St. Paddy's Day is approaching apace and the internet abounds with Guinness- and Bailey's-Irish-Cream-flavored treats. If you're on a low-carb or sugar-free diet, you might think you need to abstain from heavily sweetened liqueurs like Irish cream. But making sugar-free liqueurs is easy, and this homemade Irish cream takes only a few minutes to whip up. Then you can use it in your favorite cocktails or baked goods, or just sip it on its own. I used mine to frost some low-carb, gluten-free brownies.
I used star anise to get that little hint of licorice flavor that Bailey's Irish Cream has, but if you don't have any on hand, you can just skip it. Either way, it's a truly delicious liqueur that you don't have to feel guilty about.
Makes about 2 cups. Serves 16.
