Mariah Carey launches new Irish cream liqueur called Black Irish

The drink, which has been in the making for the past two years, will be available in three flavours – Original, White Chocolate and Salted Caramel.

Mariah made the announcement on social media with a picture of her lying on a beach in a gold gown with a bottle of the new drink in front of her with the caption, “Two years in the making. Truly a cause for celebration!!! @goblackirish.”

The name of the liqueur pays tribute to Carey’s biracial background, as her mother Patricia Hickey was born and raised in the US to parents from County Cork, while her father Alfred Carey was an African-American Venezuelan.

Her mother worked as an opera singer and a vocal coach while her father worked as an engineer.

In her memoir ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’, she writes about her heritage and growing up as a biracial Irish-American in New York.

She also writes about her mother’s estranged relationship with her parents, who did not approve of her marriage.

β€œTo a certain extent, I know how my mother became who she is. Her mother certainly didn’t understand her.”
