Easy Homemade Irish Cream Recipe

Make Your Own Irish Cream

I have a great way for you to celebrate St. Patrick's Day: make your own Irish cream! More commonly known as Baileys, this rich, smooth, and delicious liquor can easily be made in the comforts of your kitchen. The recipe, which requires a blender, is similar to eggnog in that it combines a potent spirit, Irish whiskey, with eggs, cream, and seasonings such as vanilla and coconut extracts.

For a delightful after-dinner drink, serve it chilled or over ice. Homemade Baileys is also a festive gift; I've brought bottles to hostesses and always receive enthusiastic reviews. Get the simple but fantastic recipe.

Made the non alcoholic version of it on Monday to mix with some icing for cupcakes. Not bad at all.

I would say it lasts a couple of days and lots of cocktails have raw eggs.
