Homemade Baileys anyone?

has anyone made homemade baileys before? I've been looking at recipes online and been interested in making it. Many of the recipes call for eggs and just blended with ingredients for 5 minutes. is that safe?

I've used this recipe before and it's very good. Scroll down to the second one listed, ie, no eggs. (I didn't have any Irish whiskey, so I used Jack Daniels plus a little bourbon, and heavy cream instead of light):
Homemade Bailey's Irish Cream
Homemade Baileys - Spirits - Chowhound

Thanks! I'll have to try it out. A friend of mine made it with the egg and it was amazing but I don't know if I wanna chance making it.

Should not an adequate proportion of alcohol solve the raw egg 'problem'? Our second line of defense is to use eggs from people we know and trust.

that's an interesting point. would alcohol, the kind ypu drink, be enough to kill off the nasties in raw eggs for those with weaker constitutions?

I think Jameson is deadlier than Black Bush.

The odds of getting sick from a raw egg are really, really low. And the whole problem wouldn't even exist if the chicken factories didn't feed chopped up chicken parts to the chickens they sell. Why the FDA allows it is beyond me.

I think they can get salmonella without eating chopped up chicken parts. But, there are ways to prevent salmonella. They don't have salmonella in the eggs or chickens in Sweden.
