Hazelnut, Irish Cream, whiskey, and coffee – what a wonderful combination, ready made for beating the chill of winter! We are getting into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit a little early with the Queen’s take on a classic cocktail – The Nutty Irishman. Enjoy!
My current favorite flavored coffee to experiment with is Maui Madness. The combination of coconut, banana, and hazelnut lends itself extraordinarily well to many cocktails. Today’s libation combines the luscious hazelnut of Frangelico and the almond bite of Amaretto with sweet cinnamon and cream. Maui madness coffee elevates the flavors to the next level! The result is a tasty treat that just might have you screaming “Off with her head!” if denied a second! Enjoy!
Galliano the most popular liqueur of the 1970s, is composed of sweet vanilla and anisette upper notes and citrusy, woodsy/juniper undertones.

I am revisiting our textured, earthy friend Galliano by combining it with espresso, cream, and chocolate liqueur. The result is an unusual and flavorful cocktail. Enjoy!

“It was a dark and stormy night”
– Washington Irving
While this much-used phrase is often referred to as clichéd, the cocktail carrying its name is far from hackneyed! This beautiful drink is similar to a traditional Dark & Stormy. My version, of course, puts a twist on the classic by incorporating coffee. Enjoy!
