    Irish Cream Liqueur

    This makes a great gift for those who love creamy coffee liqueurs, and this version is not as cloyingly sweet as some bought brands. Use small bottles that come with corks or spring clips with rubber stoppers. Alternatively, fill small, empty spirit bottles. Store the liqueur in the fridge and use within two weeks, ideally poured over plenty of crushed ice.
