Pick your Poison: Alcoholic Iced Caramel Latte

Pick your Poison: Alcoholic Iced Caramel Latte

“Today, I will nail this parenting malarkey and be the best Mum ever…but first, I need Coffee. And Alcohol”

This iced coffee is probably my favourite tipple at the moment. Probably.

It’s just as good minus the alcohol so if you fancy an iced caramel coffee, once the Great British Summer decides to arrive, this would be a fab recipe to use.

Your caffine and alcohol fix in one shebang, think espresso martini, but not quite as potent.

The energy and staying power of a toddler will have nothing on you once you’ve had one of these bad boys!


Ingredients

1 shot of strong espresso coffee (left to cool for 20 minutes)

25ml Kahlua

25ml Baileys (or Triibe Liquer)

150ml Cold Milk

15ml Caramel Coffee Syrup (I used Tate and Lyle)

Squirty cream (for decoration)

Caramel Sauce (for decoration)

Crushed Ice (preferable, but not essential – cubes will also do)


Method

  1. In a cocktail shaker, place the cooled coffee, Kahlua, Baileys, caramel syrup and crushed ice.
  2. Place the lid on the shaker and shake well.
  3. Remove the lid from the shaker and add the milk.
  4. This time, stir the ingredients together with a long spoon/muddler.
  5. Pour into a tall glass.
  6. Top with squirty cream and caramel sauce…and a straw!

Slurp!

Reese’s Peanut and Chocolate Milkshake Cocktail

IMG_9862

“What do you get if you put a cow on top of a washing machine during a spin cycle? “

“Milkshake!”

(My 8 year old told me to write that one…hilarious eh?! Ahem).

This milkshake cocktail is super naughty, super rich, and almost like a dessert in it’s own right.

If you love Reese’s peanut butter cups, you’re going to LOVE this. Think liquified Reese’s cups or snickers and you’re about there.

Peanuts, chocolate, Vodka, Baileys…all shaken up and ready to bring those boys (or girls!) to your yard!


Ingredients

2 heaped tablespoons Reese’s Chocolate and Peanut Spread

150ml cold milk

25ml Vodka

25ml Baileys (or Triibe Liqueur)

25ml Kahlua

2 Mini Reese’s cups on a cocktail stick to decorate

Ice to serve


Method

  1. In a blender, add the Reese’s chocolate and peanut spread, milk, vodka, Baileys and Kahlua.
  2. Place the lid on the blender and turn on.
  3. Whizz well for 40 seconds.
  4. Place ice in a glass and pour the cocktail over the ice.
  5. Decorate with 2 mini Reese’s cups on a cocktail stick.

Get stuck in!
