Author Notes: Luxuriously smooth and silky, this no-egg (sans les oeufs) homemade Irish Cream is excellent in fresh brewed coffee, on the rocks or add a splash of Vodka!

I like showing up to the party with both Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Irish Cream versions so this recipe entry includes both; makes a great hostess gift.

Simply recycle your old liquor bottles, wash, dry thoroughly, strip the labels, fill them up with this creamy liqueur, add a festive bow and Voila...Cheers!

It's very tasty, and really you can use any Irish Whiskey you want...I like the one I posted. One year I brought the no-alcohol version to my department work party (couldn't bring the other), anyway, word got around we had Irish Cream, and I'm telling you people from other departments were showing up with coffee mugs, lining asking for some, they loved it, and funny...I am not sure half of them knew it was the "straight" version! :)
