The Chocolate Monk - Let's have a Shot

Pin It Now!

 OH BOY... Let's have a Shot!!!

But not just any Shot, this drink has the flavors of Chocolate Coffee, with hints of Hazelnut!  Really, what's not to love.

I am in the midst of getting ready for my annual Super Bowl party.  This year I want to add a couple of "Let's do Shots" Games, but I want to avoid the messy ugly shots of tequila or whiskey that normally goes with that phrase.  OK... Truth be Told, I am after drinks that the ladies will want to drink.

And by gosh, bu golly, this is more than one.  Simply delicious, dangerously so since you can not taste the booze at all.  Very much chocolate flavored, with enough hints of the other two liqueurs to make this special.

Only requires a three bottles of booze, makes this affordable for a home bar.  The Baileys and Kahlua belong in every home bar anyway, you may have a half a bottle of each already.  The Frangelico, the hazelnut flavor has such a pretty bottle you may want to keep that in your regular home bar as well.  Booze really does not spoil, so buy a bottle every now and then and in no time, you have a stocked bar.

Cheers and go team!  Keep scrolling down for this easy to follow recipe...

But first, here's spmething fun to add to my want list... Mason Jar Shot Glasses...

 OK, Here's What I Did...

The Chocolate Monk

  • 1 package (about 3) Oreos, Crushed to dust
  • 1/2 ounce Baileys
  • 1/2 Ounce Frangelico
  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua 
Mixing Directions
  1. These are best chilled... Either have frosted shot glasses ready from the freezer or stash the bottles in the fridge until ready to mix.
  2. Start with the Kahlua, it will settle to the bottom
  3. Add Baileys
  4. Add the Frangelico
  5. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes and you will see the separation of the Baileys and the other two.  Or start sipping
  6. Serve Chilled and ENJOY!
And coming soon, recipes for two more drinks, The Abbot's Dream and the Bananas in Paradise that use almost the same liqueurs. making bartending at home affordable.
