Make Your Own Irish Cream Liqueur

Irish Cream liqueur is delicious served straight, or on the rocks, in a glass. But it’s particularly pleasing added to hot coffee, with a generous topping of whipped cream and a light dusting of cocoa powder.

Next time you’re hosting a dinner party, or just having friends over for coffee, make your own Irish Cream Liqueur. You won’t save money by concocting this creamy beverage yourself, but you will feel incredibly clever and your guests are sure to be impressed. In fact, you might also want to make some Irish Cream to use as holiday gifts. Pour the mixture into an attractive bottle and seal with a cork or lid and store in the refrigerator. When it's time to exchange gifts, attach a holiday card that says the bottle must be refrigerated immediately.


1 3/4 c. good Irish whiskey (Jameson’s brand is excellent)

1 (14 oz. ) can sweetened condensed milk

1 c. whipping cream (straight from the carton, unwhipped)

4 eggs

2 Tbsp. chocolate syrup

2 tsp.instant coffee

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. almond extract

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into an attractive glass bottle and tightly cover. Store in the refrigerator. Stir before serving. Makes about 5 cups.

This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month, but it probably won't last that long!
