The best homemade baileys recipe in the history of ever

The best homemade BAILEYS in the history of ever

The best homemade baileys in the history of ever. It’s magic juice, it just falls in your mouth.  WARNING:  Don’t drink too much of this stuff.  You’ll start licking faces.

{  Enter your email below to have the recipe instantly emailed to you. }

I can’t take all the credit.  I stole the recipe from my bestie (25 years ago!). Yup. It’s THAT good.

Two years ago, I had mentioned Baileys all casual like on the blog, as if it wasn’t a big deal.

And it wasn’t.

Until it was.

You peeps apparently like to drink.

Why not just buy Baileys from the liquor store?

Don’t go there.

The problem with the Baileys from the liquor store is that it can give you a sugar high and then a low.  You’ll have to scrape yourself off the concrete.   The mix of sugar, chemicals and preservatives are just ewehhhh.

It’s much more peaceful to stay at home and sip baileys.

Winter in Canada is a shitastrophy shit storm. This is why we drink, peeps. This is why we drink.

When we drink coffee, it gives us unrealistic expectations of productivity.


Laughing never gets old.

Baileys ramps up the laugh your ass off factor.

When we drink Baileys, it gives us realistic expectations of giddiness.

It’s holiday season.

We drink.

We wrap.

We bake.

We eat raw cookie dough.  Shut your face, cookie dough.  Yeah, I’m looking at you.

Let’s get this baileys party started. Brace yourself.  This is good stuff.

Warning:  It is strong.  So strong, it may put hair on your chest.  It isn’t syrupy sweet.

Ready for it ?! Start with some simple glass bottles so you can make some presents.   I found some here on Amazon.

  • For gifts: Pour in glass bottles.  Wrap it up.  I dare you to not drink it before you give it away.  Drink whatever is left in the blender.  You’ll be fine.
  • NOTE:  This recipe makes enough to fill a blender.  It will last as long as your cream ‘best before’ date shows.
  • Keep refrigerated.
  • Trust me, you’ll drink it all before then. It’s so good.

I .  Can’t.  Even.

You’re welcome.

Girl you crack me up your blog posts are the best its currently 2.15am in the UK and I was just about to log off and saw your blog post and damn it I had to read it NOW and your photos and words are the best you have such a gift baby. Im with you on the not going shopping I cant bear the crowds and people getting ratty. We did a food shop this afternoon at our supermarket and I swear you would of thought tomorrow was xmas day. I can feel the xmas rush beginning to build and Id rather be at home chillaxin. This will be my first xmas subscribed to your blog and I cant wait to see how you decorate your place for xmas. I have to admit Canadian winters would make me hibernate like a big grizzly bear. I would love to be curled up by your open fires and I can just imagine the smell around your house of real crackling burning wood. Heaven. Well missy I need my beauty sleep so enjoy the rest of your weekend and easy on the Baileys don’t wanna peak too soon ;o)

    Funny enough, your timing for subscribing is PARFAIT!! This year, I’m posting a few holiday inspired posts with faboosh decorating ideas.

    Guess what? They are going to be quite simple. Easy to copy. I hope you feel totally inspired. Simple greenery. Soft lights. Simply good. Imagine that? SIMPLE. haha.

    Hey morning missy – glad I made your night I meant what I said you have such a way with words and your photos well what can I say jaw droppingly gorgeous. Xmas shopping is the worst Im sure I saw a cartoon once which showed someone going shopping as if it was a scene in Disney birds chirping, songs and laughter filling the air and before they get home they turn into atilla the hun ready to massacre anyone who stands in their way. Lets face it we have the wonderful thing called the internet so we can finally say goodbye to that and sit at home and clickty clickty shop. Love it simple that is what Im all about reminds me of the statement less is more I hate seeing xmas scenes with tons of clutter. Do you have the meerkat adverts in Canada they are everywhere in the UK and the old saying “simples” never gets old. Well I look forward to what you do around your house Im literally like a kid at xmas waiting for your next blog post (nothing like pressure eh????!??!?). Right I neeeeeeeeeeeeeed coffee Ive just got up and ready to have a lovely funday sunday so keep doing what you’re doing and hairy mistress baby ;o)

