HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
A nice way to celebrate is to pour yourself a nice cup of coffee that is flavored with this rich homemade Irish Cream. It is delicious. So much better than the coffee creamers you get at the store.
This recipe has evaporated milk, milk, and whipping cream - great ingredients for a rich cup of coffee. In addition to the milks and cream, this recipe also includes some chocolate syrup, sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract and some coffee granules. Blend them together and then store in fridge until ready to use.
The recipe suggest using 1/3 cup of creamer to cup of coffee. I used this amount and it was perfect. This recipe yields about 3 cups.
