This Irish cream recipe is super easy to make and is very similar in taste to store bought brands but is much less expensive. It is a beautiful gift from your kitchen as well.
I have made this recipe with Tenesee whiskey, bourbon, Scotch and Irish whiskey. I have to say that I prefer the Irish one hands down. It lends to a smoother cream. However, if you cannot find it please do not hesitate to make this anyway.
I have also found that you will need the full fat in the milk and cream to make this. If you use low fat versions you will not have the same result.
Depending on the cream you are using you might find that the cream separates in the bottle. Simply give it a good shake before serving and that will be solved. I find that it is better to keep this in the refrigerator.
