Description

Instead of going to the store to buy some Bailey’s, try your hand at making your own. It was quite easy and very good!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Instant Espresso Granules
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Powdered Sugar
  • ¾ cups Heavy Cream, Divided
  • ¾ cups Milk
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14oz)
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 1-½ cup Irish Whiskey
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

1. In a small bowl, mix together the espresso, cocoa powder, cinnamon, powdered sugar, and 3 Tablespoons of heavy cream. Stir until dissolved and set aside.

2. Pour all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl, then add the cocoa espresso mixture.

3. Use an immersion blender to incorporate all ingredients together for 20-30 seconds until your mixture is smooth. If you do not have an immersion blender a traditional blender on pulse or puree will work as well.

4. Pour it into your favorite sealable containers. Let the drink sit overnight for all the flavors to blend together.

5. Be sure to give it a good shake before using and enjoy your homemade Irish cream for up to 2 months. Store in refrigerator.

I am simply boggled–I had no idea one could make one’s own Irish Cream! Can’t wait to try this. However, could you recommend a specific brand of Irish whiskey? I don’t know enough about it to make a wise choice.

Wow! This is great. I looked at a lot of Irish cream recipes and settled on this one. So glad I did. I am making my second batch tonight.
