  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream

The Recipe How-To

“A delicious way to warm up on a chilly evening”

Now that we have discussed the ingredients, we can move on to the fun part: making the Irish cream! As with all recipes, it’s important to read through the steps beforehand to ensure you have everything you need.

Step 1: Blend Liquids First

In a blender, combine 1 ½ cups half-and-half, 1/2 cup Irish whiskey, 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, 1 teaspoon instant coffee dissolved in 2 tablespoons hot water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Step 2: Add in Eggs

Add in 4 eggs or an egg substitute and blend until smooth.

Step 3: Combine and Blend

With the blender running, slowly pour in 1 cup heavy whipping cream. Blend until thick and creamy for about 20 to 30 seconds.

Step 4: Add Kirkland Signature Irish Cream Liqueur

Pour mixture into a large glass container and whisk in 2 shots of Kirkland Signature Irish Cream Liqueur or Baileys Irish Cream if preferred.

Step5: Serve Over Ice or Use as Ingredient

Refrigerate for at least an hour before using. This recipe yields around six cups of homemade Irish cream liqueur. You can use it as a cocktail mixer, serve it over ice, or include it as an ingredient in desserts such as Irish cream cupcakes, Irish cream cheesecake, or even use it for cooking (Annie Avenue Creme Brulee).

I hope you enjoy this recipe, whether you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or just want to indulge in something decadent. Sláinte!

Substitutions and Variations

“Indulge in a rich and velvety concoction”

Greetings dear reader,

I know that sometimes making a recipe can be difficult when you don’t have all the ingredients on hand. Fear not, for I have gathered some substitutions and variations you can try for Annie’s Irish Cream Recipe.

First, let’s talk about how we can make this a vegan-friendly recipe. For eggs, you can substitute with egg substitute or flax eggs (1 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water for each egg). Instead of half-and-half, you can use coconut milk or almond milk. For the sweetened condensed milk, you can use condensed coconut milk or maple syrup.

If you don’t have whiskey on hand or simply don’t want to use it, you can replace it with rum or brandy. You can also try using coffee liqueur instead of the Irish cream liqueur.

For a chocolate twist, you can add 2 tbsp chocolate syrup or cocoa powder to the mixture. It will give your Irish cream a rich chocolate flavor.

If you’re feeling creative and want to try something new, why not mix things up by making an Irish coffee cocktail? Just add 2 oz of your Irish cream to a cup of freshly brewed coffee and top it off with whipped cream. It’s perfect for those cold winter nights.

Remember that these substitutions and variations may change the original flavor of the recipe, so experiment and find what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to try new things!

Yours truly,


Serving and Pairing

“Cheers to homemade cocktails”

When it comes to serving Annie’s Irish Cream Recipe, there are a wide variety of options to choose from. One great way to enjoy this smooth and creamy liqueur is by serving it chilled over ice. For a fancier presentation, you can even serve it in stemmed glasses or pour it over a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent dessert.

As for pairing, Annie’s Irish Cream Recipe goes well with many desserts, such as chocolate cake or creme brulee. It also pairs beautifully with coffee, making it the perfect addition to your morning cup of joe or a cozy Irish coffee on a chilly evening.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can also try using this homemade Irish cream in your cocktails. Simply mix it with some iced coffee, espresso or dark chocolate liqueur for an extra kick of flavor.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Take your coffee game to the next level”

My dear readers, one of the best things about Annie’s Irish Cream recipe is that it can be made ahead of time to save you precious moments during those ever-so-busy days. To prepare in advance, simply follow all of the recipe steps and store the mixture in a tightly closed container, preferably glass, in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. It will taste just as delightful and creamy as if it were freshly made.

When you’re ready to serve your loved ones or guests, take the mixture out of the refrigerator and give it a good shake. You can always add a splash of coffee or Irish whiskey for extra flavor. Serving cold is always preferred, although some people may prefer the drink slightly warm. In this case, I suggest reheating over low heat on the stovetop or using a microwave-safe container and an interval setting.

If you have leftover Irish cream mixture, please note that it can also be used to elevate other desserts such as ice cream, cakes or cupcakes. It adds a hint of luxurious flavor when drizzled over vanilla bean ice cream or blended into chocolate cupcakes.

This remarkable recipe can be adapted to suit various dietary requirements as well. For vegans, replace eggs with egg substitutes like plant-based eggs and swap regular milk with coconut or almond milk. I also recommend keeping an extra jar of Irish cream in stock during festive periods and special occasions.

Thank you for taking the time to read about how to make ahead Annie’s Irish Cream recipe, how to store it like a true chef and ways to elevate your desserts with it. With this impressive recipe in hand, you are guaranteed an extraordinary experience surpassed by none but yourself!

Tips for Perfect Results

“A delightful combination of whiskey and cream”

For a perfect Annie’s Irish Cream Recipe, here are some tips to follow:

1. Use room temperature ingredients – Keep all the ingredients at room temperature before mixing them together. This ensures that ingredients mix evenly and results in a creamy texture.

2. Whip cream separately – Prior to mixing it in with other ingredients whip the heavy whipping cream separately until it is fluffy and light.

3. Add Irish whiskey slowly – While you add whiskey to the mixture, be careful not to add too much of it at once. Slowly pour it little-by-little so that the mixture doesn’t curdle.

4. Chill properly – After mixing all the ingredients, let the mixture chill in the fridge for at least 2 to 3 hours before serving. This step helps all the flavors combine properly.

5. Use quality ingredients – Try using high-quality Irish whiskey and vanilla extract for this recipe as they make a difference.

6. Serve with ice cream or cocktail – For dessert options try serving over ice cream or adding Annie’s Irish Cream Recipe to your favorite cocktail for a delicious twist.
