Make Your Own Irish Cream

Marcia Simmons, author of DIY Cocktails and a friend of mine, made her own Irish cream and found that it was better tasting than the major brands like Bailey’s, and cheaper too. As she put it:

DIY Irish cream tastes richer and fresher than the store-bought kind (though it doesn’t last as long or look quite as uniform.) It’s like the difference between a Chips Ahoy cookie and a freshly baked homemade chocolate chip cookie. Your own batch also will cost you at least 5 dollars less than the packaged stuff.

Sounds awesome. And just in time for the holidays, too.
