Homemade Irish Cream

No! It’s not a cake recipe, I know. This is a handy recipe to have all the same though, you can mix up a batch in 10 minutes and store it in the refrigerator ready for entertaining, after dinner drinks and parties. Beautiful straight up with ice and great in coffee too. I have noticed that there are a few variations to this recipe, but since we have only ever made this one, it’s impossible to say which is the best. Looks like we will have to try some of them out. Life can be tough sometimes! We have also invented our own milkshake using Irish Cream as one of the ingredients, but we will keep that for another time. Have fun experimenting with this one.

Ingredients

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can carnation evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups whisky
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon glycerine
1 dessertspoon instant coffee dissolved in boiling water and cooled

Method

Mix all of the ingredients together and pour into a bottle

Hints

This homemade Irish Cream will last in the refrigerator for approximately 1 month
Serve straight up over ice or mix with milk and blend using a milk shake machine or stick blender
Experiment with the quantities of ingredients i.e. add or reduce whisky and condensed milk to alter the taste
