First, for those that are thinking "Bailey's"... forget it. This is not a copy-cat recipe. I say that because I had been hoping that it would be something akin to Bailey's and I was disappointed. Now, having said that, it's not too bad for a cream-liquor drink and I will probably make it again (with some modifications).
I followed the recipe exactly except that I doubled everything in order to fill one of my 1/2 gallon growlers. Doubling everything makes a little more than a 1/2 gallon. Also, I used an entire 750ml (25 oz) bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey so 1 2/3 C of whiskey was off just a small amount (.0975oz).
As written, this recipe is 3-stars (OK). When I make it again, I will be cutting the amount of chocolate syrup in half. I'm not a huge chocolate milk fan and this recipe was too much like chocolate milk for my liking. Other than that, I will keep everything else the same. Unlike many, I didn't find the almond extract overpowering nor the amount of whiskey too strong; but to each his/her own. I would suggest trying it as written first... then decide on what adjustments need to be implemented. Don't assume that because someone else says that "... its too strong..." that you will find it to be true for you.
