Pete and I both enjoy having a glass of Bailey's at the holidays, so I thought it might be fun to make some from scratch. I found out that it was super easy and ridiculously delicious. So much yummier than the premade stuff!
There are a bunch of recipes out there, but they are mostly all about the same. Here's a recipe I cobbled together to create my own version:
Holiday Irish Cream Recipe
1 cup Jameson's Irish Whiskey
1 14 oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Tbsp. good quality Chocolate Syrup
2 tsp. Espresso Powder (I get mine from King Arthur Flour)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
Blend everything except the whipping cream in a blender for about a minute. Add the whipping cream and blend until combined (only a few seconds).
Pour into a pretty bottle or jar and refrigerate. Shake before using. Should keep for about 3-4 weeks.
