*  Feeling tense?  Baileys is a tense remover.  It is a stress repellent [ and it definitely smells better than mosquito repellent ]


*  Feel the need to swear take a deep breath ? Sip Baileys.  It will cause you to breathe deeper and smile bigger.


*  Want to put a little hop in your step?  Drink Baileys and you will suddenly think you qualify for Dancing with the Stars.


*  Need to chill it on Christmas morning? Spike your coffee with Baileys.  Shhh.  No one will know your secret.  A 007 top secret to Christmas survival.

Baileys in your coffee is one of the few socially acceptable times to drink alcohol for breakfast.   Go for it. I would never do that.  I would totally do that.




P.S. This Baileys recipe should come with a warning label.  Sip it in small doses, otherwise you will be LOOPED.  It’s strong.  It may possibly put hair on your chest.  THAT strong.   This Baileys is not for sissies.  It is not for the faint of heart.   It is a recipe for Christmas road warriors.  The warriors who stay up all night wrapping presents.


Need a quick Christmas gift?


This is easy sneezy to make.  You can find a beautifully simple, clear glass bottle at Ikea for less than $3 and bottle it as a gift.



Note : Pine needles and greenery are free :).  Nice Christmas budget, huh?  Pinecones are stolen from the bastards treehouse squirrels when they weren’t looking.   Those squirrels think they OWN all pinecones around here. What the what what? That is why I drink.



An updated version and a printable of this recipe is available here on the blog too!   You’ll love it! Go check it out here.

    Hi Alena
    In the grocery store, I buy light cream, or half and half cream and that’s table cream. Hope that helps! Lynne xx

    what if i wanted to make a big batch and give away as christmas gifts at work? how would you change the amounts of ingredients

    Hi Tara,
    This recipe will fill a blender. You could make it as one batch at a time by mixing it in the blender, using a funnel and funnelling it into bottles. It is quite easy to do it as one blender mixture at a time.

    Merry Christmas!

    Lynne, I have made many, many bottles of this and I love it. Have given as gifts and kept some for my own enjoyment.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Deana,
    You crack me up. I should probably change my blog post away from the Christmas season, since it’s super yummy any time of year. It’s so cool that you are an expat living in a Muslim country. It must be so beautiful there! Traveling/living abroad is such a FAB experience for the most part. Big love, Lynne xx

    Hi Ginger,

    I have never purchased Everclear. Is it a vodka? If so, yes. 🙂

    This sounds worth a go. Our neighbor cranks out bottles of homemade kahlua,, aka “Christmas Cheer”, every year and long have I been wanting to usurp her. This may even up the ante of the annual X-mas basket X-Change (“You put a freaking smoked turkey in this year? What the hell?”)…. Who knows…maybe I’ll even get invited in to drink it. Bottoms up!!

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Pam,
    I love your last name! You can get some great bottles from Ikea. They are only a couple of dollars each. I add a little label on them sometimes too. So pretty!

    Soooooo good, isn’t it Ben?! I think you should mix it with some green tea next time! 🙂

    What size can of sweetened condensed milk do you use? Can you give it to me in ounces? Thanks Linda

  18. Lynne Knowlton

    December 24th, 2018 at 10:12 am

    Hi Linda, oh goodness, I’m not sure what size it is in ounces. I will be buying more today tho, so I will double check for you. I only thought it came in one size, to tell you the truth. Happy holidays! Check back soon! Lynne
