Canadian Cream Liqueur

A must for the holidays. None of the edible oil product and preservatives that the stuff from the store has. This cream liqueur is soooo delicious and soooo easy to make, you won't believe it. If it's not in my coffee, I like to have this delectable drink over coffee ice cubes. Yum!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone!

Make the coffee ice cubes by pouring brewed coffee into ice cube trays or mini muffin tins. Freeze overnight. This step is optional but it is a match made in heaven.

I prefer Canadian rye whiskey to the more traditional Irish whiskey, but I may be biased. 

Combine the whipping cream and the condensed milk into a blender. Blend briefly to combine. 

Add the chocolate sauce, vanilla and almond extract.

Dissolve the instant coffee in a bit of warm water. Then add the whiskey. Blend till just combined.
That's it, your done!

Put it into pretty bottles. It makes a great gift. Store in the refrigerator, remember it has real cream and no preservatives. It should be consumed before the best before date of the cream. No pressure. 

Serve over coffee ice cubes. Enjoy!

1 can condensed milk
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 cups Canadian rye whiskey
1 teaspoon instant coffee
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

2  cups strong coffee- poor into ice cube trays or mini muffin tins and freeze to make coffee ice cubes

Combine condensed milk and whipping cream into a blender. dissolve the coffee in a small amount of hot water, add coffee to the milk mixture. Add chocolate syrup, vanilla and almond extract. Lastly add the whiskey. Blend on medium until just combined.

You must be careful. Do not add the whiskey directly to the cream or it will curdle. Whipping the mixture to long will also make it curdle. Blend only until the mixture is combined

Adjust the amount of whiskey to suit your taste.

Refrigerate the mixture. It tastes better when it is left for a couple of days for the flavours to blend. Remember, this drink has real cream in it and no preservatives. Record the best before date of the cream. It should be consumed by then, no pressure.

Serve poured over coffee ice cubes. Delish!
A must for the holidays. Makes an excellent gift for friends and family.
