I mentioned this before as faux Baileys, well its close and it is Irish Cream. Seems everyone was more interested in the faux Baileys than the Tia Maria so, I had to polish off what was in the fridge to make more. Would ya mind asking for it again, soon?
With the cost of the liqueurs going up I decided to find a more fun way to get it. Plus you can adjust it to suit your tastes. Cons, its short lived, 3 to 6 months. It is a dairy product so it requires refrigeration. Make sure what ever you store it in has a tight lid because you'll need to shake it vigorously before using.
There is your ingredients. I use heavy cream, why? Because i like it for the Baileys. You can use light cream or half & half, but whole milk is just too thin. I guess maybe that is why its not called Irish milk.
Add a can of sweetened condensed milk, Mom always used Eagle brand so I saw no need to change.
Next its instant coffee (of course its Community Dark Roast) and chocolate syrup. I had Hershey's this time, I have used Torani. Warning: adding extra chocolate do not make it better.
I used Jamison Irish whiskey because it was the first bottle of Irish whiskey I came across in the liquor cabinet. Suit yourself. This is where you can adjust to your personal preference.
Everything is better with a touch of vanilla, I have used the seed paste before and it does taste better, but this is good enough for my booze.
Put in the fruit jar (y'all gonna think I am just an old country boy), and turn on the music, KC and the Sunshine Band, "Shake Your Booty". Guess that dispels that country boy stuff....LOL "I ain't even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!".
Uncle Goldie's Irish Cream Recipe
14 oz Sweetened Condense Milk
1 1/2C Irish Whiskey
1t instant coffee (crystals)
2T chocolate syrup
1cap Vanilla extract
Optional: 1t of almond, I can't taste the difference so I omit it, but maybe your taste buds are younger than mine.
I hope ya can try it, nothing really special. BTW Tia Maria, Irish Cream, and a shot of vodka = the "Ultimate Russian"
Thank you for checking it out.
