Instant Baileys.......

Post by Srebarna Birding » 20 Dec 2006, 21:23

A friend just gave me this recipe to try...I did today.

Not quite Baileys...but not bad at all ..I was impressed!!!
One third of what it would cost me to buy over here :wink:

Plus it's ready to drink straight away.... :lol: :lol:

''Happy Christmas to all!! ''
1 litre cheap whiskey (any will do)..
2 large tins of evaporated milk
1 small tin condensed milk
2 empty litre bottles

Simply split the ingredients between the two bottles
Shake well......

I must admit I used a little less can play around with it until you get the right consistancy....
Best to keep in fridge as it is better cold or over ice.....yummmm

Hi Srebarna,

There is an old British Royal Navy drink called Kye...or is it Kai? - can't remember! served hot to sailors in arctic conditions - BRRRRR!. This consisted of evaporated milk mixed with melted chocolate and rum.

Just to let you all know I opened the second bottle last night and I must admit it tastes even better! :D

The ingredients tasted 'as one'...before you could identify the different taste of the condensed and evaporated milk ...

A fine 'blend' now...won't last long though.... :D :D

This is my recipe:

300ml cheapest 'own brand' whisky

180ml Double cream

120ml Condensed milk

1 heaped teaspoon instant coffee granules (I use the 'ground coffee' type of instant)

1 teaspoon vanilla essence.

Put in 'used' whiskey bottle, shake well until coffee dissolves. Keep in fridge...drink at will.

Approximate cost per bottle is < £5. It's a little less sweet than baileys but about the same
alcohol per volume, which is to say 20% but that's a lot stronger than you think from
drinking it.
