Tips for making Homemade Baileys Irish Cream

  • Mix the coffee granules with 2 tbs boiling hot water and stir until dissolved. Allow the coffee to cool before adding to the blender (this step is optional – but recommended for a smooth result).
  • Certain blenders (generally the powerful ones) can curdle the mixture slightly as they ‘whip’ the cream – but don’t worry! Start your blender on a medium speed and increase slowly. If you notice this happening, turn the speed back down and continue to blend until just combined. If your mixture does appear curdled, simply pour it through a sieve and then allow the drained liquid to settle. Scrape any excess off the top with a spoon.

    Do I use heavy cream or half and half? I have never seen or heard of pouring cream.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      As long as it’s not whipped cream and you can pour it, it will be fine.

  2. Libby Davies says:

    Hi, I dont have a blender! Will a Bamix do the same job?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hmm I would think so!!

  3. Ines says:

    Just wondering………..to keep longer, can I store this liquor in the freezer just like I do with my Limoncello?

    just finished making this, beautiful taste, to much will blow your head off, only mistake I made was the coffee, didn’t have any instant coffee so used granulated instead, took a bit to get it mixed in but still good, would definitely make it again and again.

      So glad you like it!
