I first had homemade Baileys almost a year ago at a girlfriends house. My friends used an old recipe they'd had for years. The recipe contained vodka, whiskey, condensed milk, coffee grinds & chocolate syrup. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. I knew there had to be a better alternative with healthier ingredients. I've searched many recipes and to my awe, most people are content with the condensed milk/ ghetto chocolate syrup version. I also found some recipes that included raw eggs. It doesn't make sense to make this version, because it will have a very short shelf life. If stored properly, this recipe will keep up to a month in the refrigerator.
I finally found a recipe
that uses fresh ingredients and tastes amazing! I tweaked it a little and it tastes just like the real thing. You won't be able to tell the difference between this version & store bought.
Bootleg Bailey's is great for gift giving. It takes less than 30 minutes to whip up once the cold brew coffee concentrate is made.
Please drink responsibly.
