So I am going to keep it short and sweet, before I start rambling. I couldn’t help but drink a little bit too much– What can I say? It is a time of Celebration .
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when making this drink.
I have tried Jameson liquor but do prefer rum whisky . It’s my favorite and love rum flavor . For an authentic Irish Cream flavor you might want to use any Irish liquor like Jameson Whiskey.
I have adapted the flavor to suit my taste buds. By all means do the same.
