Irish Cream

Here they are! Three authentic recipes that closely resemble the Irish Cream liqueurs imbibing grown-ups know and love! Each recipe is subtly different from the next, and each is delicious. 

When you don’t know what to give and don’t have a lot of money with which to give it, a decanter of homemade Irish Cream makes a great holiday gift! Sip it straight or or make a Special CoffeeAdd half-a-jigger of Irish Cream and half-a-jigger of coffee-flavored liqueur to a mug of hot coffee. Spritz with whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shot. Youve got yourself a party!

Dogs mustn’t have chocolate. Too bad those working hard in Santa’s workshop can’t enjoy this holiday recipe treat!

Irish Cream #1:

3/4 c. Irish whiskey
1-1/4 c. (10 oz. or 300 mL can) sweetened condensed milk 
3/4 c. light cream
1/3 c. chocolate syrup
2 eggs

Combine all in blender. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake before serving. Makes approximately 3 c. Keeps 2-to-3 weeks.

Irish Cream #2:

1-1/2 c. rye whiskey 
1-1/4 c. (10 oz. or 300 mL can) sweetened condensed milk 
1 c. light cream
2 tsp. sifted cocoa powder
1-1/2 tsp. instant coffee
2 medium eggs

Combine all in blender. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake before serving. Makes approximately 4 c. Keeps 2-to-3 weeks.


Irish Cream #3:

1 c. brandy or rye whiskey
1-1/4 c. (10 oz. or 300 mL can) sweetened condensed milk 
One (1-1/2 c. or 370 mL) can evaporated milk
1-1/2 tsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. instant coffee
2 eggs

Combine all in blender. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake before serving. Makes approximately 4 c. Keeps 2-to-3 weeks.

Mad-as-Hell Note: Canadian consumers are being ripped off. Them’s fightin’ words, but they’re also true words. Refrigerated dairy products such as whipping cream and table cream, shelf-stable goods such as skim milk powder, and canned goods such as sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk have had size decreases of as much as 25% with corresponding price increases. 

Home cooks have complained that older recipes don’t work as well because the proportions are out of whack. Knowing that, I’ve recalculated what needed recalculating in the recipes above, which should work just fine. I don’t blame cooks for being angry. So am I.
