For my mom’s birthday, I’ve made her one of her favorite drinks – Baileys Irish Cream. She has a little in her coffee most nights after dinner, so I know this will get used right up. After doing a little research on the ingredients, I wrote the the following recipe:
– 1 Cup Light Cream
– 14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
– 1 Cup Irish Whiskey
– 1 Teaspoon Instant Espresso Coffee
– 2 Tablespoons Chocolate Syrup
– 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bourbon
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour into a sealed container and refrigerate. Shake before using. From what I’ve read, your homemade Baileys should last up to two months — if it doesn’t get consumed long before the expiration date.
From the beginning, I had a hard time believing that this was actually going to taste anything like Baileys, but to my surprise, it does [I think it’s even better].
