I love homemade gifts. Last Christmas, my cousin handed out little mason jars of homemade ‘Bailey’s’ style Irish Coffee Creamer. Not only was it delicious, but it was prettily decorated and had a tag with the recipe attached to it. She tells me the recipe came from somewhere online, but she doesn’t remember where exactly – so if you know who to properly credit, please let me know!
With the holidays coming upon us again soon, I wanted to share this recipe and her cute idea in case you wanted to try something similar – – – – or, if you’re like me, and you just want to make up a batch for yourself around the house 😉
Ok, I feel ridiculous actually typing this part out, but I kept on coming back to the thought that I ought to do it just in case I regret it later. Please note that there IS in fact alcohol in this coffee creamer. Please use good judgment when drinking your coffee with this creamer. Maybe you’re a ‘mug-of-creamer-with-a-dash-of-coffee’ type or perhaps you’re one that consumes coffee by the gallon and will go through your creamer in a speedy fashion. Please keep in mind that there’s some whiskey in your mug along with the coffee. Make two different batches of creamer if you need to. I did. One batch is regular Vanilla Creamer for my travel mug on the way to drive the kids to school and such. The other is the Irish Creamer for lazy Sunday mornings around the house. So…drink your coffee responsibly! Hah!
