Recipe Of the Week: Homemade Irish Cream

December 3, 2008

‘Tis the season to drink delicious milkshakes that have whiskey in them… Making your own winter tipples is a long tradition in my family. Goes right back to my rum-running great great grandfather Peacock. My mom makes Kahlua every year, but I prefer the Irish Cream. This recipe is from a dude in Kenora named Godfrey. : )

Godfrey’s Irish Cream

  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (like Eagle Brand)
  • 1 cup Cream (Half and Half works well)
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups Dark Rum or Whiskey (Preferably 2!)
  • 2 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 eggs (This is for thickness – I usually leave it out because I think its weird, and it still tastes fabu.)
  1. Mix all ingredients in blender.
  2. Shake well before pouring.
  3. Store in Fridge up to 1 week (Longer with no egg)
  4. Do not vomit through nose.

And there you have it. Passed down through generations… The Godfrey family Irish Cream recipe. As the liquor ads say, enjoy responsibly this season!
