Italian Cream Liqueur is perfect for sipping, for stirring into hot coffee or tea, for drizzling over a rich cake, or even for serving with berries.

Everyone who tastes this cream liqueur comes back for more and then asks for the recipe.

A few years ago, our friend Tony gifted us a bottle of this liqueur for Christmas. It smelled heavenly when I opened it and I could hardly wait to try it in my coffee the next day. I was hooked from the first sip.

I pestered Tony for the recipe and he was kind enough to send it over to me.

I gave a bottle of this cream liqueur to a friend a few years ago and she called me before I made it home from her house to ask exactly what the “heaven in a bottle” was.

I cracked up laughing and told her to try a splash of it in her coffee the next morning. She then laughed at me and said it was too late, they were sipping it for dessert already.

Best Coffee Creamer Ever

When I tell you that this is completely irresistible, it is. It’s basically the best coffee creamer in the world. You may find it impossible to resist anytime it is in the refrigerator.

Food Gifts

I’ve made this Italian Cream Liqueur repeatedly over the past few years and everyone I’ve shared it with has loved it. It’s a very popular food gift.

Along with a package of our favorite espresso for Cafe con Leche, or a jar of Homemade Chai Tea, who wouldn’t love having a jar of this delicious sweet creamer tucked away in the refrigerator to enjoy with their morning, afternoon, or evening cup of coffee?

Looking for more food gifts? This Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix and this Homemade Peppermint Bark are both big hits every Christmas.

    Hi Mary – Could I substitute a different liquor in place of the Frangelico? If so, what would you suggest? I’m not fond of “Almond flavor”. Thanks!

    • Mary Younkin says

      Frangelico is actually made with hazelnuts, so there isn’t an almond flavor there, Kathy. You can skip the almond extract in the recipe. I hope that helps!

    Hi there,
    How long would it keep for? Must you keep it in the fridge?
    Sounds delicious and I will try and make it:)
