Irish Cream Ideas and Recipes:

Baileys on the rocks is wonderful. You can also add some to coffee on a chilly winter day.

In a glass full of ice, add 1 ounce of vodka and 1 ounce of coffee liqueur, fill with homemade Irish cream.

Add to hot chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon and top with whipping cream.

What a great way to save money and treat yourself.

This recipe takes 30 days and is from topsecretrecipes.com. 


1-1/2 TBS instant coffee
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 cups water
2 cups vodka
1-1/2 TBS vanilla extract

Mix the water, coffee and sugar together in a covered saucepan over high heat.  Bring mixture to a boil and continue to boil for 10 minutes.  Make sure it doesn’t boil over. 

Remove mixture from the heat and let cool for five minutes.  Add vodka and vanilla.  Stir and pour into the empty 750 ml bottle you want to keep it in. 

Be certain that you use a covered saucepan when making this drink.  The alcohol will coil away if the solution is not covered when it gets hot.

Close bottles tightly and keep in a cool dark place for at least 30 days.
