TGIF! with idea for homemade liquor

This is my go-to recipe idea for Christmas gifts.

I make two or three batches of it every year and bottle it in a cleaned-up green Perrier bottle and tie a big red ribbon on it to look festive.


It’s always so good I make sure we give ourselves a gift of it as well! We pour it over ice or put it in our coffee. Delicious!

I’ve also had homemade cherry bounce, courtesy of some friends, and blackberry brandy, courtesy of my brother and his wife, and I don’t think you can go wrong with homemade liquor.

This picture below isn’t mine, but it’s also another good way to package it. I’ve bought bottles like these before at World Market. Including the recipe is a great idea, and it looks pretty!


Irish Cream


1 cup heavy cream

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 2/3 cups Irish whiskey

1 teaspoon instant coffee granules

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon almond extract


1. In a blender, combine heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, Irish whiskey, instant coffee, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract and almond extract. Blend on high for 20 to 30 seconds. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. Shake well before serving.
