Hand Made Irish Cream

I like a little splash of Irish Cream in my coffee, hot milk, hot chocolate, or vanilla ice cream.  I don`t like how expensive it can be though.  I have tried some of the "wine-based" creams, and while they are fine in a pinch, they still don't have the full-bodied taste of a true Irish Cream.  I recently found a recipe on line that was so easy, I thought I'd try it.  I've seen other "home-made Irish Cream" recipes before, but some of them were complicated, and some of the ingredients difficult to find.  This one is easy, and tastes very rich and creamy.  Don't drink too much, it's strong, it's FULL of calories.  It also can't stay on the shelf without being refrigerated.  Cheers!
