The Best Part of Waking Up

Brewhouse server Monique inspired this entry. 
She will be driving to Arizona for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Thursday morning she will wake early and cook with her family as they sip coffee laced with a little Bailey’s Irish Cream..
 
“I have a recipe for homemade Bailey’s”.
 
“You do?”
 
So this is for Monique.  She said she will also be making the pumpkin dip.
 
Homemade Irish Cream
 
1 cup light cream
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 and 2/3 cups Irish whiskey
1 tsp instant coffee
2 tbsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup (even better with more)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
 
Combine all ingredients in a blender set on high for 30 seconds.  Bottle in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate.  The liqueur will keep for two months if kept cool.  Shake the bottle well before serving.  Makes four cups.
