How to make copycat Bailey’s Irish Cream
If you’re wondering, “How is Bailey’s made?” or “What kind of alcohol is in Bailey’s?” or if you’ve ever googled, “What is the difference between liquor and liqueur?” I’m here to help. Let’s break it down:
- Bailey’s Irish Cream is made with cream, Irish whiskey, an emulsifier (containing refined vegetable oil) a cocoa extract blend, sugar cane and sugar beet, and a few other secret ingredients
- While the bottled stuff from Bailey’s is made with Irish whiskey from various distilleries, I recommend Jameson Irish Whiskey as it has 0 carbs for a 1 ounce serving
- Liquor is any kind of alcoholic drink or distilled spirit, and liqueur is just a flavored and/or sweetened liquor. Typically, liqueur is sweetened with fruits, herbs, spices, flowers, or nuts. Liqueur can also refer to cream combined with distilled spirits, like in the case of Bailey’s
When it comes to low carb cocktails, it’s best to make your own from scratch so that you can control the ingredients. But that doesn’t mean that the recipe has to be complicated. In fact, in order to make this Keto Irish Cream recipe, all you have to do is gather the ingredients, toss them into a blender, and pulse until combined. Each recipe makes 14 2-ounce servings, and you can even store leftovers in the fridge for up to a month!

So it’s Friday night and you’re feeling alright. You’re ready to dance the night away with a cocktail in your hand. OR, if you are more like me, you want to have a cocktail at home with friends. But how do you know what to drink? What is the best alcohol for a low carb diet. Or what alcohol is lowest in carbs?
First, I’m going to break down the carbs in alcohol for you. Check out my Complete Guide to Carbs in Alcohol. If you’re wondering… Can you have alcohol on a low carb diet? Is alcohol keto? You might be saying to yourself “But wait? I can’t! I’m low carb.” Well, you are NOT low carb. You’re are a person following a low carb lifestyle. Do not be defined by your dietary decisions. Doing so will lead to a life of restriction and feeling restricted often causes us to stray from our intended path. Besides, who wants to pass up low carb gummy worms. Especially when they are boozy low carb gummy worms.
