Unfortunately, the delicious BOM BOM dairy-free liqueurs have been discontinued. To see the options that are still available, see our guide to the Best Dairy-Free Cream Liqueurs.
You really deserve this. BOM BOM dairy-free liqueur is a new line of creamy alcoholic beverages from an award-winning company. Each sip offers sweet nostalgic flavors with a very grown-up finish.*
BOM BOM dairy-free liqueur is also a unique and delicious gift that comes in a beautiful, thick glass bottle with a stylish wooden cork. They’ll never guess that it cost you just $20! You can bet I’ll be getting a bottle of each for this year’s holiday hostess.
Meet the BOM BOM Dairy-Free Liqueur Flavors
BOM BOM currently makes two dairy-free varieties that are both lighter than dairy-based brands, but wonderfully fulfilling.
BOM BOM Nilli Vanilli is a gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan blend of premium Caribbean rum, almondmilk, and natural cookie flavors. It has a dreamy vanilla wafer taste in every sip, and is delightfully creamy. I thought it was sweet, strong, comforting, and a little familiar with that warm vanilla flavor and smooth richness.
You could compare Nilli Vanilli to Bailey’s, but we thought it tasted much better. The Beverage Tasting Institute actually awarded Nilli Vanilli a “Best of 2017” seal in the cream category of the International Review of Spirits, despite the fact that it contains no cream!
Nilli Vanilli is spiked generously with 14% alcohol by volume (ABV). And a standard 1.5-ounce serving contains just 90 calories, 6.6 grams sugar, and 3 grams fat. It’s a much lighter option than the popular dairy-based cream drinks – Bailey’s and Rumchata each contain about 140 calories and much more sugar per serving. But there isn’t a drop of sacrifice in the experience.
BOM BOM Fully Baked is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, but it’s also nut-free by ingredients. This unique drink is a blend of premium Caribbean rum, hemp seed “milk,” and natural brownie and cookie flavors. It rivals Nilli Vanilli in creaminess, but has delicious gentle underpinnings of chocolate in the flavor.
And don’t worry, Fully Baked doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, preservatives, or THC! Hemp seeds are not the same as marijuana, and hemp seed milk doesn’t contain that high-inducing chemical. It’s pure, clean, and rich in Omega 3 fatty acids.
Fully Baked has a smidgen more alcohol with 14.2% ABV. And the standard 1.5-ounce serving contains just 89 calories, 5 grams sugar, and 3 grams fat. Consequently, it tastes just a little lighter and less sweet than the Nilli Vanilli, but with the same rich satisfaction.
Shake Your BOM BOM Recipes
BOM BOM gave me some fun recipes to try out, including two holiday pie-inspired blends. They’re a delicious dairy-free way to #drinkyourpie – if you’re 21 or older of course!
This tastes like an adult version of pumpkin pie filling in a glass. Simply combine 3 parts Nilli Vanilli BOM BOM dairy-free liqueur with 1 part vodka (plain, vanilla, or chai) and a spoonful of pumpkin. I like to garnish the glass with crushed cookies for the “crust,” and add a little cinnamon. Get the detailed and printable recipe here.
This is a completely different blend that’s spiked with nostalgic yet grown-up flavors. To make it, combine 4 parts Fully Baked BOM BOM dairy-free liqueur with 1/2 part apple whiskey and 1/2 part cinnamon whiskey. I add a little ground cinnamon, too, and a pinch of ground nutmeg. And a cinnamon stir stick is almost essential! Get the detailed and printable recipe here.

Who is BOM BOM?
I love this story. BOM BOM Brands was founded by the husband and wife team of Kevin Mowers and Eva Maria Janerus, but it blossomed from when they were dating. To woo Eva Maria, Kevin deconstructed her favorite sweet treat, a Mounds Bar, and incorporated the flavors into a custom cocktail for her. She enjoyed it so much that she began asking him to make it for her and friends on a regular basis. They called it “BOM BOM” which is slang for “My Sweetie” in Spain. More fun experiments eventually led to the creation of Nilli Vanilli and Fully Baked, their dairy-free line.
