Thirsty Thursday: DIY Baileys Irish Cream

Filed under: Thirsty Thursday — Tags: , , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 4:56 pm

DIY booze is all the rage, from home brewing to home infusing. While cucumbers marinate in a vodka bath over my fridge, my attentions turn to sweeter stuff. Specifically Baileys. In our vegan household, we’re always interested in ways to veganize foods we’ve abandoned, so below is a recipe for homemade Baileys (along with substitutions to create vegan Baileys if you so desire). Recipe via Cupcake Project.


  • 1 cup light or heavy creamĀ  (VEGANIZE: Soyatoo Whipping Cream or Silk Non Dairy Creamer)
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (VEGANIZE: Use melted vegan vanilla ice cream)
  • 1 2/3 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 2 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and set on high speed for 30 seconds.
  2. Bottle in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate. Shake before using.
  3. Will keep for up to 2 months.

Bottoms up :)

Next decision, what to do with our new boozy sugary creation. Go a favorite recipe with Baileys? Let me know.
