Let’s be clear, I have NOT been writing drunk, though it may not be a bad idea. It is practically the weekend after all.
If I do drink while writing, it’ll be this. A friend shared this on Facebook, and I’ve since seen it half a dozen more places. This one I tried came from cupcakeproject.com. I don’t know what it has to do with cupcakes, but whatever. Maybe it’s best to bake drunk too.
Homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream
- 1 cup light cream (I used table cream, which made it a bit richer)
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1 2/3 cup Irish whiskey (I’m Canadian, so I used Alberta Premium, but Jameson’s would do too)
- 1 tsp instant coffee
- 2 tbsp chocolate syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
All you do it toss or pour these items together into a blender and set on high for 30 secs, pour it into an airtight container, and stash it in the fridge. Don’t forget to give it a shake before reopening (hence the airtight container).
It’ll keep for up to 2 months (watch the date on the cream), but it won’t last that long because you’ll drink it.
This ought to last the weekend…
