The holidays are a perfect time to be a little self-indulgent and some of my fondest winter memories involve lazy mornings spent in bed, sipping a dark, delicious coffee laced with boozy Irish cream. Or having friends over to celebrate the holidays with a chilled glass of Bailey’s over ice.
Luckily I have a delicious alternative. This recipe is pure, natural and preservative free. Because of this, it won’t last forever, so be sure to share this goodness with your favourite friends and family.
Holiday Bourbon Cream Liqueur
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/4 cups bourbon
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
- 2 T raw cacao
- 2 T maple syrup
- 1 T vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients together. Pour in mason jars and store in refrigerator. Shake before serving.
Ps. Instead of getting into a stressed out shopping mall frenzy, why not forgo the big gifts and spend time having a meal, drink or hot chocolate with people you care about over the holidays instead. But, if you absolutely feel you have to give something tangible, a little mason jar of bourbon cream makes a perfect offering; especially when it’s made with love. Top with a bow and this little mason jar becomes a delicious hostess gift, stocking stuffer or ‘anytime’ gift.
Merry Christmas everyone xo
