Creamy and nutty, the Nutty Irishman cocktail is a warm, festive after-dinner coffee drink. So easy to make and amazingly delectable, you may be tempted to start your day with this fabulous libation.
Sooooo….remember the Nutty Irishman Cupcakes from last week? Well, some of you had never heard of their very enticing, very tempting cocktail inspiration. And being the problem solver that I am….I decided to share my version with you. My newly created version, as far as cocktails go. I don’t make a ton of cocktails, actually…I’m more of a wine bottle cork popper. Sometimes I’ll make something I’ve had at a restaurant….like the most amazing Chocolate Martini on the planet….but for the most part I stick to the vino. It’s easy, there’s no mixing of the vino…pour and go. That’s about my speed.
The Nutty Irishman is a cocktail that’s been spiked pretty heavily with Kahlua, Bailey’s and Frangelico. It’s pretty sweet on it’s own so I don’t add sugar but you can if you really want it to be super, tooth-achingly sweet. That’s cool…it’s like dessert so it’s totally acceptable. I like to top mine with a mountain of whipped cream and some festive sprinkles, just to be…you know…festive. And then it’s really like dessert. Unless you’re making this for breakfast, which is alright with me…I don’t judge.
The problem with this tasty beverage is it’s so easy to make. You may be tempted to whip one up on a whim, like first thing in the morning….nobody would even know your secret. You could be a closet drinker before the workday begins. Which could be a lot of fun. Actually…I think my old cubicle mates would have been a lot more fun had we all started our day with The Nutty Irishman. Not that they weren’t fun already but add in a little alcohol….they know who they are. Hey, friends…why not try it out today and let me know how it goes. 🙂
