Irish Cream

My husband and I like to enjoy an occasional glass of Irish Cream on the rocks. Instead of paying the high price of purchasing a bottle, I knew there had to be a way to make it at home. After flipping through old cookbooks I found a recipe that called for ingredients I had in my pantry. The recipe I used called for Scotch, however I am sure you could swap that for some Jameson. Whip up a batch and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!

Homemade Bailey's Irish Cream | Jamie's Recipes

1c Scotch
2 c 1/2 & 1/2
2 tsp instant coffee granules
2 tsp vanilla
1- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1.  Blend well and chill.
2.  Keep refrigerated. ENJOY!

* I thought it tasted a little Scotchy, I would recommend using 3/4 c first and add more according to your taste preferences.

    Looks delicious! A wonderful way to celebrate St Pats. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was given the cranberry syrup by a friend a while back. I have not seen it anywhere around here (I too live in Nebraska) but you can make your own.

    Cranberry syrup

    1 tablespoon water
    1/4 cup sugar
    6 ounces (1/4 bag) frozen or fresh cranberries
    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

    To prepare the syrup
    Combine the water, sugar and cranberries and heat in a small pan over medium-low heat.
    Simmer for about 2-3 minutes or until cranberries pop. Drain cranberries through a sieve.
    Cool completely and add lime juice.

    Please stop by anytime. Glad to find some other Omaha bloggers! :)
