Homemade Irish Cream

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

With the weather changing, it makes me think of hot cocoa, hot coffee, bonfires and scarves.    It also reminds me of my dad’s Irish cream that he would make around this time.   He would send it home with us in glass milk jugs to add to our coffee or cocoa!

It is super simple to make all on your own, and it keeps in the fridge for a while (not that it will last that long!!!!)

**Must only be consumed if over 21 years of age, please drink responsibly**
