DIY “Irish Cream” With Papa Smith for Father’s Day

It’s been a tradition in the Smith household for years — my Dad’s  famous “Smith Cream.” Very similar to Irish Cream, it eschews the conventional Irish Whiskey for a 100% rye alternative. It is absolutely delicious and a fantastic beverage for those looking to imbibe a tasty treat — and for those not overly concerned about calorie intake.


  • 2-3 eggs (three for a thicker texture)
  • 1 can sweetened, condensed milk (my Dad insists on Eagle Brand)
  • 500 ml 18% table cream
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups 100% rye whiskey (like Alberta Premium)
  • 2-3 generous tablespoons chocolate syrup


Beat eggs well and place in large bowl. Add condensed milk, table cream, almond extract, rye and chocolate syrup. Stir slowly with spatula until mostly blended. Whisk vigourously until completely homogeneous. Great with coffee!
