Last month I got married and one of our gifts was a nespresso espresso maker. Quite honestly, one of the best money saving items in the house. I can make hot and fresh mochas, lattes and espresso shots for the fraction of the cost. Plus, it actually makes them right so they taste good. After a few mochas, I decided to make a few mocha cocktails. A few experiments later and I have the ratio down.
Hot Spiked Mocha Cocktail
- 1 shot espresso
- 1 shot Vodka
- 1 shot Kahlua Coffee Liquor
- 1/2 cup steamed milk
- 1 tbs chocolate syrup
- Whipped cream and cocoa powder for garnish
In a coffee mug add the chocolate syrup, vodka and Kahlua.
Stir in the hot shot of espresso.
Add the steamed milk and a tad bit of foam at the end. Lightly stir.
Top with the whipped cream and cocoa powder and serve. This is a nice cocktail that will warm the darkest of hearts in the middle of winter. A perfect cocktail for brunch or even after a hard day on slopes.
The perfect cocktail!
On a side note. If you do not have your own espresso machine, head on down to your favorite coffee shop and order a small/tall mocha and then add the vodka and Kahlua to it.
