Homemade Irish Cream over ice

A Facebook post from my friend Melissa, reminded me of a couple of drink recipes in y grandmother’s recipe box. This recipe, for Irish Cream, is like chocolate milk with a kick. It’s comforting and homey, and a most delicious treat to drink on a cold evening while you are wrapping your holiday gifts!
This recipe. according to my grandmother’s recipe card, is courtesy of Judy, which Judy, I’m not sure, but thank you kindly, Judy, wherever you are!
