Who knew you could make Irish Cream? It's a cream liqueur that we all have added to our coffee or sipped in front of a crackling fire. I have forever been a fan and when I started running across recipes that seemed relatively simple...
it was on.
I found several interesting ones and after getting home this evening began searching out the ingredients. Not in one recipe...did I have every item. You have done this and I have many times before: substituted this and that, so if you are shy of something... get creative and the result will be delicious!
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 c strong coffee
3/4 c high proof whiskey (I used 128.5 proof, the guide recipes called for 2 cups Irish Whiskey)
1 c half and half (I used fat free)
1 c heavy cream
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t almond extract
Pour all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a hand mixer until fully combined. Chill. Serve and enjoy. Keep in an enclosed container in the refrigerator.
Here I sit sipping the richest most elegant of concoctions.
Happy St. Patricks Day
