How to Make Homemade Irish Cream

I used mylarge ninja blender and just dumped in all the ingredients.

Watch how long you blend, because if you’re not careful, you may end up with Irish whipped cream. Don’t ask me how I know.

What kind of liquordo you use to make Irish Cream?

I generally use whiskey, but you can use brandy or rum as well. All will taste great.

Can you make Irish Cream non-alcoholic?

Yes! You can use Rum syrup to achieve the taste without the alcohol.
