Irish Cream Liqueur Recipe
Irish Cream Liqueur is a Christmas favorite at our home. We save it as a special treat for each December and never make it any other time.
This Irish Cream is fantastic for several reasons; flavour it is just so good, has no food colouring unlike the brand name varieties, the chocolate is optional making it perfect for allergy sufferers. It is less expensive than the purchased Irish cream and I think it has the same amount of flavour.
Any brand of whiskey will work. Hubs makes it using a less expensive rye whiskey, but I make it with it good quality Crown Royal.
This recipe is super simple to make you simply add all the following ingredients into a blender.
2 cups whiskey
1 can condensed milk
1 cup half and half cream
1 vanilla bean
2 large eggs
1 heaping tsp instant coffee
1 tsp instant chocolate mix (optional)
You can use a teaspoon of vanilla extract instead of a vanilla bean. If you are using a vanilla bean slice down the center of vanilla bean and then scrape out the paste in the middle.
Blend everything until well mixed. Pour into a bottle, it is much easier with a funnel. Even one of the dollar store works.
Irish Cream will keep in the fridge for up to two months. The large bottle in the picture holds two recipes of the Irish Cream and it will keep through December.
I like to have a label on my bottle, the bottle I used is large so I added it with double-sided tape.
Here is the label for the Irish Cream.
We mainly use the Irish Cream in our coffee.
