Knock-off Baileys two ways

A couple of weeks ago the lovely Sadhbh of Where Wishes Come From asked me to partake in her #CraftAdvent 2015. I of course couldn’t not. I asked if I could submit a [boozy] recipe instead and Sadhbh was all over it. I wanted to try making a dairy-free and egg-free version of Baileys and figured this was the perfect excuse opportunity. So with my grandmother’s recipe at hand, I created a vegan version of it and YOU GUYS. IT’S SO GUD. Obviously, it’s not the exact, exact same as Baileys, but it’s soooo close. If you’d like to see the full recipe, head over to Sadhbh’s blog post here! Includes a regular version and vegan. So. GUD

I’ll be enjoying a glass this evening as among all the craziness that’s happened over the past 2 weeks I’ve agreed to do a little something for TV. It might lead to more. I’m terrified within an inch of my life so I’ve agreed to do one segment, see whether I like it [or curl into a permanent fetal position] and take it from there. Things will be a lot less vague in the new year, I promise! But for now, bottoms up.

      We'll see! I don't know just yet if it's going ahead. I'm super nervous about it, but of course I'll be sharing a video of sorts of it! x

    My mom has a great recipe that she makes every year… unfortunately she would also kill me if I posted it for the world to see. Damn it. This looks delicious. I want a Baileys now. Just thinking about Baileys might have made me drunk. Also, "This is as close as you can get to Baileys without your eyes getting wet". 😉

      Unfortunately, I never got the chance to ask my nannie if I could share her recipe. However I don't think she would have objected! I did ask my dad and he didn't see any problems. Share the (drunken) knowledge, I say!

      Moose milk? That sounds so dirty, but only because I have the mind of a 13 year old boy 😉

      Is that like eggnog or something?

    Seeing as the minute it's officially December I start using Baileys as a sugar substitute for my coffee (I'm not an alcoholic, it's Christmas!) I'll have to try this 😉 Can't wait to see what you have coming up, congrats!
