If you’re looking for a special St. Patrick’s Day sipper, here it is. Homemade Irish cream takes about 5 minutes in the blender. All you need is whisky, sweetened condensed milk, espresso powder, cocoa and cream. Blend and chill. (And while the blender is all Irish cream-y, you could add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream too…)
Note: To be truly an Irish cream, this would be made with whiskey—the preferred Irish spelling—but here in Canada it’s spelled whisky.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
the empty milk can full of whisky
half a can full of whipping or 18% cream
1 tbsp espresso powder
1 tbsp cocoa
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
Blend everything in a blender, then transfer into a glass jar, pitcher or bottle. Refrigerate for 2 hours; shake before serving over ice.
