I wish I may, I wish I might … drink homemade Baileys tonight.
It’s magic juice, it just falls in your mouth.
WARNING: Don’t drink too much of this stuff. You’ll start licking faces.
This is the best homemade baileys in the history of ever.
Double stamped it.
You peeps apparently like to drink.
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.
Technically, I should call this homemade Baileys recipe … ‘giggle face’. It brings out the happy go lucky in people.
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, sip baileys and Christmas shop from your ‘puter.
Shopping in a hectic mall during Christmas season … well … that is such a drag.
A mall makes me go ackkkkkk.
Baileys makes me go ahhhhhh.
Food courts and shopping malls just bring out the worst in me. I’m as tough as a two dollar steak. I make a navy seal look like a little girl.
Just the thought of shopping in a mall makes me go limp. My arms become like jelly and I’m instantly exhausted.
My inner sucky kid cries, I wanna go home.
A challenge for YOU and ME
This year my goal is to continue to just chill it.
I am going to make things (that don’t take every second of my life), order my presents online and just … E.N.J.O.Y.
I’m making that promise to myself.
Let’s do this CHILL IT thing together.
Winter season is coming. Soon, Canadians will be swallowed by snow and dating their snow blowers all season. Canadian winters are fun like that.
This is why we drink, peeps. This is why we drink.
Winter in Canada is a shitastrophy shit storm.
When we drink coffee, it gives us unrealistic expectations of productivity.
When we drink Baileys, it gives us realistic expectations of giddiness.
Laughing never gets old.
It’s holiday season.
I broke up with mall shopping.
Read: I shop from home, sip baileys and watch Downton Abbey for 12 straight hours in a row while eating chocolate and wrapping presents. That’s my kinda Christmas.
That’s my happy place. Sip.
I didn’t want to be that mall girl with my inner voice screaming
‘ I’m going to swing my shopping bag, catapult it across the floor and directly hit someone right square between the eyeballs’
Told you. I needed to chill it. This GoGo gadget needed to take a chill pill. It ain’t worf it. Mall shopping. It just ain’t worf it.
I’m getting my sanity back. One bite at a time.
The coffee, homemade baileys and chocolate will definitely help.
Ready for it ?! Start with some simple glass bottles so you can make some presents. I found some here on Amazon.
Don’t have time for that? Just grab whatever you have that has the least amount of dust on it.
Homemade Baileys Recipe

13 oz. vodka
1 can (300 ml) eagle brand condensed milk (the magic ingredient). I swear it says that on the can. It’s magic juice.
2 tbsp. chocolate syrup ( I use Nestle’s Nesquik )
1 pint ( 16 oz.) of table cream ( I even use the 5 % light version for fewer calories LOL)
Put it all in a blender. BLEND. Drink.
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.
Trust me, you’ll drink it all before then. It’s so good.
I . Can’t. Even.
Because I made homemade baileys, I’m domestic, dammit. I have a special free Baileys recipe printable for you!
