I saw 'homemade Irish cream liquor' pop up on Punk Domestics facebook wall this morning and started clicking. It inspired this - whose ingredients I pulled from multiple recipes and then made it my own. Éirinn go Brách!
Pork loin spiced ham with juniper, black pepper, maple syrup and smokey scotch whisky. My smoker is out in the snowy yard, so the scotch whisky adds a little smoke without me dawning my snow boots. Time to embrace Winter!
It’s very easy to make (start to finish, the preparation is less than 30 minutes); can be whipped up with easy-to-come-by ingredients; and contains none of the artificial flavorings, coloring agents or preservatives used in commercial Irish creams.
I was curious to find out if Homemade Irish Cream would taste as good as Bailey's. I found the flavor to be just as good and smooth, but it was much higher in alcohol content than your average bottle from the grocery store.
