My Holiday Irish Cream liqueur is beautiful to serve and even better to enjoy. This recipe will create a perfect complement to your holiday meal and is sure to wow guests.
I was given the recipe by a close friend. Every year she would bring this delicious cocktail to parties, it was a special treat I always looked forward to. The tale is that it has been passed down in her family for generations.
After years of requests, I finally got my hands on the recipe. I was thrilled – until I looked at the list of ingredients. It called for RAW eggs.
I have taken the ServSafe® course many times in my career which reinforces that eggs are NOT to be eaten raw. How could I ever serve this to my guests?
I have held onto this recipe, never having the courage to actually make it, until I attended Blog Brûlée.
It was here that a representative from Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs educated me and my fellow nutrition bloggers on their pasteurized eggs.
What are safe eggs you ask? Davidson’s Safest Choice® all-natural pasteurization uses a gentle warm water bath—without changing the nutrition or flavor of the egg. Click to see how they pasteurize eggs.
The process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs. Most eggs sold in cartons are NOT pasteurized. Having these eggs pasteurized means it is okay to eat them raw. My problem was solved!
When I was invited to take part in the Davidson’s Safest Choice® Blogger Recipe Contest, I immediately thought of this Holiday Irish Cream recipe. I am proud to let you know that with this blog post, I am entering for a change to win a prize through Davidson’s Safest Choice®. Now that I found a safe way to enjoy this delicious recipe, I feel good sharing it with you this holiday season. Cross your fingers!
Irish Cream is not the most healthy drink, so I played with the recipe to make it easier on the waistline. I simply replaced the whipping cream called for with 2% milk. I sampled this version recently at a get together – it got rave reviews. No one even realized it was a healthier version, and when they found out they asked for a second glass. 🙂
