Irish Cream Liqueur, most commonly known under the brand name Bailey’s, is my favorite after dinner drink to pair with dessert – or just drink as dessert!

Irish Cream Liqueur Recipe from

Two of my favorite flavors are chocolate and caramel, and my Irish Cream Liqueur recipe combines both tastes into a delicious drink. This rich, creamy beverage is super quick and easy to prepare. All you need is a blender! For my version, simply whirl together good quality Irish whiskey, sweetened condensed milk (adds the hint of caramel), heavy cream, amaretto, chocolate syrup, vanilla and coffee granules. Then carefully pour into airtight bottles and refrigerate for up to two months. I like to serve it straight up – just make sure it’s cold. Some of my friends like it on the rocks. It’s also delicious blended together with ice cream for a yummy adult milkshake. Or add it to hot chocolate on a cold winter night. The uses are endless – and all wonderfully scrumptious!
