How to Make Irish Cream at Home

After Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day is my favorite holiday, and  I’ve been known to throw a celebration to mark the occasion (I once had 25 guests in my small New York City studio apartment).

The elements for a good St. Patrick’s Day party are easy. Throw on a little music (I recommend U2), ask everyone to wear green, and serve some great traditional food like Shepherd’s Pie(Opens in a new window) and Corned Beef and Cabbage(Opens in a new window). But the most essential part of a great St. Paddy’s Day celebration is, of course, the drinks.

While beer is usually the drink of choice for the holiday, I’ve recently started serving homemade Irish Cream(Opens in a new window) as an after dinner treat. With only seven ingredients, it’s super easy to make and really impresses your guests.

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup Irish Whiskey

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 ½ teaspoon instant coffee

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

OXO Irish Cream


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. No blender? You can also use a large bowl and whisk to combine. This is delicious served on the rocks, drizzled over ice cream or splashed into your coffee!
