Homemade Irish Cream
Grannymac’s Irish Cream is a recipe from my mother from 2nd World War Northern Ireland, which we serve at The Red Stag as our “much better than Baileys” Liqueur. It can also be incorporated in our McCarthy’s Irish Cream Coffee. You can now take home your very own bottle. Just add 8oz. of your favorite Irish Whiskey, shake and serve! If you don’t love it, we’ll be really surprised.
Many of our original recipes came from a bundle of handwritten notes from my mother’s handbag when she died, many other recipes came from family members or friends. Growing up in Lambeg, County Antrim any guest or visitor to my house had to be served a pot of tea and some kind of home baked treat. My Granny McCarthy who did a lot of my rearing made sure I knew the proper way to make the tea and I was accustomed to providing hospitality even at an early age to anybody who came to my house. The origins of hospitality and recipes used at McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub came from my upbringing, lessons and priorities I learned from my Mother and Grandmother.
