Let me back up a bit. First – sorry I’ve been missing in action. This feels a bit like a confessional, “Sorry Father, but it has been 35 days since my last Post,….” I’ve been holed up doing ‘computer work’. I take photos of anything interesting that I’ve been doing and save them in little folders on my desktop. At this point, I now have a folder for all of the folders of all of the posts labeled ‘To Do’. Really!? So, I now have a ‘To-Do-List’ for individual projects ! The House List, The Site List, The Kid List, The School Booster List, and the Blog List. (and there are more) Well, last weekend while working on something from a List, I hit a roadblock, in more ways than one… I ran out of Bailey’s. GASP! Yeah, I know – right. It was cold here that day, and I was all dressed up for starring at my Macbook. (means, sweats and bad-hair…you know the outfit so horrible that gets a stare even from the paint counter at Home Depot)

Weekend mornings, my coffee creamer of choice is Bailey’s… yes, Friday counts too. Being ‘out’ just isn’t an option. Wait, I have cream and whiskey, and chocolate,… isn’t that all I need?  That’s most of it. I scrounged around and found a good recipe (NOT on Pinterest!!) from some serious foodies and dove right in… snapping pics as I went of course … for the Blog List folder of folders…

Gather your goodies together, get a bowl and let’s go..

 

Step 1

Step 1

Get the coffee/espresso powder together and mix with a little of the creamer and make a paste. Basically, you have to make sure all the coffee is dissolved.

Now get everybody else into the bowl and give it a whisk until smooth. Actually, you could do this in a blender too – but that’s too much cleaning!

Add the Bourbon. Can you smell that? Mmmmmm !!!

Bottle it – You know you’ve got one of those swing top bottles somewhere (or that empty bottle of Baileys??) …label it too! This is NOT chocolate milk kids!

 

Ok, now I can continue my work !

No, wait,…it’s Southern cousin is called,…. ‘Fishin’ with Dynamite’ – you guessed it… a dark Yeungling style Blk/Tan and a shot of Bourbon Creme ! Try it – it’s a blast!

Ingredients
  1. 1 Cup Heavy Cream (I used half/half)
  2. 1 tsp Instant Coffee Powder (or espresso)
  3. 1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  4. 3/4 Cup Whiskey
  5. 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  6. 1 (14oz) can Sweetened Condensed Milk (I used the fat-free)
Instructions
  1. Make a paste out of the coffee and cocoa powders with a bit of the cream. Once dissolved, add in the rest and whisk until smooth.
  2. Bottle it and store in the fridge. Give it a shake before using.
Notes
  1. I'm always on a diet, which is why I used the Half & Half, and Fat-Free milk. Feel free to take yours over-the-top with Heavy Cream and full blown Bordens! Use an Irish Whiskey for your version of Irish Cream... or not. But absolutely use the good stuff.
