The alcoholic drink is in stores now and available in three different flavours.

Songstress Mariah Carey has launched a new Irish cream liqueur called “Black Irish” on Monday night.

Announcing the news on Twitter on Monday, Carey said that the project had been “two years in the making”.

“Introducing Black Irish. Two years in the making. Truly a cause for celebration,” she penned.

According to the website for the alcoholic drink, Black Irish in stores now and is available in three flavors – Original, White Chocolate, and Salted Caramel

The Original blend is described as a “rich luxurious liqueur with aromas of freshly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and warm spices”, meanwhile, White Chocolate is said to be “silky, creamy, and smooth” with a “slightly more refined and subtle chocolate flavour”.

The Salted Caramel blend is described as “rich and creamy with sweet buttery notes of caramel and a touch of salt.”

The name of Carey’s drink may be a nod to her Irish-American heritage as her mother, opera star Patricia Hickey, was born and raised in the US to parents from County Cork.

Know any Mariah fans who will be “Obsessed” with this idea?
