Bottles are available singly or in excellent value bulk packs. Wares of Knutsford’s delivery charge is not dependent upon order size so it makes sense to buy in bulk.
Fill your small glass bottles with home made Irish cream
This ridiculously indulgent and very adult treat makes an unusual and memorable gift. Present in miniature whisky bottles, prettily labelled, to be served over ice or in coffee.
- 250ml single cream
- 397g tin condensed milk
- 350ml Irish whiskey
- 1 teaspoon Camp coffee essence
- 3 teaspoons chocolate sauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon almond essence
Start by sterilising your small glass bottles. The easiest way to do this is by running them through the hot cycle in a dishwasher. Alternatively you can boil them in plenty of water for 5-10 minutes or place on a baking sheet in an oven at 160*C for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool before filling.
The Irish cream is very easy to make – simply add all the ingredients to a blender and whizz together for about 30 seconds or until well combined. Add a little extra Camp or chocolate sauce according to taste. Pour the Irish cream into the cooled, sterilised bottles, seal and store in the refrigerator for up to two months. Shake the bottles well before opening.
