My Kentucky Kream cocktail

3rd January, 2013 by Curtis McMillan

For many years I would give my very large family the gift of booze on Christmas.

The main ingredient.

The main ingredients

This act always seemed easy and after some consideration I made the decision to build my gifts for the family this year.

I wanted to build an Irish cream made with mint and Kentucky bourbon as a substitute for the Irish whiskey base.

This is the recipe that I used. I hope it does you well. Also note this product will have a life of about 16 days. Keep refrigerated at all times and shake it each time before you use it.

Kentucky 2Kentucky Kream (Irish cream alternative)

· 1 1/4 cups Bourbon

· 1 tablespoon instant coffee

· 14 ounces (1 can) condensed sweetened milk

· 1/2 cup heavy cream

· 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (I would suggest against this)

· 1oz Creme de menthe

· 2 tablespoons honey

Makes about 4 cups
