Get the neighborhood singing or at least smiling with a gift of homemade cheer aka: Irish Cream.
DIY Irish Cream
1 cup Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon espresso powder
14 ounces (1 can) condensed sweetened milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
Blend all ingredients together in a blender for about one minute.
Pour mixture into sealable glass jars or bottles and seal. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Keep refrigerated. Shake well before serving.
These are our favorite bottles as they are easy to seal.
We like having a few bottles of our homemade Irish Cream
on hand to send home with friends who drop by. Giving handmade heartfelt gifts is a great way to celebrate the holidays.
Enjoy your Irish cream liqueur on the rocks, add a splash to your coffee, pour it over ice cream, or use it for baked goods (cakes, muffins, donuts, cupcakes, brownies, pies, etc.)
