Frangelico Cream Martini

More and more people are dining and entertaining at home, and this makes a great alternative to a traditional Irish coffee drink that you would serve after dinner, and is ideal for the holiday season.

Essentially, it is a mix of Frangelico liqueur and Kahlua, topped with double cream, then served in a martini glass for a touch of elegance. If you have not tried Frangelico before, it is an Italian hazelnut liqueur which pairs really well with coffee, or coffee flavors.

This drink is one of the signature cocktails that can be found at the Cosmos Bar/Restaurant located on the ground floor of the Deste Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art in Athens, and is featured in the book Signature Cocktails by Bill Tikos.

  • 1 fl ounce Frangelico Liqueur
  • 1/2 fl ounce Kahlua
  • 1 fl ounce Double Cream
  1. Mix the Frangelico and Kahlua in a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake well.
  2. Pour into a martini glass.
  3. Top with double cream.
