Essential Liquor #24

#24) Frangelico - Here Joe is looking at a $20 or so bottle of liqueur. But, hey, coffee has been very popular through the 1990s-2000s, especially with women and few liqueurs love coffee like Frangelico.
It's true that DeKuyper makes a hazelnut liqueur that is passable, but Frangelico, since it has that "monk" heritage, is also an herbal. In addition, visually it's had to beat the monk and tassel presentation of the bottle. Those new to the liqueur scene are inevitably drawn to the visual and stay for the taste.

An '80s drink for you this week, and one that looks to have a revival given the popularity of the Big Lebowski.


2 ounces coffee liqueur
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce Frangelico
2 ounces half and half

Build in the order presented. Stir gently.
