Copycat Baileys Irish Cream


Here's a great alternative to purchasing commercial Irish Cream- make your own! It's less expensive, and you can control the amount of alcohol in it- use more or less, according to your preference. This Copycat Baileys Irish Cream was very well-received at a recent gathering.



Copycat Baileys Irish Cream

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup bourbon whiskey
1/2 cup whipping cream (not whipped)
1/2 cup half and half cream
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 to 3 teaspoons instant coffee, or to taste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pour all ingredients into a clean quart jar with a lid. Cap tightly and shake until well combined. Serve. Refrigerate leftovers; it keeps for several weeks. Contents will separate during refrigeration- shake or stir before serving. Makes about 21 (1.5 oz.) shots.

Sweet and rich, Irish Cream makes makes a great after dinner drink...
and delicious Irish Coffee.

Notes:
1. Some of the recipes I have read call for putting all the ingredients into a blender to combine. You can certainly do that. I just didn't want to wash my blender. :) You can use a whisk if you like.
2. Many recipes I read called for "1 cup of light cream" instead of my 1/2 cup whipping cream and 1/2 cup half and half. Light cream isn't "diet" or "lite", it just refers to the fat content. Half and half has the least fat, then light cream, then whipping cream. If you combine equal amounts of half and half and whipping cream, you get a product that equals the fat content of light cream. The reason I am telling you all of this is that I couldn't find light cream in any of my local stores, so I worked out this substitute. If you can find light cream and want to use it (instead of the half and half and whipping cream), it will work. I have also seen recipes call for an entire cup of whipping cream.
