If you are high on life and style with a bit of ecstasy in your heels, Baileys Irish Cream is the answer to your needs. It is a combination of Irish Whiskey and Cream-based liquor. It was first made as an instant success by R. A. Bailey and Co. of Dublin, Ireland. It is one of the preferences for heavy drinkers as it has an alcohol content of seventeen per cent.
The drink is an absolute must because it has the Cream and Whiskey homogenized perfectly to form an emulsion, with the help of refined vegetable oil an emulsifier. The emulsification process makes it so that the Whiskey and Cream don’t separate. The most exclusive part about this drink is that it contains all of the people’s favourite ingredients, namely, Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel, and Sugar.
The Whiskey alone can preserve the quality of the drink. It is easy to make and cheaper than buying a bottle from a store, and what’s more, it tastes incredible. All one requires to be an expert in this is a blender and a few other ingredients readily available on hand. You can enjoy the drink in multiple ways, on the rocks, a way to make your Coffee splashy, or use it for baked goods like Cakes, Muffins, Donuts, Cupcakes, Brownies, or Pies. It is an excellent gift to be given on special occasions and holidays.
Ingredients for the process
The process is a relatively easy one where one or more of the ingredients can be switched based on the taste that the maker enjoys. Following are the ingredients:
· Whiskey – Get a full bottle and use it according to the taste.
Any type of Whiskey can be used, but it is suggested to use an Irish brand. One can also use Brandy or Bourbon for the same. The variation in the liquor would only make the taste even more enjoyable.
· One cup Heavy Cream
Now Cream is very important for the drink because the base has to be based on a Creamy texture. So, either use Heavy Cream or use half & half (Half a cup whole milk mixed with half a cup of heavy whipping cream). This way, the Creamy texture won’t be lost. Avoid using only Milk because that would make the drink not Creamy enough.
· One Can Condensed Sweetened Milk
· Three tablespoons of Chocolate Syrup
One can use their creativity, like using half a teaspoon of cocoa powder instead and whipping it with a tablespoon of Cream to make it smooth. Using Chocolate and Milk to make some is acceptable, but we use a regular store-bought Chocolate syrup in the recipe.
· One teaspoon of Pure Vanilla extract
This is added to the drink to add tastier. One can add any extract they like, maybe almond, peppermint, or orange, or what about Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spices?
· One tablespoon of Instant Coffee granules
The Coffee is used to kick up the already rich flavour blended into the drink. You can also use grounded Coffee or instant expresso to push the Coffee flavour.
Step by Step Recipe
The steps we will be using to make the dish are extremely easy to understand. It barely takes a minute to complete the drink under the blender. It is essential to make sure you use a lower speed setting on the blender if it’s a high-powered one. Otherwise, the fusion won’t happen. If it is a standard blender, one must ensure that the solutions don’t appear curdled. It is easy to sieve the liquid and scrape any excess off the top with a spoon if that occurs. It just requires you to take a big container and add the following items in order:
1. Half and Half Cream or Heavy Cream
2. Condensed Sweetened Milk
3. Instant Coffee or what you are using as a replacement.
4. Chocolate Syrup or what you are using as a replacement.
5. Vanilla Mix
Mix all these at the stated speed for about 30 seconds and add the Irish Whisky. Blend the solution some more, and it’s done, Baileys Irish Cream.
The ratios of the ingredients can be tweaked according to the taste you prefer. Also, one should remember to shake the solutions well before using them.
Add more or less Chocolate as you want, make it stronger by adding more Whiskey, or just use salted caramel or raspberry liquid if you don’t want to use Coffee. Store the solution in a refrigerator for about two months by dividing it into different bottles or having one large bottle.
Culinary uses of Baileys Irish Cream
· It provides the most satisfactory drinking experience with its exceptional Creamy taste and substantial Whiskey input, providing the finest spirits and natural flavours.
· It can be used as a layer in different Chocolate cakes and, when garnished with dark Chocolate, gives an intense taste.
· It is advantageous as a health benefit as back in the old days, and it would be used to handle an upset stomach by using this solution.
How to Store Baileys Irish Cream?
It is the only Cream liqueur that makes sure of a natural product that delivers that unique, smooth taste for about 24 months from the day it was created. The alcohol in the solution directly acts as a preservative for the drink. It is essential to store the beverage away from direct sunlight at any temperature. It is not vital to refrigerate your bottle, but it is recommended. Why? Because it tastes even better when it’s chilled. If the temperature fluctuates a lot, the solution will go clumpy. That would reduce the drink’s taste, so after completing the solution, it is essential to always keep it roughly at the same temperature.
The drink is an excellent combination and option for anyone who loves Whiskey.
