I don't even know where to begin but this recipe is simply amazing! THANK YOU for sharing this with us! I have tried others and they don't even come close to this. However, I can say that I omitted the Almond Extract. Skip the almond and this recipe is spot on. Just wonderful!!!

I made this according to the recipe and the cream got curdled and I had to strain it. Therefore, the thickness of the liquor was not there. But the taste was fabulous and we all enjoyed it. Where did I go wrong to have the cream curdled.I put everything in to the liquidizer for 30 seconds.
Doug December 31, 2010 COMMENT: Cut out the almond as it over powered all other flavors, also not enough whiskey....use 2 cups or close to that to get the "BITE" of Bailey's
Rocstud December 29, 2010 REVIEW:
One must remember everybody taste is not the same so therefore if you try it and you dont like it dont be critical its only a recipe. For me its exelent for gifts. Especially for special friends.
memphisjoet December 22, 2010 REVIEW:
Ditch the almond and use fat free half and half and fat free sweetened condensed milk. Compared it to Bailey's and it's virtually the same. Just as good if you cut the Jameson's to 1-1/3 cup.
Guest Foodie December 17, 2010 COMMENT: Sorry, i didn't like it at all. Followed directions to the T except used heavy cream. I do love corolans and baileys. I used Telledew irish whiskey. The almomd was to strong and maybe the instant coffee as well. I think I will stick to buying my irish cream.
Guest Foodie December 10, 2009 REVIEW:
This receipe is good and simple. Just one comment use real Irish whiskey like Jamison's. I know it's expensive, but that is what gives it such a great taste. No substitutes. I've made this and given it as gifts just wonderful.
TMercredi December 7, 2009 COMMENT: I too used heavy cream and cut the almond and chocolate amounts by half. I used a little less whiskey as well and it's great - a big hit with family and friends!
Guest Foodie December 5, 2009 REVIEW:
Johnny Walker is Scotch Whisky, not Irish Whiskey. You could use Tullamore Dew if you want to remain "Irish" or even Bushmills or perhaps poorer quality Paddy . . . but why waste good whiskey in a mix? The suggestion of Southern Comfort (a sweetened whiskey) is good as it is inexpensive.
Jim in ABQ June 21, 2009 REVIEW:
Tried recipe as posted, found it a bit too heavy with almond & chocolate. Also a bit thinner than our taste. We tried again substituting heavy cream (instead of light) and cutting chocolate & almond by half. It was excellent.
A side note on whiskey's. Irish Whiskey is a whiskey distilled in Ireland. The two most popular that are available in the US are Bushmills and Jamesons. Either will make this a true "Irish" cream.
While I love Segrams VO, Segrams whiskeys have a distinct flavor that carries through any drink recipe - this is NOT an irish flavor.

This is a GREAT recipe! Off the shelf, I prefer Carolans Irish Cream over Bailey's, but this recipe is even better than Carolans, and much more "budget friendly".
I doubled the recipe, used 1/2 & 1/2, a full bottle of Bushmills (750 mil) and a little extra chocolate syrup. It turned out SO good!
In a nice decanter, this will make really nice and affordable Christmas gifts for my neighbors.
FloridaJo August 31, 2008 REVIEW:
Too much Almond like other reviewer said. Not creamy enough, I would use heavy cream next time. I used Seagrams 7 and it just wasn't working out. Overall, too thin, too almondy, too chocolaty, need a different whiskey. No where near as good as Baileys.
I am Irish! January 19, 2008 COMMENT: You cant have Irish cream without Irish whisky preferabley Johnny Walker Red
Shelley69 January 12, 2008 REVIEW:
very good!!!! But insted of vanilla I used pure almond extract.Turned out excellent!!!
Guest Foodie November 12, 2007 COMMENT: When making irish cream,try using butterscotch schnopps instead of almond or vannilla.It's perfect.
DaggettBeaver November 14, 2006 REVIEW:
A little heavy on the almond and chocolate. I cut these in half, used heavy whipping cream, and increased the whisky (I used Seagrams 7) to 2 cups. Very nice and warming.
Aussie Jenny October 25, 2006 REVIEW:
I've been making a similar recipe for years. I add a pinch of cinnamon. My family and friends love it. We think it's better (and cheaper) than the real thing. It's delicious served over ice cubes at the end of a meal on a hot day.
Irish Colleen March 31, 2006 REVIEW:
I made this for the neighbors for St. Patrick's Day 2006. It is just as wonderful as the 5 Stars indicated. I'm now the most beloved person in the neighborhood!
Sandra22 December 23, 2005 REVIEW:
Had to try this recipe since it was the only one using Southern Comfort and I couldn't imagine how it would taste. I can hardly tell the difference between this recipe and the ones using Irish Whiskey. This may be a little smoother. Big difference is whether the recipe uses eggs or not -eggs make it thicker and better, I think.
