this is a recipe that we have used in our family for many years and prefer this to bailys any day. most my family lokes to just sip it straight but i prefer it in my coffee. it is so creamy and good, this post makes me want some now. :) the only difference in my recipe and yours is i use light cream instead of heavy. it is so thick with the light cream, i can only imagine it is REALLY thick with the heavy. i use 1 1/2 c. of whisky and i also have increased the vanilla to 1 1/2 tsp. after making many batches. using this amount of whisky works out perfectly if you are making many batches, if i remember correctly 1-750 ml. bottle of whisky will make 2 1/2 batches using that amount.

Not quite Bailey's but a whole lot closer than the replica I tried several years ago. GREAT texture; excellent taste. I followed the recipe exactly, using Bushmills Irish Whiskey. I am delighted you posted this and that I tried it for PAC Fall 2007.

Okay - I tried to make this lowfat and it turned out pretty well! I used nonfat sweetened condensed milk and (gasp) nonfat half-half. It was strong (I may cut to 1 1/2 cups irish whiskey next time) but I like it! And I think that regular Irish Cream is a little too rich so this was nice....My lowfat approach is not recommended for everyone if you want a richer flavor but it definitely works for me!
