This is such a pretty drink, with the whipped cream and little sprinkles on top--I'll definitely keep this one in mind for St. Patty's day! Thanks for sharing!

How long does the creamer keep?
Conservatively, a week. For myself, I usually keep it as long as the expiration date on my milk/half-and-half/cream.
Thank you! I love this recipe! I’ve made this twice now, it’s definitely a keeper 🙂
It's my husband's favorite too! So glad you liked it!

Ooh, I like that other commenter’s idea to make a boozy batch and a non-boozy batch. I know so many friends and family who would love this!
I think I could drink this plain, lol — looks SO good! Thank you!
Can this coffee creamer be frozen??
I don't really recommend freezing milk or cream because it separates when it thaws.
I would like to know what type of instant coffee granules?
I just have a little jar of Folgers instant coffee that I use for this and other recipes.
I remember Irish cream to have a minty flavor. I don’t see an ingredient that sod bring
That Irish cream flavor.
Nope, no mint flavor. Irish cream is basically Bailey's liqueur. A creamy, chocolate concoction with Irish whiskey.
I love Irish cream, but can’t use the Bailey’s version in my coffee during the week so I’m excited to try this! Quick question, the ingredients say heavy cream but the instructions say half and half, which one is correct?
The directions should really say cream, but you could substitute half-and-half for the cream if you wanted. It would be a little less rich.
