What’s Cooking, Good Looking?
This one is for the coffee lovers out there. This delightful beverage will make you the star of any holiday party or family gathering. Put it in cute little bottles and give it away, or hoard it for yourself on Christmas morning. This tends to be a little more Irish than the store-bought stuff. I personally like to throw it in some cold coffee with ice and shake it up, so if you see me with iced coffee in a December snow storm – you know why.
Tressa’s Irish Cream – heavy on the Irish
2 cups Irish Whiskey (Plentiful, over
flowing cups. Start with two and add
1 cup half and half
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed
2 tbsp. instant coffee granules (Again,
you can always add more to taste. I
usually like three tbsp., but not every
one loves coffee. If you’re not huge on
coffee, start with one tbsp.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. caramel or almond extract
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
Put it all in a blender and mix until combined. Put it in a mason jar in the fridge and dabble in it as your heart desires.
