This homemade Irish Cream coffee creamer is a decadent way to enjoy a good cup of coffee without spending a fortune. We don’t get to have family visit very often so when they do come and stay, we spend hours just sitting around chit-chatting.
There is nothing I enjoy more than a good cup of coffee while we socialize so our coffee pot has been getting quite a work out this week! With family and friends staying with us for Thanksgiving week, I decided to make up some homemade Irish Cream.
I love the flavor of sweet Irish cream in a cup of good, strong coffee. You can even add a shot of Irish whiskey to this creation to warm your insides a bit but it is just as tasty without the added alcohol.
So, take a moment to relax with family and be thankful for the many blessings we have been given. Including good coffee! We should always be thankful for coffee! If you don’t want to make your own Irish cream you can buy several brands of alcoholic Irish cream at the liquor store.
It can be drunk on the rocks, spiked with additional whiskey or added to mixed drinks. Cold nights are made warmer with Irish cream!
