Homemade Irish Cream


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

Cooking Instructions

Step 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.

Step 2: Add the rest of the cream, while stirring, or gently whisking.

Step 3: Add the whiskey, vanilla, and condensed milk and blend everything well.

Step 4: Pour the mixture into a bottle with a top, and refrigerate until needed.

Step 5: This will keep in the fridge for at least a couple of months, and probably longer, but we’re pretty sure you’ll polish it off by then!
