Irish Cream Liqueur

Irish Cream Liqueur

When we cook in our kitchen we tend to get real. Really real. We can spend hours sharing our hearts, our fears, prayers, and frustrations. Our anger, joy, success and our wins.

This Irish Cream is festive and delicious. Make it with a friend and enjoy this season of generosity.

Sometimes, stuff gets so real that we mess up bad on a recipe …but that’s not what we’re here to talk about. We’re here to tell the importance of why we like to share our kitchens. Sure, we both love food with equal passion, but we also love good conversation and sharing life with others.

If you all lived close to us, we would have each one of you over for a meal where we could get to know you. You’d hopefully stay late into the evening, leaving behind a table of crumpled cloth napkins and dishes that were once full of foods both savory and sweet. Unfortunately, having you cook our recipes might be as close as we ever get to sharing a kitchen. So consider this recipe our Christmas gift to you. Coincidentally, it was first given to us by a woman who—much like ourselves—loves to cook in the presence of company.

We encourage you to be generous this year, knowing that generosity can be much more than just wrapped gifts. Be generous with your time, your hands and heart. Sometimes the best gifts are ones that money can’t buy.

This Irish Cream is festive and delicious. Make it with a friend and enjoy this season of generosity.
