Meal type Beverage
Adding coffee to the thick, rich liqueur balances this drink out so it’s not overwhelmingly heavy. The aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel grace your senses with the the first sip. Sweet chocolate comes to the forefront when paired with the caramel sauce that has a hint of salt to develop the complex, buttery goodness of the caramel as it slowly drips down the glass to encase your fingers.


  • 4fl oz freshly brewed coffee
  • 4fl oz chocolate liqueur
  • 1 handful ice
  • Salted caramel sauce (for rimming (I used Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel))
  • Pecans (for garnish)


Step 1
Brew the coffee and set aside in the fridge to cool.
Step 2
Measure out the chocolate liqueur.
Step 3
Rim the martini glasses with caramel and garnish with a pecan.
Step 4
In a cocktail shaker, combine the coffee, ice and liqueur and shake vigorously. (This is where I had to get creative. We aren’t big hard liquor drinkers here, so there wasn’t a cocktail shaker in sight. Instead, I combined all the ingredients in a water bottle, shook vigorously and poured into the individual martini glasses through the top. Worked like a charm!)
Step 5
Strain (or pour through the water bottle cap) the shaken mix into individual martini glasses.
Step 6
Sip and enjoy bliss.
