This delicious cocktail is all things Irish, and the addition of hazelnut flavours grants it its fun and crazy name. Fans of chocolate-y cocktails will delight at this sweet concoction that delights the senses with its intermingling flavours of Irish Cream and Hazelnut-based Frangelico. This tasty drink can easily be considered a dessert in a glass.
Although it can be made in a number of different ways, depending on preferred flavours and addition of more liqueurs or sweeteners, these two ingredients are a must in the Nutty Irishman. Some prefer to add a kick of Irish Whiskey to the mix to strengthen it further, while others may enjoy adding coffee to balance the flavours and enjoy a creamy sweet drink. It is a delicious drink either way, and can be easily mixed by everyone.
It is a drink for everyone, and for every occasion; whether you’re in the mood to enjoy a couple rounds of layered party shots, or want to sit back and relax with a smooth and creamy sipper, it works equally well both ways. Where some find comfort in its sweet flavours, others are put in the mood to party all night after one of two of these drinks. However one chooses to enjoy it, it can’t be argued that the Nutty Irishman is a beloved cocktail by most.
