The Abbot's Dream - 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 the well known Irish Cream plus of course, Bananas... with hints of Hazelnut!  Really, what's not to love.

For my Super Bowl party this year I wanted 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, by 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.

It also has an advantage.  You can add Milk to the drink in order to "weaken" the drink.  Occasionally, some of my friends would like to "milk" a drink.  Adding something non alcoholic in order to appear to drink with the crowd without that nasty drunk drinking risk
Wildly popular, a big hit!

Only requires a three bottles of booze, makes this affordable for a home bar.  The Creme de Banana and Baileys 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!

  OK, Here's What I Did...
