I actually try to eat pretty healthy most of the time, and that includes not drinking as much. Of course, I still love having my glass of wine (or two) with dinner sometimes. However, since I have not shared a cocktail recipe in awhile, and St. Patrick's Day is approaching, I figured I would booze it up for this blog post and share my Homemade Irish Cream recipe! My husband was also quite excited when I told him I would be making it again for him, since he likes his Irish drinks!
Making your own Irish cream is really very simple. There are a few different ways that you can make it, but this is the recipe that I have come up with after a few years of trying and combining various recipes that I have researched online.
Homemade Irish CreamIngredients:
-1 cup heavy cream
-1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
-1 ½ cups Irish whisky (optional - leave out if you want the non-alcoholic version, just know that it will be a lot thicker without the alcohol)
-2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
-1 teaspoon instant coffee
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-½ teaspoon almond extract (optional)
Place all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend, pour, sip, enjoy!
See, wasn't that easy!? It is actually a bit dangerous to know how easy it is to make this, which is why I have to try and only think about this time of year.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
