Homemade Irish Cream liqueur

Anyone else love Bailey’s? Anyone else NOT love the price of Bailey’s? I haven’t bought ready made Bailey’s in over 5 years and this recipe is the reason. Tastes just like the ‘real’ thing and is pretty much goof-proof.

Ingredients:

1 cup light cream

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 2/3 cup Canadian Club whiskey (of course Irish whiskey works beautifully but I’m a patriotic Canuck   thusly CC it always is)

1 heaping tsp instant coffee granules

2 tbsp chocolate syrup

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp almond extract

Directions:

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Bottle and store in fridge until ready to use. This has never lasted in my fridge long enough to go bad (whoops) so I am unable to give you a definite length of time it is safe to drink before expiring. Exercise common sense.

Yield: 4 cups
