I Learned How To Make Homemade Irish Cream

Hello and happy St. Patrick's Day!  I have been trying to eat (mostly) healthy things lately, but I cannot let a chance to make homemade Irish Cream pass!  Turns out that it only takes six ingredients to make this concoction for yourself at home.  I highly recommend using Tillamore DEW Irish Whiskey. It has a mellow flavor, which is absolutely delicious.  I halved the recipe shown here, but added additional chocolate syrup to taste.  I had a bottle of Baileys on hand, and compared the two until I had a slightly less-cloying version.  In this homemade form, you can really taste both the chocolate and the coffee.

So now you have your homemade Irish Cream and you are wondering what to do with it.  Well, make an Irish Car Bomb if you are so inclined. You will also need Guinness and Jameson Irish Whiskey for this.  Bonus: they are so much fun to make.

I hope you have a fun St. Patrick's Day, however you are celebrating. If you have any special food/drinks you like to make, I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
