Homemade Irish Cream & The Poetry and Song of Ireland

We are getting ready for my oldest daughters 18th birthday tomorrow and have had lots of requests for Shawn's Homemade Irish Cream which we love to serve over ice cream.   I thought I'd share this recipe again that I posted last year.  Rich and thick Irish Cream is so easy to make!  What better time to make it than for St. Patrick's Day...or a special birthday celebration?

The Irish Cream is so so so so so yummy over coffee flavored ice cream (we buy Blue Bell) and topped with crumbled up Heath bars.  I can't wait for dessert!

But first...we have to have dinner.

From the book, The Poetry and Song of John Boyle O'Reilly Circa 1887

We are the music makers,
We are the dreamers of dreams
Wandering by the lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams:
World losers and world forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams,
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
~Arthur O'Shaughnessy~
