Homemade Irish Crème Liqueur

This little number beats the pants off Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur, though is stronger.

250ml Irish / Scotch whisky
1 tin condensed milk, full cream, sweetened
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup, or Belgian chocolate spread
1 tablespoon Bourbon vanilla syrup.

Place all the ingredients into a blender and blitz until well mixed.

Pour into a bottle, chill then serve straight or on the rocks.

Is the Bourbon vanilla syrup a store bought item or something you made?

If you made it...will you share it

I apologise for the late reply.

The Bourbon vanilla syrup is indeed a store-bought item. Offhand, I can't remember its brand name but will come back to you on it. It wasn't cheap: about £4 GBP.

The Irish Cream Liqueur packs a punch at about 25-27% alcohol, as against Bailey's miserable 17%. My recipe is miles cheaper, too. Just be a bit careful and not drink more than a couple of doubles. Or next day you will have a mother and a father of a headache.

This is the vanilla extract that I use:

Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract - 2 oz.

I believe you can make your own vanilla extract, but Madagascan vanilla pods are prohibitively expensive, and for a home brew, you may need at least 5.
