There are heaps of recipes for this online, but I add a little secret something that my Mum taught me, and I think it adds a nice little twist. So here's to you all. Have a great Christmas, and drink up!
250-300 mLs/8-10oz Irish whiskey - I prefer Jameson Irish Whiskey
250 mLs/8oz thickened cream
1 tin of condensed milk (395g I think they are these days)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 scant tsp coconut essence (the secret ingredient) or use 1 large tsp coffee powder if you prefer
2-3 large tbs chocolate syrup
Put everything into a blender and whizz till combined. Or do as I did, put it all into a jug and whizz away with a stick blender. This time I only got a little bit all over me!!
Drink with ice.
|pouring in the whiskey|
|adding chocolate syrup|
|and now the condensed milk|
|blend away- try not to get it all over yourself:)|
|give up on the blender and whisk by hand :)|
|pour into little bottles so you can give some away and keep the rest for yourself!|
I cannot believe the week I have had! I have ruined 2 library books- one with coffee, and the other with champagne going all over it. I have had my ancient blender erupt milk all over the kitchen floor as the rubber seal seems to have melted away. I have spilt endless things all over me and the kitchen, and then of course this morning the stick blender decided to throw this drink at me! I am becoming terrified to touch anything liquid at the moment! Well, here's hoping you all fare better than I did in the liquid wars.
Have a great festive season!
