Craft Advent: Day 21: Knock-Off Baileys - Two Ways

Hooray! It's Alex, The Interior DIYer on Craft Advent today! I'm so excited to have her here as her blog is one of my favourites ever. Alex has the most amazing eye for interior design and is a craft genius. Her photography is absolutely top-notch too and you will be sure to plenty of inspiration over at her place. We've covered a lot of Christmassy making and baking so far during this Craft Advent but today, Alex is making sure we've got a delicious tipple to enjoy over the festive season too. (I told you she was a genius!)

First of all, thank you so much Sadhbh for asking me to take part in your #CraftAdvent2015. There have been soooo many incredible and beautiful crafts featured! I don't know about you, but at this time in December I'm beginning to run out of steam. With that in mind, I thought what better project to share than something that takes just 5 minutes to make and also contains booze. It's my nannie's knock-off Baileys recipe two ways; regular and vegan! For me, I find the vegan option an incredible substitute for Baileys, so this Christmas season hopefully I won't feel too left out of all the festivities. Both options are perfect to add to an Irish coffee or to serve by themselves over ice, ice, baby ...
Vegan Baileys (non-vegan recipe included below if you'd prefer)
- 2 cups of almond milk
- 3/4 cup of chocolate syrup
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
- 2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of soya cream
- 1 cup of Tia Maria
- 1 cup of whiskey

Add all the ingredients to a large jug and whisk until well mixed. Taste and add a bit more of any ingredient to suit your palette. Store in a decanter or jug and keep in the fridge. Use within a week, but I highly doubt it'll even last that long. 
Knock-off Baileys
- 3 eggs
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tsp of chocolate syrup
- 1 cup of fresh cream
- 1 cup of Tia Maria
- 1 cup of whiskey

Add all the ingredients to a large jug and blend with a hand blender until well mixed. Make sure to add the whiskey last as if you add it before the Tia Maria, it may cause the cream to curdle. Ain't nobody wants that. Store in a decanter or jug and keep in the fridge. Use within a week, but I highly doubt it'll even last that long.
