In this video of triple chocolate pudding recipe, a shot of Baileys is added to whipped cream. Other than Baileys, what can I add to the cream?

do you want something non-alcoholic? Or is some other alcoholic beverage acceptable? – Sam Holder Jul 28 '10 at 15:17
Are you after an alternative for any parrticualr reason. Almost any liquor can be added to cream dending on your favourite. – Ian Turner Jul 28 '10 at 15:18

If you're looking for alcoholic alternatives then you could use O'Mara's or some other brand (see Wikipedia for a good list). A light coffee liquer could also serve as a workable alternative.

On the non-alcoholic side, Irish Cream flavored coffee creamers would work well.

Coffee syrups like Monin's or Torani's also have Irish Cream flavors. I personally like Monin syrups because they're all natural.

Anything. It's just a flavoring agent. If you're alcohol averse, I'd try some mint syrup (if you use mint extract, you'll still be getting some alcohol).

Pretty much any flavored liquid. Grand Marnier, bourbon, vanilla vodka, mint syrup, cherry liquer. Non-alcohol coffee syrups might be an easy flavoring option. Most cafes/starbucks sell them.

I have found a more delicious option which is far less expensive than Baileys:

Ryan's Irish Cream Liqueur

If the alcohol isn't a problem, you could mix some Irish Whiskey with cream and sugar to approximate Bailey's.
