How to make your own Irish Cream Liqueur


From what I've been told, when temperatures fall, liquor stores start selling more Bailey's Irish Cream and Kaluha and such. For people like me, who don't partake, I feel like I'm missing out on a popular cold-weather activity. So, when I came across this recipe for homemade Irish Cream Liquour, via Bon Appetit, I thought I could finally join in the fun. The entire recipe follows, but omitting the whiskey would still make a deliciously creamy, chocolaty coffee flavoring.


  • 1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee crystals
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon canned sweetened cream of coconut


Head on over to Skip to my Lou to see how it all comes together.

At a dinner part a few weeks ago a friend brought some home-made "Bailey's" and it was fantastic.
