December 20, 2011: Homemade Irish Cream Recipe

Bookmark and Share
Here’s another adult beverage very popular around the holidays that’s easy to make yourself (much less expensive, too) and enjoy while sitting around the fireplace on Christmas Eve. It’s not recommended that you give this one as a gift because of the raw eggs (in fact, it’s safer to use pasteurized eggs if you don’t have fresh from the coop eggs like I do; do be aware of health concerns related to raw eggs).

Irish Cream Liqueur

1 ¾ cup Irish whiskey (good quality)
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whipping cream
4 eggs
2 T. chocolate flavored syrup
2 t. instant coffee
1 t. vanilla extract
½ t. almond extract

Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve chilled. Do not store leftovers; drink the same day.

Makes 5 cups
