This is a fun recipe for St. Patrick's Day and can be a great gift idea for any occasion. Sweet, creamy and one of my favorite drinks.

Homemade Irish Cream (Baileys)
Makes a little over 3 cups

1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon instant coffee crystals
1 1/2 cup heavy cream

Add sweetened condensed milk, whiskey, chocolate syrup, vanilla and coffee to a blender and blend until coffee crystals dissolve, about 1 minute.

Add heavy cream to mixture and blend a few more seconds. Keep refrigerated. Should keep for about 2 weeks or to the expiration that is on your heavy cream.

Enjoy over ice cubes...

or over ice cream (vanilla or coffee would be great) or add a little in a cup of coffee.

This also is a fun gift idea. Pour into glass bottles (you can find a variety of bottles at Hobby Lobby, here is a coupon link for 40% off a regular priced item) or use a mason jar. Add a tag saying "Homemade Irish Cream" and on the back of the tag include instructions to keep refrigerated and the expiration date.

This looks even richer than Baileys, and how satisfying to make it at home!
