Baileys Irish Cream is a delicious drink that is popular around the world, particularly as an evening treat over the festive season.
It is also used as an ingredient in various desserts such as cheesecakes, sponges, trifles and sundaes.
However, one downside to the drink, is that it can be a bit costly, especially if a large amount is needed as ingredients for party snacks.
One way to help avoid expensive shopping bills when preparing for a dinner party is to make your own alternative to Baileys Irish Cream.
It is simple to do, and much cheaper than the real thing. And when done correctly, most people would struggle to tell the difference between real Baileys and its home-made alternative.
