It's Never Too Early... {cocktail recipe}

To start planning for St. Patricks Day!  Valentines Day?  Blah, blah, blah....March 17th is our go~to winter holiday.  Since it falls on a Saturday this year, chances are you may have a party, parade or event to attend.
 Why not whip up a batch of homemade Irish cream aka Baileys.
 or...a glass of creamy Irish cream by the fire?
Here is my version.  Most of the ingredients are already in your home.

Homemade Irish Cream

1 ½ c. Jamesons Irish Whiskey (more or less if you want. Sometimes less is more)
1 can of Eagle sweetened condensed milk
1 cup lite cream
4 beaten eggs
2 tbsp. chocolate syrup
2 tbsp. instant coffee
1 tsp. vanilla extract 

Mix in the blender for 3 minutes.  Let it sit overnight or for a couple of days; it gets better as it ages.  Don't let the raw eggs deter you, the alcohol will do its thing.  This will be good for one month.
