Homemade Bailey's Irish Cream

Homemade Baileys
I am so excited about this recipe. I have never made anything like this before and I was so thrilled when my homemade version actually tasted like the store bought stuff. The original recipe calls for Irish whiskey but all I had was Canadian (Crown Royal). I don't know much about whiskey so I can't tell you if using Irish whiskey would have made this recipe taste more authentic. What I can tell you is that this stuff was beyond awesome. It was sweet with just enough alcohol. I don't like whiskey on its own, but I loved it in this recipe.

    A few years ago I saved up a bunch of old Jones Soda bottles, ran them through the dishwasher a few times, made funny labels, then filled them with this recipe and gave them as gifts. People really liked it.
