The two brunch staples are kicking off celebrations by taking your regular bagel and coffee order to the next level

NEW YORK, NY (March 3rd, 2022) – St. Patrick’s Day brunch is the kick-off to celebrations, typically consisting of the essentials: Baileys, coffee and bagels. But what happens when you combine everyone’s favorite brunch items? The most epic (and delicious) St. Patrick’s Day brunch yet. Baileys Original Irish Cream, the first spirit to combine two of Ireland’s most unapologetically delicious ingredients: rich dairy cream and Irish Whiskey, is partnering with iconic New York-based bagel institution, Ess-a-Bagel, to level up your brunch plans and give your regular bagel and coffee order an Irish makeover. Introducing the Baileys x Ess-a-Bagel St. Patrick’s Day Brunch Box featuring the first-ever cream cheese infused with the flavor of Baileys Original Irish Cream Liqueur (non-alcoholic)* – a must try holiday treat available to order today for nationwide shipping beginning Monday, March 14 through Thursday, March 17, 2022; and those in New York City can soon stop by the exclusive pop-up to pair their bagels with Baileys and coffee (because nobody does brunch like New Yorkers!).

The Baileys x Ess-a-Bagel Brunch Box includes a half pound of the first-ever non-alcoholic cream cheese infused with the flavor of Baileys featuring rich cocoa and vanilla flavors, 12 of Ess-a-Bagel’s Shamrock Green bagels, 6 Mini Green & White cookies, a pound of silky Nova, a half-pound of Spread of the customer’s choice, a cream cheese spreader, and 1 bag of Lavazza ¡Tierra!

About Ess-a-Bagel
Ess-a-Bagel was established in 1976 by Florence and Gene Wilpon and Florence's brother Aaron Wenzelberg. Coming from an Austrian baking family, the art of baking or crafting the perfect bagel came naturally to them. Within two years of opening, Ess-a-Bagel was voted #1 in the Tri-State area and had attracted a loyal following. In 2013, Florence passed away. Her sister Muriel Frost and her niece Melanie Frost took over the operation.

Florence always had a passion for the bagel business. It was her baby, and she nurtured and grew it with the same ingredient that continues to set Ess-a-Bagel apart today:  A LOT OF LOVE! Ess-a-Bagel continues to provide hungry New Yorkers with the city's best bagel. Hand rolled, boiled and baked on premises daily, our delicious crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside bagel is the quintessential New York Bagel.
