I am not a coffee fan, sometimes I will drink 1/2 coffee, and 1/2 cappuchino. I am going to make this, if I can afford the whiskey. This sounds heavenly! This recipe leaves you a lot of room to play around with. I will post the recipe as was written. It is basically up to your 'taste' and your 'druthers', I want this, druther than the other one. Sorry, I turned redneck. Try this with your own druthers.

How to Make Homemade Baileys Irish Cream Recipe


  1. Combine all ingredients in blender, on high, for 30 seconds. Comments posted on site of recipe, preferred to use hand mixer on medium speed till just blended, others preferred using wire whisk.(reason being, if not careful, using heavy cream, could turn into butter) Could use half and half.
  2. Place in tightly sealed container and refrigerate.
    Shake before using. Will keep for up to 2 months.
