Homemade Irish Cream
Let’s get the Saint Patrick’s Day party started with this copycat Bailey’s cream liquor!
Homemade Irish cream is made from a mix of cream, sweetener, cocoa and a fine Irish whiskey!
This flavorful liquor is easy to make, and fresher than the store bought version!
Splurge a little and enjoy this liquor on its own, add it to coffee like you would a creamer or use it in a cocktail like this Bailey’s Irish Martini.
