|Make the most perfect Irish Coffee this Christmas
How impressive to be able to offer a homemade Baileys, or super-special Irish Coffee to family and friends this year?
Why not make some to give as a gift to someone special this festive season?
So, without further ado, here's the recipe...
Mrs Bishop's Homemade Irish Cream
300ml single cream
350ml Irish Whiskey (I used Bushmills)
1 tin condensed milk (397g)
5 tbsp chocolate sauce (I used Sweet Freedom 'choc shot')
1 tbsp good vanilla extract (I used my homemade extract)
2 tsp instant espresso powder (I used Carte Noir Espresso)
1 tsp almond essence
Makes 1 litre
*Store in the fridge in sterilised bottles for up to 2 months, shake well before you pour*
1) Firstly, you need to sterilise your bottles - do this by rinsing in hot, soapy water, then popping through my dishwasher, before placing on a baking tray in a hot oven for 10 minutes. Let the bottles cool before you decant your finished Irish Cream into them.
2) To make the Irish cream pour all of the ingredients into a blender, food processor or smoothie maker (a Nutri-Bullet or stick blender would do the trick too!) and blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Taste and add extra chocolate/coffee/vanilla/almond essence depending in your personal preference.
3) Pour into your sterilised bottles, label and place in the fridge to chill.
4) Shake well before you serve in a glass over ice, or add a splash to your favourite coffee for the perfect festive treat!
