Home- made Baileys Irish Cream

Christmas time in our family calls for allot of home-made treats, we use this time of year to try and slow down a little and do some grass roots activities with our children from cooking to Christmas crafts and of course whats a Christmas without a brew of home-made baileys.

I know its probably quite inapropirate  these days to associate alcohol with anything child related but in my family its been tradition Santa likes a little glass of baileys with a small bowl of strawberries under the tree on Christmas eve. My kids are quite young so as far as they are concerned I'm just making up a drink with cream and a few other ingredients, only mummy and daddy know the little secret. b2ap3_thumbnail_Baileys-1.jpg

There are so many recipes on the internet all with variations but I've made this one a few times now and absolutely loved it each time.  Its quite a traditional recipe I don't really go trying to alter it to much as I'm happy with the result but I'm sure there are some creative readers out there that might like to alter the ingredients or ratio's. 


1 Cup of fresh cream (not long life)

1 Can of sweetened condensed milk (full cream, why not)

1 Teaspoon of instant coffee

1 2/3 Cup Good quality Irish Whiskey

2-3 Tablespoons of chocolate syrup

1 Teaspoon of organic vanilla extract

1/2 Teaspoon of coconut extract ( I use this rather than the traditional almond extract)


Now blend all your ingredients in a blender for around 30-40 seconds and then bottle.
