  • 1 cup light cream I used heavy whipping cream, which made it even richer. If you have problems with clotting, though, you should use light cream.
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 2/3 cup Irish whiskey I used Jameson's, but I think that a cheaper Irish whiskey wouldn't make a difference in taste.
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee You can also use leftover espresso, but keep in mind that you are adding extra water.
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract I skipped this entirely for my version, but if you like almond more than I do, throw it in!


  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and set on low speed for 30 seconds. If you blend at too high a speed, you might wind up with coagulation or foaming.
  • Bottle in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate. Shake before using.
  • Will keep for up to 2 months.


Total time includes time to cool in the refrigerator.
