It’s 9AM and I may or may not have had a shot of Jameson Whiskey.
You’ve got to taste what you make before you give it as a gift- fact.
This is a make-while-you’re-frying-eggs and-serve-with-coffee-at-breakfast kind of homemade beverage. Super quick. Super simple.
I don’t know what it is about winter, but everything seems better with a mug of something warm. And for some of us, we like to warm ourselves up with the help of a little alcohol as well. Enter: Bailey’s.
This liqueur is mild, too. You could even drink it on a weekend with breakfast and be able to get through that pile of laundry with a smile, knowing how easy it was to prepare and clean up afterwards. Dare I say, this recipe is easy like a Sunday morning?? No? Too much?
Okay, so here’s the rundown of this recipe.
Step 1: Bust out that blender.
Step 2: Gather ingredients.
- One can of sweetened condensed milk
- One cup of half and half
- 1-2 cups of good Irish whiskey
- 3 TBSP chocolate syrup
- 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tsp instant coffee
Step 3: Pour all ingredients into said blender and let that baby purr for about 20 seconds
Step 4: Drink. Chill leftovers (if there are any).
**I tripled this recipe and it filled my Vitamix to the very top. This yeilded three large mason jars worth of homemade Bailey’s Liqueur.
***This liqueur does not discriminate on being served in a mug of hotness or s glass of coldness (Bailey’s on ice, while less caffeinated, may be more appropriate while in a hot holiday kitchen or in the middle of a heated family debate).
