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!
~Nimz~ this Baileys is so good. I really enjoyed it...I can't believe how quick and easy it was to make. I'm already enjoying a glass of it...yummy. I believe that I much prefer this to the original. It's thick and creamy, rich and wonderful. I used 1 2/3 cups of a good quality Irish whiskey and do not find it overpowering at all. Thanks for sharing.
This is very nice! It has the right consistency and creamyness. The flavor is good although I prefer Bailey's. I have to admit I used what I had on hand which was American Bourbon Whiskey. I'm sure some people will be horrified by that but what do I know? I only used a cup of it and it is a bit overpowering but still tastes good. I'm sure if I had used a good quality Irish Whisky it would have been even better, so I'm giving it 5 stars. Thanks for the easy and useful recipe!
