Have you checked the price of Bailey's Irish Cream lately, $30.00 a bottle on sale. Okay, so I still buy it on occasion. To be honest this home made recipe is just as good if not better. A friend gave me this recipe about 5 years ago. She is a liquor sales person, strange. You can make a big vat of this for $30.00, and it keeps refrigerated up to a month. Also makes a great gift.
Don't get all twisted about the eggs, the whiskey will cook them, much like lemon juice does in mayo.
