Homemade Irish Cream


If you like Irish Cream, you will love this one. This recipe is the final result of several attempts to get the perfect balance of taste and creaminess. I think you will agree that this drink is not heavy, but it still has that creamy texture that you want. I make this around the holidays because it makes a great alternative to bringing a bottle of wine to someone’s house (especially when they are not wine drinkers).  It has always been well received. It is a great after dinner/dessert drink.


1 – 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
1 – 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 – cup heavy cream
2 – tbls. chocolate syrup
1 – tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 – tsp. honey
1/4 – cup Kahlua (or any coffee liqueur)
1 1/4 – cups whiskey


Put all ingredients into a blender and mix well. Do not over blend. It should take less than one minute.

Bottle and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Shake well before serving, and pour over ice.
