I don't think it would mix right. There's a special procedure that it
used to get the cream and Guinness (I'm pretty sure it's Guinness) to
stay together. I don't know if they homogenize (sp) it or what. Anyway,
you'd probably get Bailey's w/ less cream and more Guinness.
Interesting side note: Bailey's first originated because of an
over-abundance of cream from the dairy farms of Ireland. An enterprising
farmer decided to see what would happen if he mixed the cream w/ a highly
popular Irish export, Guinness (like I said, I think it's Guinness).
Anyway, thus became Bailey's (the last name of the family that started
it). Oh yeah, in case you're wondering, I learned all of this from the
"Today Show" when it was broadcasting from Ireland <g>.
