Make your Own Baileys Cream

Print Friendly

After a 9 hour journey from the Hebrides to our house, just before last Christmas, my tired and eager for relaxation, sister-in-law came into the house, and wearily said what she really, really fancied was a Bailey’s Irish Cream. Whoops. We had everything else, we had the advocaat in memory of my late mother-in-law, we had whisky in homage to my late dad, we had coconut rum and amaretto, both are my seasonal tipple and we had rum which is Paul’s. But alas no Bailey’s.

In true Home Farmer style there was only thing for it. Have a bit of fun, a dabble and experiment making our own.

Leading up to Christmas most supermarkets sell the most delicious flavoured creams destined for mince pies. Mix the contents of the salted caramel flavoured cream (cream mixed with caramel liqueur), with some spiced rum, add a dash of vanilla sugar, stir well to make sure the sugar has dissolved and the cream and rum is mix together and bam.

We all pronounced it a not-bad-at-all take on Bailey’s.

Cheers!
