Aimee Fortney's Southern Cream Liqueur

Posted: Updated:

Many folks enjoy a nice "Irish Whiskey" for St. Patrick's Day, but you can whip up your own "Irish Cream" and make it a "Southern Cream" by using the Southern bourbon in your pantry. This keeps for weeks in your refrigerator and is so easy to make at home!

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso or strong coffee, cooled
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Basil Hayden's Bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

In a blender, blend all ingredients together, saving the almond and vanilla extracts for the next "blend." If it seems too thick, add a bit more coffee or heavy cream. 

Add almond extract and vanilla last, then blend once more. 

Pour into a mason jar or a bottle with a seal and refrigerate. 

Shake before serving each, and enjoy in your coffee or over ice cream, or just straight over ice!
