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!
