Instructions to Make Homemade Irish Cream ~ this Do-It-Yourself Bailys Irish Cream is an ideal duplicate feline of one of my #1 mixers. It’s perilously scrumptious, and ludicrously simple to make. Get your #1 Irish bourbon and some great new cream… and get ready to be stunned.

Irish Cream has consistently been a top choice of mine, and this without any preparation rendition tastes far superior to the packaged stuff. However much I love the first, there is something slightly questionable about packaged cream. New fixings take this exemplary Irish alcohol to an unheard of level.

It’s right on the money, I wouldn’t transform it in any capacity, and I energetically suggest stirring up a clump for St Patrick’s Day. You can serve it on the rocks, in a White Russian, or in an after supper espresso. I like it straight up in small vintage heartfelt glasses. In the event that you have any plans that call for Irish Cream, utilize this all things considered.

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp instant coffee or instant espresso
  • 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk


  1. Put a tablespoon of the cream in a bowl and add the espresso and cocoa powder. Mix these together until both powders are completely dissolved and there are no lumps.
  2. Add the rest of the cream, while stirring, or gently whisking.
  3. Add the whiskey, vanilla, and condensed milk and blend everything well. Note: alternatively you can put everything in a blender and blend briefly to combine. Don’t blend too long or you can risk whipping the cream.
  4. Pour the mixture into a bottle with a top, and refrigerate until needed.
  5. This will keep in the fridge for at least a couple of months, and probably longer, but I’m pretty sure you will polish it off before then 😉

notes and variations

  • Lighten this up by using half and half instead of heavy cream.
  • Add more espresso or more cocoa powder to change the flavor profile to your particular liking.
  • For more DIY liqueurs try my ultra-rich pumpkin liqueur, or, my Nutella liqueur.
  • For a lighter, fruitier experience, try homemade fruit liqueurs ~ these fresh fruit infused vodkas make great cocktail mixers.
