This is simply the best Homemade Baileys Irish Cream! It is perfectly sweet, smooth and a slight whiskey kick. Whip up a batch and add a splash to your morning coffee or over ice to end a long day!

What is the holidays without cocktails?
It’s a close race between which menu I like to create more: food or cocktails. I mean, they are both essential to everyone being cheery during the holidays. There are must have appetizers, like I have had my eye on homemade Irish cream for quite some time but when it is 100 plus degrees here in the midwest during the summer months, the only cocktail I prefer is a margarita. So my impatient self has had to wait. Boo.
Well, my invisible friend, that time is upon us! As I plan on gracing my family this holiday season, I do not plan on showing up empty handed. They are going to be tickled pink (and probably tipsy…) once they pour themselves a glass of this!
This homemade Baileys is legit. It comes together in a jiffy. And only requires a few ingredients. Bonus. It is rich, creamy, smooth and potent. Double bonus. But the real pleasure comes from the fact that you can toot your own horn and be able to say, “Well why yes, I made my own Irish Cream Liquor.” I am not quite sure there is a more perfect night cap to a holiday shindig. Maybe these no bake bailey’s mousse cups?
Put your feet up, pour yourself a little jigger of homemade deliciousness and embrace the holidays. Cheers!
meal prep tips:
this Homemade Baileys is perfect to make a few days, even a week, before the holidays or event! Simply store in a sealed container in the fridge, and it will be ready when you are thirsty!
