Homemade "Bailey’s" Irish Cream

Did you know that you can make your own Bailey’s Irish Cream at home, and that all it takes is some ingredients you probably already have in your house, some Whiskey, and a blender?

Oh, and did you know that if you make your own, depending on the Whiskey you purchase, it costs about $8 per bottle, instead of $25?

And did you know that homemade Bailey’s is better tasting (in this blogger’s opinion) and has more of a kick (read: makes you feel good faster) than the stuff you buy at the store?

If I haven’t convinced you to try this yet, you must not be a Bailey’s fan.  But I will tell you, nothing says the holidays and cold weather and hot chocolate like Bailey’s Irish Cream.  You can put it into hot chocolate or coffee, or you can just drink it over ice.

And now I never have to buy it again.

Oh, and when you see the ingredients, you’ll understand why it’s so good.  So bad for you.  Yet so yummy.  Why are all the best things so terrible for you?  I think this would make a particularly lovely homemade Christmas gift.
