Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur...step by step.


Irish Cream Liqueur anybody?? Usually to celebrate Easter, I prepare wine in advance; but this Easter, I was bitten by-the-lazy-bug and made this super easy, instant homemade Irish Cream Liqueur.

It was back in the 1990s, a friend of mine shared this awesome ladies drink and since then I have made it  hundreds of time, for Christmas, for family get together, parties....I have used this liqueur in puddings, flavored it in ice-creams, cakes, icings..

Can you believe that to make this super-simple ladies drink,  you just have to pop every thing in a blender and just blend for a min....that's all.

I like to serve it over ice cubes, but some like to have it with crushed ice, personally I love it really chilled without ice cubes :).

The best thing about this super simple, super quick recipe is ....it tastes better than commercial ones and you save money too....isn't that cool.

Author: Nisa Homey.
Ingredients:
Whisky: 1 3/4 cup.
Condensed milk: 1 tin.
Cream: 2 packets (I used low fat amul cream, if you use full fat then that's the best)
Cocoa powder: 1 tsp.
Instant coffee powder: 1 tsp, (you can increase up to two tsp, according to your taste)
Vanilla or almond essence: 1 drop.

Method:
A peek into my old recipe book, where I have hurriedly jotted down the recipe  .....err sorry about the state it is in now.


Gather all the ingredients...this is very important as you cannot afford to run around for the stuffs...so get everything ready.


Into your blender, pour the condensed milk.


Add the cream (both packets)


And the instant coffee powder...though more of coffee flavor is really good.....it depends more or less on  your taste...


Add in the cocoa.


And lastly the best part whisky- if you can get Irish Whisky...then its perfect. Once you pour the whisky, you will notice that the mixture will slightly curdle or tend to curdle....do not panic, just blend for 1 minute... and hum a song :)


Sieve this onto a jar.....then pour into a clean bottle. Voila, your homemade Irish cream liqueur is ready....imagine the money you are saving making this at home....and that makes me sing a song ha.


Refrigerate....this will keep for 2 months if refrigerated (though for me it has never lasted more than a week)....serve over ice cubes or crushed ice....and enjoy the summer.

Enjoy!

  15. Hi Nisa.

    I am a huge fan of Irish Coffee. While surfing I came across your blog & immediately noted the recipe. It took me a while to convince myself to try it at home. My husband then boosted my morale & I finally did it. The recipe given by you is the simplest & the most amazing drink I have had. Mine was half over on the first day itself. Kudos to you & thank you for sharing it.
    God bless you!

    Best wishes

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style. Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The
