Bailey’s Irish Cream anyone? So delicious. Irish Cream Liqueur is a summer drink staple, whether it’s in your coffee at the cottage, topped with marshmallows roasted around the campfire, or on ice on a hot afternoon. So we created this supersimple Creamy Irish Cream Liqueur that you can easily make at home!
Start by measuring out all of your ingredients and add them to a large bowl if using an immersion blender or directly into the blender if that’s what you’re using. You might be tempted to skip the almond extract if you don’t have any on hand, but please don’t! This is one of the ingredients that is critical to the overall flavor to make it a true copycat recipe.
Once you’ve got everything in, it’s time to blend baby blend. Blend on High for about a minute or until all of the lumps are gone. This is especially important because the cocoa likes to clump!
Once it’s thoroughly mixed and airy, transfer it to an airtight container or mason jar (which is what we suggest for longer term storage) and transfer it to the fridge for storage. Alternatively, pour it directly to a glass tumbler over ice and drink up! Cheers!

Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
