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.
I plan to have a tame St. Patrick's Day, but this is too cool not to pass on. I, unfortunately, gave up ice cream for Lent, but my mates agree: It's delicious!
