We love vodka. And we love coffee. Which is why we love cocktails that combine the two, just like the Espresso Martini. In this Iced Hazelnut Coffee Cocktail, we’ve once again combined coffee and vodka for a delicious drink that’s good day or night.
For this iced hazelnut coffee cocktail, I started out with my favorite Double Chocolate Vodka. Because chocolate vodka is always a good thing. It’s the same vodka that we have used in the Chocolate Raspberry Cocktail and the Chocolate Mint Cocktail.
Instead of using hazelnut coffee, I decided to use Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur. It has a nice hazelnut vanilla flavor that’s the perfect match for coffee. And vodka.
And for the coffee… Use whatever you normally like to drink. If you use something flavored, it will change the taste of your iced hazelnut coffee cocktail. So, keep that in mind before you brew.
It’s also good if you add a little bit of chocolate powder to the rim or the top of the drink. Just like sprinkling it on your latte at Starbucks, except it’s not a latte. And it’s not from Starbucks. And it has booze in it.
Iced Hazelnut Coffee Cocktail
3 ounces fresh brewed coffee
2 ounces 360 Double Chocolate Vodka
1 ounce Frangelico
1 ounce half and half
Optional: Chocolate powder for rimming glass or sprinkling on top of the drink
Optional, rim glass with vodka and then dip in chocolate powder.
Pour fresh brewed coffee, vodka, Frangelico, and half and half into a rocks glass.
Add ice and stir.
You can also dust some chocolate powder on the top of your cocktail.
Sip on the back patio with your favorite muffin or scone and the newspaper (or your laptop).
Makes one cocktail.
