I have a foolproof recipe for homemade baileys

1x can condensed milk
1x can evaporated milk
2 x tsps glycerine
small strong espresso
whisky to taste.

Mix really well - I use an electric beater and chill!

I made my bil skittles flavoured vodka last year and it went down a storm. I found a set of 5 small bottles with kilner type lids in tkmaxx.
You just separate the skittles into different colours (large sharing size bag), put them into containers and cover with vodka. Leave for about a week and then strain through muslin into their own bottle.

I just used card luggage tags and rafia type string to label them. This was part of a small hamper I did for him and it looked pretty good and was well received.

Chili vodka would be good! I like the way Squsihy does things!

I've got some rhubarb schnapps brewing. Got the recipe off another thread here somewhere.

I fancy a go at making some toffee rum. Tasted some at a show at the weekend that was divine, but they were selling it at £20+ a bottle shock. Do you think it would be just a case of sticking a bags of toffees into a big jar of rum?

Rhubarb schnapps was basically rhubarb cut into small chunks, sugar, bottle of vodka, vanilla pod, cardamom pods. Can't remember exact quantities, but will see if I can find the thread with it on.
