Day 8 - Irish Cream
Oh Irish Cream. Like eggnog, it's one of the most decadent parts of the holiday season. This recipe has been passed down for generations through my Mom's family and includes eggs and heavy cream, although our version has been lightened by using lactose-free cereal cream in place of the full monty whipping cream.
I tried to find the history of Irish Cream, but it turns out it's a fairly new invention, coming from the 1970s! BUT, it was probably inspired by more traditional coffee cocktails topped with whipped cream which became popular in Vienna in the mid-1800s.
This is a drink that my mom usually whips up one or two times a season. It is great in coffee, on its own, over ice, or over ice cream. Depending on the amount of whisky you add the ABV will come out to around 20%. Cheers!
