Happy Hour: Homemade Baileys

A couple of years ago I stumbled upon this recipe for a homemade version of Baileys Irish Cream. I love Baileys — it's an exceptional dessert drink —and this frothy version is to die for. I've made it for parties, given it as a hostess gift, and simply enjoyed it by myself.

It's one of my most treasured recipes and I highly recommend you make it. All you need is a blender and it comes together in minutes. For best results, chill the ingredients before making. To take a look at how it's done,

I made this w/o the coconut and it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO yummy. Better than the store bought. The eggs are fine with the whiskey. So delish thanks for posting!

If the reason for not using raw eggs is contamination, remember that alcohol is an antiseptic...

My Mom has been making a similar recipe for years & has passed it along to my sister & myself. I don't have the recipe in front of me, but I think we use almond extract instead of coconut & I know we add some instant coffee for flavor...the rest sounds pretty similar though. I know a lot of people look forward to getting a homemade bottle of baileys from us every year & I'd hate to disappoint them!

This is so going into my sister's holiday gift basket!! She is a total Baileys lover! I might omit the eggs, not from a health standpoint, but because she is allergic to them. This sounds so yummy! :drool:

...Why's everyone freaking out over eggs? Seriously, it's eggs. Not aliens with ray guns.

Baileys is the beverage of choice in my family! It has been for years, so I think this would be excellent for family gatherings during summertime. :COCKTAIL: Since I can see my breath outside, and am wearing a sweater inside, I'd say this wouldn't be my first choice right now...

hmm... raw eggs, fresh cream. I guess you could substitue Egg Beaters of something similar, which is lower cholesterol and pastuerized. This is interesting, but I thik I'll jsut stick to the real deal though - it doesn't have to be refrigerated!

blondelawyer: I don't think so. Many cocktails have raw eggs in them. Look at egg nog, for example.

Does something in the alcohol "cook" the eggs? Just wondering!

Oh to be sure. Jack O Daniels will work fine. Going to chill some up in the O kitchen tonite.
