With St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaching, I have everything Irish on the mind! My mom (Simply Sated) originally posted this homemade Irish creamer recipe on the site back in 2012 and it has been a favorite ever since. Our photos back then were less than ideal.

Homemade Irish Cream is the perfect coffee creamer, ice cream topping, or cocktail addition. It’s also delicious sipped on it’s own, in moderation of course. :) It always reminds me of my Grandma…I’m not sure why. She let me take a super small sip when I was young and I thought it was so gross. I don’t think it’s gross now, haha. It’s one of my favorite liqueurs!

This homemade Irish cream recipe has a heavy cream component, so you’ll want to be careful about blending it too forcefully. It’s really easy to get an unintentional whipped cream layer!! If you do get a cream layer rising to the top, you can sift the liquid through a cheesecloth of fine mesh strainer; and problem solved. No biggie.
