On the recommendation of a co-worker I picked up a bottle of Frangelico this weekend. Frangelico is a hazelnut liquor with a sweet nutty flavor. She enjoyed it in a small glass of almond milk. That sounded delicious but I was looking for something with a little more oomph in it. Something that is more than the equivalent of chocolate milk for adults.
- 1 oz. hazelnut liquor (Frangelico)
- 1/2 oz. almond liquor (Disaronno)
- 1/2 oz. Irish Cream (Baileys)
Combine ingredients into a shaker filled with cracked ice. Shake well. Pour over 1/3 filled rocks glass.
This cocktail is basically candy. Nutty, sweet, creamy, delicious candy. Perfect for sipping on a warm night in the Summer. It probably has less calories than a bowl of ice cream too! It’s a shame the name for this drink is so terrible. I can’t imagine ordering this in a bar.
I look forward to trying out other drinks with Frangelico in them. Though its could enough to drink by itself. It’d make a wonderful digestif!
