Donatello - the Cloud Nine Coffee

I feel like he enjoys caffeine… a lot of it, so naturally this cocktail came to mind.

1 Oz Irish whiskey
½ Oz hazelnut liqueur
½ Oz chocolate liqueur (some people prefer chocolate syrup as an alternative)
1 cup coffee
Whipped topping (optional)

This drink can be made with either black coffee or coffee with cream. To avoid curdling, ensure to use something heavier (no half and half or milk). Mix liqueurs, coffee, and whiskey. Add topping if desired. You can even put cinnamon or chocolate shavings on this dreamy cup of heaven, if you so desire.

A pretty basic, quick to make drink. Also you have the option of making it hot or cold. I prefer hot for this recipe, but to each their own. I can’t see Donnie really enjoying a hard liquor taste, and that’s why I went with something a little sweeter for him. 💜💜💜

Enjoy!

Improved Whiskey Cocktail

2 oz rye whiskey, 0.25 oz Maraschino liqueur, 0.25 oz simple syrup, 2 dashes Angostura Bitters, stir and strain over one large ice cube in an absinthe-rinsed rocks glass, garnish with lemon twist, adapted from The PDT Cocktail Book.

I love this one!  The recipe is from 1876 and I don’t think it needs any more improvements.  Rye whiskey, absinthe rinse…what’s not to love?  BG is less enthusiastic because he is suspicious of any cocktail with simple syrup in it.  Usually I agree, but I don’t find this to be too sweet.

Cheers!
