  • 1 1/4 cups rum substitution options: Irish whiskey, brandy, bourbon, scotch or rye
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 2 tsp coffee granules
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract


  • Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  • Puree until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled and serve with or without ice. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.


Use your favorite liquor for this recipe, but here are a few great options: Irish whiskey, brandy, rum (my personal fave), bourbon, scotch or rye. Each one will produce a different flavor, so experiment a bit if you'd like!
Use ground or instant coffee for this drink. The instant variety is fine to use, but in my opinion ground coffee is much more flavorful. The coffee flavor adds so much depth to the end result, so don't skip this ingredient.
This recipe is the PERFECT Christmas gift! Pour it into glass bottles, put a cute little label on it and hand it out to friends and family members this year.
If you don't have a blender, use a hand mixer to blend on high speed for 30-60 seconds.
This is the perfect beverage to enjoy around the holidays, but can also be enjoyed to celebrate St Patrick's Day!
Replace a portion (up to 1/2 cup) of the heavy cream with your favorite flavored coffee creamer.
