This was great and easy. I've made Irish Cream for coworkers (20-40 so I make many batches!) for several years as a holiday gift, first year using this recipe. I did modify by using 1.5 c whiskey and a little less than a teaspoon of almond based on other reviews.
I also made a batch with brandy instead of whiskey because I have two gluten-free coworkers - apparently some whiskeys are not gluten free. I prefer whiskey but the brandy is really good, too. (I received an email reply from E&J that their brandy is for sure gluten-free.)
My tips if you make larger quantities:
~ You can make two batches at a time in a Ninja blender (love that thing).
~ Measure out the first recipe and add a piece of tape to the outside for the cream height, add the whiskey and another piece of tape - after that you don't have to measure those separately in a measuring cup as long as you always add them first. The Ninja jar is accurate but only without the mixing piece in it and I didn't want to keep taking it in and out.
~ Bottle in mason jars - you can buy great bottles with a cap at IKEA but they're $4/each and pretty big - I'm too lazy to make that many batches! If you have the enthusiasm and the cost isn't prohibitive, this would be nice - they can reuse the bottle.
~ When I made for less people I used the big mason jars but the pint are fine - this is pretty strong so it's not like people need a huge jar! :)
