With the holidays almost here…if you need a quick and easy gift…consider making Irish Cream Liquor. It’s less expensive and tastier than Baileys!
First, you’ll need some empty bottles. I’ve been saving wine bottles, so I took four of them, soaked them in hot water for 5-10 minutes, used a rough cleaning pad to rub the labels off, and then sprayed Goo Gone on to remove the sticky residue. You can also use olive oil, nail polish remover or white vinegar to rub the residue off. I found a number of recipes on Pinterest for Irish Cream, so I combined a few of them and have the ingredients listed below.
- 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 1 2/3 cup Irish whiskey
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons Hershey’s chocolate syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth (less than a minute). Pour into your bottle and refrigerate. It will stay good for at least a month. I made three batches, which filled four bottles and half of another (for me)!
It’s quick, easy and yummy!!
