The Drunken Monk

LanguedocLiving, Sep 11

After last week’s recipe for some homemade Frangelico, now for some delicious cocktails using Frangelico.

The Drunken Monk

Ingredients:

1 part Frangelico
½ part triple sec
2 parts lime juice
1 dash pineapple juice

Method:

Pour the Frangelico, triple sec, lime juice and pineapple juice into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well, strain into a highball glass, and serve.

Frangelico Martini

This is more a lesson on how to make a good martini. Made from Frangelico rather than vodka or gin, it makes a delicious well-rounded cocktail.  This recipe makes 2 small martinis.

Ingredients:

Ice
4 parts Frangelico
A twist of lemon
1 coffee bean (optional)

Method:

Prepare your glasses by putting some ice cubes in to cool them down, or put them in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Put 4 measures of Frangelico into a cocktail shaker, and 3 ice cubes. Shake well for a good minute.

Remove the ice from your glasses, and pour out the Frangelico. Add the twist of lemon, the coffee bean, and serve.

Frangelico on the rocks with lime

Ingredients:

1 part Frangelico
Juice of half a lime
Ice

Method:

Pour the Frangelico over ice into the glass, and squeeze in a generous amount of lime. Stir and serve.

Frangelico hazelnut coffee

This recipe is more like a dessert, but it is too delicious not to include.

Ingredients:

1 part Frangelico
1 cup of coffee
Whipped cream
Chocolate flakes

Method

Stir Frangelico into your favourite hot coffee. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate flakes.

This recipe is also very nice cold, like an iced coffee.
