Home-Made Irish Cream

This home-made Irish cream is super easy to make and it makes a nice gift too!

Originally, I used a recipe from Dinner with Julie, but have customized it over the years and numerous attempts.

To be honest, the best thing about this recipe is how creative you can get with it! Want to add cinnamon? Go ahead! Peppermint extract? Sure.

You can also throw in whatever alcohol you have around, like a nice spiced rum or a tequila if you did not have the whisky (or whiskey).

Tip 1: Add a ribbon or use a decorated jar.
Tip 2: Customize the ingredients to suit your own taste, or the tastes of your gift recipient.
