      This is the world's top-selling liqueur. Gilbey's in Ireland didn't
      know what to do with its surplus of spirit, but luckily someone came
      up with the idea of a bottled Irish coffee. It was launched in 1975
      and was an immediate success because it contains everything doctors
      say is good for you - alcohol, rich cream, caffeine. It is 17%abv. If
      we assume that it is basically an Irish coffee with different
      proportions, here is a possible recipe to try out on your
      wife/partner/girlfriend:

      Bailey's Irish Cream
      500 ml. (2 cups) rich (double) cream (the light has thickeners)
      500 ml. (2 cups) Irish style whiskey (40%av)
      3-4 tsp. instant coffee (real coffee is acidic, which might curdle the
      cream)
      1 cup of sugar
      Blend and refrigerate.

      There are recipes using condensed milk substitutes, but why not go for
      the real O'Connor.
      There is a recipe for a substitute Cream Base from
