Homemade Irish Cream Will Make You Popular

Before scoffing, remember the true spirit behind drinking Irish Cream: it “tastes like melted ice cream that gets you drunk.” We can get with that. Grub Street introduces its DIY recipe for the stuff with a convincing defense of the oft dissed-on drink—it’s speedily prepared, lives long on the shelf and is a “guaranteed ticket to social gathering micro-fame.” If all that isn’t enough to get you mixing, imagine the possibility of pouring the whiskey-spiked, cream and chocolate syrup-based stuff over your bowl of Cheerios—an A.M. rouser GS calls a ‘Top O’ the Morning.”  Sounds about right.
