Homemade Irish Cream liqueur

November 22, 2008 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized)

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.


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


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
