Hello all you sugar lovers out there! This week I decided to take a recipe for Hazelnut Cappuccino Cupcakes that I featured a few weeks back and pull it apart and put it into something new and epic: adult beverages. Yep, that’s right, we’re goin’ there! Because who can honestly say that a Baileys Coffee Cake (B.C.C.) martini doesn’t sound good?!
This recipe is simple, delicious, and still gives you the kick of sugar and caffeine you were looking for. Just start by grabbing some Baileys Hazelnut Irish Cream, any kind of Cake flavored vodka (I used Smirnoff), iced coffee, and a shaker full o’ ice.
Next just measure 2 oz. of Baileys, 2 oz of the iced coffee, and .5 oz. of the Vodka into the shaker. Close the lid and shake to your hearts content!
Once shaken, strain into a glass of your choosing and voila! Bingo bango drinko! You have now recreated a cupcake in a glass of hazelnutty goodness! See, wasn’t that simple?
The link to the original drink recipe that I toyed with can be found at TheBar.com which provides a plethora, nay, a cornucopia of useful drink making tips and recipes.
Always remember to drink responsibly, and most of all, as Ron Burgundy once said, stay classy.
Oh My Ganache
