                            the bottle it says you can either drink it on the rocks (ice), or put a bit in with your coffee or tea, also I found these recipes from www.dawn-wells.com Sticky Nipple 1/3 Amaretto 1/3 Dooley?s 1/3 Sambucca Milk of Amnesia ½ Jagermeister, ½ Dooley?s Carrot Cake 1/3 Dooley?s 1/3 Butter Scotch Schnapps 1/3 Cinnamon Schnapps My Overall verdict is that Dooley?s is not a drink you should abuse, you should drink it as if it is the only drink in all the land, very slowly and very sinfully Hoped you liked my op J
