Homemade Irish Cream

This Irish Cream puts the store bought version to shame. I wanted to drink the whole bottle in one evening. I did exhibit a semblance of self control and only had 2 of these. This thick and creamy concoction is lovely on its own, in frosting, over ice cream or in coffee! The recipe is from Saveur magazine.

Homemade Irish Cream


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tsp instant espresso granules
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups Irish whiskey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk (I used Eagle Brand Fat Free)


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until mixed. Do not over blend or it will become thick like whipped cream.
  2. Store in a glass bottle. I used a Container Store glass water bottle that holds 34 ounces and it was perfect.
  3. The Irish Cream will keep 2 weeks.
