DIY Irish Cream- Homemade



Irish Cream you  say, homemade you say. YUMMY, I say 🙂


I started to make homemade “Baileys” over 20 years ago. It is crazy easy to make, is much cheaper than store bought and is delicious. Irish cream is great on the rocks, in mixed drinks and one of my favourites…in hot, black coffee. Homemade Irish Cream, “Baileys” makes a wonderful gift. For the recipes below, whip it up, pour into  seal-able containers, decorate and you have gifts for more than 8 people.  Or keep it for yourself, even better.baileys

For those who love Irish Cream and like to know the ingredients of what they are drinking, this if for you. I have used 2 different recipes over the years. One recipe includes eggs, so I will share both just in case we have a “Baileys” lover who cannot use eggs.

Homemade Irish Cream 1- Ingredients

  • 8 oz whiskey(I have used the good stuff like Crown Royal or the less expensive. Go with what you like)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 can eagle brand(condensed milk)
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream
  • 1.5 tbsp chocolate syrup(Hershey’s or Nesquik)
  • Dash vanilla extract
  • Dash coconut  extract

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds or more. Must be refrigerated with a 2 week expiration. Shake before consuming.

Homemade Irish Cream 2- Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whipping cream
  • 1 can Eagle Brand(condensed milk)
  • 1 and 2/3 cups whiskey(Irish or other)
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules
  • 2 tablespoons 1.5 tbsp chocolate syrup(Hershey’s or Nesquik)
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract(optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds or more. Must be refrigerated with a 2 week expiration. Shake before consuming.

Another gift idea would be to include the recipe card with the decorated, sealed container. This will inform the recipient of the ingredients and they can enjoy for years to come.
