Noooooo! It's 15 (fifteen). Cat hairs under the keys I think - well spotted.

The fruits don't take long unless you're making a couple of dozen and it's quite fun to do.

Sounds lovely. Have got out the cranberry and orange recipe from last year Lady A as it was delicious.

Now then! Here's a recipe I came across, and just had to try it. Irish Cream Liqueur. Like Baileys. With a couple of minor adjustments, it turned out really well. And, it keeps, in the fridge, for around six months! Christmas gifts sorted!

1 tablespoon instant coffee dissolved in 1 tablespoon boiling water (Note: I used "barista style" instant espresso, which has bits of ground coffee bean in, and then just sieved the result through a cloth.)
1 1/2 tablespoons chocolate topping (I used Askeys "Treat" topping)
350ml Irish whiskey
460ml cream
397g can of sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon coconut essence or vanilla extract

Sterilise everything you use to make this. I use Milton tablets.
Stir the chocolate topping into the coffee/water mixture. Whisk in the remaining ingredients. Strain through a fine sieve into sterilised bottles and seal immediately.

If you churn this in an ice-cream maker, it sounds as though it'll make a gorgeous icecream!

I wondered about that, but would the whiskey prevent it freezing?

It should just stop it from freezing too hard. If it comes out too hard, it's an excuse to add more whisky the next time...
