On the first day of Christmas, Drink Matron gave to me: Make your own Irish cream!

Christmas lovelies! I’m back! What a better month to come back to you than December, when warm weather and holidays bring families and friends back together.

A great homemade gift to give to your loved ones is Irish cream. Yup, you don’t have to spend money on Baileys or Carolans, you can have your very own tasty coffee and hot chocolate additive.

Lucky for you guys, my family likes Irish cream and likes to keep a bit of homemade stuff around. Must come from being Wisconsin farm folk. Or booze hounds. Or Canadian (yeah, I’m a little Canadian. Like Barney Stinson. What. Up.)

1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs Hershey syrup
1 pint whipping cream or half&half
1 cup Irish whiskey or brandy (brandy comes from being from Wisconsin. It’s our thing in general.)
1/3 cup white rum

Mix ingredients together with a mixer or in a blender. Refrigerate.

My Aunt Greta says, “Can be kept for months, but I doubt it will last that long.” I concur. It’s delicious.
