I know I’m a little behind with this recipe, as Christmas has been over for over a week. But this yummy homemade Baileys is not only delicious during Christmas time. So, here it goes.. ;)

The homemade Baileys turned out so delicious, that after making the first batch with my mom, I also made another attempt at Baileys with my aunt, using a different, spiced recipe (adapted from here). Yum!

  • Prep: 10 mins

I know I’m a little behind with this recipe, as Christmas has been over for over a week. But this yummy homemade Baileys is not only …

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix the sugar, cocoa and chai powder with the hot espresso.
  2. Add the egg yolks and mix until the sugar dissolves.3. Whip the cream into semi-solid consistency and mix with the egg-sugar-cocoa-espresso mixture.
  3. Add the alcohol.
  4. Fill in a bottle and keep cold until ready to serve.

Notes

  • the Baileys keeps for about 2 weeks (kept cold).
  • we used 90 vol%/ 180 proof alcohol (I believe in the US it is sold as Everclear). If you don’t have access to such high proof alcohol, I think you are safe with Whiskey or Rum as a substitute.
  • shake well before serving.
  • boil out a glass bottle to sterilize and let cool before filling it.
  • with this recipe you get about 6 cups (48 fl. oz.) of Baileys.

    Hi,
    I just made your Bailey’s a couple of gifts. It’s great but I am worried because of the strong coffee taste. .…more than I am use to. I noticed other recipes have 2 tsps not tbsps of instant coffee. Just checking to see if it was an error. I was planning to add coffee ice cubes but I will just serve with regular ice.…..one less step!
