The confusing thing about the Nutcracker cocktail is there are a lot of very different drinks that are categorized by this name online. In most cases it may be because it is a very common name, so several people may be inventing a cocktail and picking this name without checking to find out whether it is already in use or not.

However one thing all of these recipes are bound to have in common is sweetness. How can a drink named after a seasonal sounding word such as the Nutcracker be anything but sweet? This sweet and creamy cocktail is a delicious blend of caramel, orange, almond and coffee flavours. The candy-like sweet notes of this drink are sure to put anyone in the Christmas Spirt after one or two servings.

The overall flavour profile of the drink is very sweet, with the taste of coffee being dominant, and strong hints of orange and caramel on the edge of each sip. It is hard to pair this candy sweet cocktail with a meal, but your best bet is to go with salty snacks such as a pretzel, dry roasted peanuts, or a cheesecake without any sauce on top.

This cocktail promises to conjure up the holiday spirit and its sweet and creamy nature make it a fun grown-up Christmas drink that adults are sure to fall in love with and reach for again and again over the winter holidays. Although there are many recipes available for this famous cocktail online, this is one of the oldest and most traditional ones, incorporating the four major liqueurs which give this drink its candy-sweet characteristic taste.

Here is a recipe for this Christmassy cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • 30 ml Kahlua
  • 30 ml Amaretto
  • 15 ml Grand Marnier
  • 15 ml Bailey’s Irish cream

Preparation:

  1. Add all the ingredients to an old fashioned glass
  2. Stir briskly to mix and serve

Equipment:

  • Old Fashioned cocktail glass
  • Bar spoon
