Is it worth making homemade Irish Whiskey Cream?
The taste is definitely all there - I loved it. I made a litre of it and it does work out cheaper to make than to buy. I could save up to £8 if I'd bought the cheapest bottle of whiskey (or whisky) in the shop - but this wasn't Irish whiskey. With the Irish whiskey I found available I still make a saving, but just not as much. (I also had to buy the eggs, as I'm not getting eggs on the smallholding at the moment).
Final verdict: I'll definitely make some more for drinking by the fire at Christmas!
