homemade Baileys Irish cream (no fructose)

I love Baileys but hate the zillion chemicals added....so I started making my own a few years ago. This recipe is super simple and tastes fresher and better than the original (I think). It's much less sweet, relying more on the sweetness of full cream, but you can add as much or as little brown rice syrup as you like....or another liquid sweetener if you don't care about fructose (fructose free).

P.S. ladder tree in the background...it's a thing. 

Yield: 4 cups

Ingredients
2 cups full fat cream (a.k.a. whipping cream) 
1 cup Jameson Irish whiskey (this makes a medium-strong batch)
1 cup fresh strong coffee (decaf works great too)
1Tbsp-1/4 cup brown rice syrup

Instructions
1. Stir coffee & brown rice syrup together (one that you can eventually pour from) and allow the brown rice syrup to fully melt
2. Add whipping cream
3. Add whiskey
4. Store in the fridge. Allow to chill fully if serving over ice
5. Best consumed within 4-5 days


P.P.S best Christmas song EVER, in my opinion.  A holiday story with a happy ending.
