of being a lush, and sugar cube lust

So, I miss Irish cream liqueur. A lot. And after much browsing, this recipe is the only one I can find that doesn't include eggs. The milk chocolate I can work around, but I'm a little unsure as to what could replace the sweetened and evaporated milks and the heavy cream. Silk coffee creamer, Hip Whip (which I've tried and enjoy ^_^), or perhaps this soy-based condensed milk recipe? I know my favorite whiskey is vegan, and that Kahlua is as well. Can Kahlua be used to make Irish cream liqueur, or are they too different?

Also: I was helping a friend set up for a tea demonstration the other day and was putting sugar cubes in a little dish when, as veg*ns are wont to do, I started reading the packaging. I believe it was C&H brand sugar, and they made it very clear that they only use cane sugar (nonvegan, of course) and basically talked crap about beet sugar (generally vegan). What's so wrong with beet sugar? And though I never use them, I'm kind of a sucker for the cute tidyness of sugar cubes. Do they make a vegan version of these--beet sugar, natural sugar, etc?

(As usual, sorry if any of this is in the memories and I missed it..)
