The Recipe How-To

“Take a sip and awaken your senses with this rich and flavorful drink ☕️”

Brewing the Coffee

Before making any coffee cocktail, start by brewing a strong cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon of instant espresso powder (or double-shot espresso) and 1 cup of water in your favorite coffee maker. I recommend using a dark-roasted bean like Mountain Java for a rich and robust flavor.

Mixing the Ingredients

In a blender, combine 2 ounces of the brewed coffee, 2 ounces of almond milk, 1 ounce each of Amaretto liqueur and coffee liqueur. Also add 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup and 1/4 cup of White Chocolate Almond Breeze. Blend well until all ingredients are combined and frothy.

Making it Creamy

For an extra creamy texture, add another 1/3 cup of half-and-half creamer. You can also substitute it for Irish cream or even Whipped Cream Vodka for a more boozy kick!


After blending, pour the mixture into a glass filled with ice cubes. Top with whipped cream, toasted almonds or even chocolate-covered almonds for some extra oomph! Drizzle some chocolate sauce on top to make it even more indulgent.

BEWARE: This recipe is addictive and will make your taste buds jump for joy!
