For me, Christmas isn't Christmas without Baileys. I have memories going back as long as I can remember of my mum and nan pouring themselves glasses from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day without abandon. Me? I'll drink it all year round but that, my friends, is not the point. The point is that a bottle of Baileys will usually set you back between £15 and £20 and if you're buying other alcohol, it's an expense you can avoid. I can vouch for this recipe as my friend Emma and I made it last year. We made it a bit too thick but did it taste of Baileys and get us happy? Yes it did.
1. Blend all ingredients together until you're satisfied with the consistency.
2. Do the taste test and at this point add more whiskey/coffee/syrup/vanilla or almond extract until it suits you.
3. Transfer to any clean bottle with a tightly closing cap you like.
4. Refrigerate to store and shake well before use.
I use this in coffee, cakes and even to drink by itself as it is honestly that good. Let me know if you try it and how it goes.
