Learn how to make homemade Baileys Irish Cream with this quick and simple recipe. 

  • 235 grams (1 cup) heavy cream or half & half
  • 395 grams (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 400 ml (1⅔ cup) Irish whiskey I used Jameson
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  1. Place all the ingredients in the canister of a blender and blend until smooth, for about 30 seconds.

  2. Transfer the Baileys Irish cream to a glass bottle, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
  3. Shake well before use.
  4. Enjoy!

High speed blenders can curdle the mixture. Start your blender on a medium speed and increase slowly. If the mixture starts to curdle, turn the speed back down and blend until just combined.

Another solution is to strain the liquid through a sieve, then scrape any excess off the top with a spoon.
