    Irish Cream

    Had to tweak the recipe a bit.

    Scots Irish Cream (Revised 2-4-18)*

    1 14 oz can condensed sweetened milk (save the can to measure the other stuff)
    1 15 oz can of evaporated milk)
    14 ozs cheap scotch whisky
    4 t. Instant Expresso coffee (mixed with a small amount of hot water to make a slurry)
    3 t. chocolate syrup (prefererable Nestles and not Hersheys)
    1 t. vanilla extract
    1/2 t. almond extract

    Dump all in a big plastic pitcher with a pour spout and beat it with the stick blender. Dump it into a suitable glass jug and store in the ice box. Think it should last a month or two.

    Yes its mighty tasty. But the dirty dogs use vodka (neutral spirits) for the likker ration. That just dont seem right. I usually snag St Brendens since its made by nice Catholic Monks using real irish Whisky (cheap scotch). It just seems more Kosher or something and its cheaper than Baileys. Some of the low budget folks around here drink Carolinas. I was not impressed. lol.

    I thought the original recipe you posted said something like...afters years of testing...

    What happened?

    This one is totally different than last nights.

    Well its a long but interesting story which involves women. I havent made any of the stuff in a while and it takes a while to get back in the groove. Had to relearn some lessons. Lesson one is evaporated milk has a much richer flavor and viscosity than half n half..which the Warden insisted I use since we had some. Relearned that Hersheys Chocalate syrup is not as good as Nestles..and then it was just a matter of tweaking the coffee. After the current batch is gone I am going to make it as above. Think it will be superior. lol.

    Let me know when you have it "just right"

    I'm going to make some from your recipe.

    Mmm Irish Cream. My dad used to give this to us when we were kids as a treat if we behaved at the dinner table with guests over. Without my mom's consent. After an equal amount of Drambui.

    Bailey's is good. Carolan's is better. Forty Creek (also owns Carolan's) did an irish cream with dark Rum instead of Whisky, and is still top of my list.

    I never thought to make my own.. now my heading is churning with all the possible substitutes. Thanks for sharing!

    This is my recipe. I can't drink the stuff from the store any more:

    1- 14 oz. Can of sweetened condensed milk (I usually make my own with less sugar)
    1 cup Half and Half
    2 Tbsp. Dark chocolate syrup (Torini's)
    2 Tbsp instant coffee granules (Medaglia Doro Instant Espresso is my fav)
    1 ½ tsp. Vanilla (homemade is best)
    1 ½ tsp. Almond extract
    1 ½ cups Irish whiskey (I use Feckin Irish Whiskey - mid range in cost, great flavor)

    Throw everything in the blender, blend well. Store in the fridge.