    Yummy! I made your recipe last year and sipped the whole thing by Boxing Day. My family stopped asking me what was in my cup. They just knew by the glow on my cheeks. They also knew not to take any for themselves and that their hand would be slapped if they got caught even touching the stash in the fridge. 🙂

    New to your blog and loving It! Thanks for the Baileys recipe. I am definitely going to try it. Started some homemade Limoncello off last week. That will be ready for Christmas. Have some foraged Blackberry vodka too. It’s going to be a merry one!

  22. Lynne Knowlton

    November 16th, 2014 at 10:12 am

    Allison !!!! <---- I screamed your name. You have a recipe for homemade Limoncello?! Spill it, girly! Is it too late to start it? Is it divine? Is it one of those recipes where you hang the lemon inside the jar. Gimme. Gimme. Gimme. Foraged Blackberry Vodka?!! Can you be my new best friend? Lynne xx

  23. Allison C

    November 16th, 2014 at 10:30 am

    Ha ha!

    Here is the recipe
    Really easy, just takes some time to zest and squeeze the lemons. You have time before Christmas!

    I live in Wales, UK. We have great foraging around here. Mostly turned into booze – Blackberry Wine (surprisingly good), Damson Rum (really nice almond taste if you leave the stones in), Sloe Gin (the best especially if you can leave it a few months), Blackberry and Vanilla vodka.

    Take care

    Hi Sally!

    Good point !!

    I just adjusted the blog post to reflect that. Yes, you need to refrigerate it, because it has table cream in it.

    AND… I was talking to you… LOL.

    Enjoy! 🙂

    Oh Lynne, Our hockey coaches won’t know what hit them! What a great gift! There, all of my Christmas shopping done. I haven’t met a teacher yet who didn’t need liquor by Christmas…except for the Applegate teachers who seemed so serene ALL the time.
    I’m looking for True Lemon crystals…my grocery store has stopped carrying them after MANY years, and it was without warning–so I didn’t stock up! What Amazon distributor do you use? Every one that I have looked up doesn’t ship to me! Yikes! I’m not THAT far off the beaten path. And I’m just not organized enough to have a fresh lemon in my fridge every day…besides, they don’t travel well…customs seems to frown on travelling with fresh citrus. Please help.

  56. Lynne Knowlton

    November 25th, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Hey Donna,

    Table cream is the same cream that you would use in coffee.

    You can buy it as a regular table cream, half n half or even light cream. I use the half n half or 5% light cream.

    It’s all good!!!

    PS. I swear, you could use mud and it would still taste great. LOL. This recipe is THAT good.

    Jacqui, if you are going to use whiskey, then just buy Baileys already.
    Using Vodka is great….you can even make your own Vodka at home….I have heard…..haha. Much, much less expensive….
    Just made a batch and it tastes great….but I wonder if adding some coffee would make it even greater…??

    Lynn, I meant adding a little bit of instant coffee into the Bailey’s recipe. The other way around goes without saying….hahaha….
    Only sipping…? Sure that sounds good….

    Definitely need this to survive in NoDak, US! Everyone begs me for it, I’ve been using your recipe for 2 years.. I do, However, add a tsp of instant coffee (mainly because I had it from making homemade kahlua). It’s in my coffee daily 😛 cheers!

    Hi Love:
    I have to ask you if we can invent a special occasion to make some more Bailey’s. Ummm, Like it’s Saturday lol. I’m still laughing at how many people insist Bailey’s needs to be made with Whiskey. Please… this Vodka version is delicious. Who’s pouring?

    Yayyyyy it’s Saturday. Perfect day for Baileys….We have a new special occasion. Saturday baileys. haha.

    Love ya! xx

    So interesting Rudy, since none of those ingredients are in my recipe. You may want to try my recipe instead. Cheers.
