Uncle Goldie's Irish Cream ~ Foamheart

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

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


1C           Cream

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.

Thanks for the recipe!! I might have to whip up a batch m'self.

Years back there was this little neighborhood Irish bar I frequented all to often. There was, of course, the prerequisite waitress/barmaid named Molly, with whom we were all hopelessly in love. Anyway, one evening, she leaned over the bar and said to me "Andrew, have you ever tasted a warm, creamy bush?". Once I regained the ability to speak, I commented that I wasn't sure what she meant. She put a shot glass in front of me containing equal parts Bailey's, Bushmill's and hot coffee. It was absolutely delicious.

After many experiments I make a similar clone which goes like this.


2 cans Evaporated milk

2 cans sweetened condensed milk

3 cups cheap scotch whiskey (aka Irish Whiskey)
3 T. instant expresso coffee

3 T. Nestles Chocolate syrup (dont use Hershsheys or it tastes like chocolate milk)

1 T. vanilla extract

2 t. almond extract


Dissolve the coffee and chocolate in a little hot water. Mix everything together in a big glass jar and beat it profusely with the stick blender. Poor it up and store in the ice box. Will keep at least a month. Can make a person chunk rocks at Baileys.

I like your recipe, but you're liable to start a global conflict with statements like that. Irishmen tend to get pretty prickly when their whisky is maligned.

I will try this recipe, then  make me  a warm creamy bush!

Ok...feel free to juggle the coffee and chocolate syrup to suit. Think I enjoy those flavors. Shoulda apologized in advance over the Irish Whisky joke..lol. Actually scotch and milk is a nice flavor combo. That is how all the working girls survive the evenings...and is a very good choice for any with tummy issues..ulcers etc. over ice of course. Reminds me of low cal egg nog. Course Baileys got rich putting vodky down in there. That just dont seem right. That is why we insist on St. Brendens. Real Irish hooch down in that one..and I like to help support them poor old broke Irish monks and nuns etc. It can make us old Scots/Irish Black Irish feel we are doing good deeds...maybe escape Purgatory early etc..lol.
