Hot Hazelnut Rum Cocktail

A Hot Hazelnut Rum Cocktail is one of those simple pleasure cocktails that makes a cold day so much warmer. The warming spices mixed with hazelnut rum and lime create a tart and smooth cocktail you’ll love to wrap your hands around!

It’s the dead of winter here in Colorado. The snow storms come and go on a weekly basis, the temperatures can’t decide what they want to do and I have my little heater in my office running on overdrive so I can stay all warm and toasty as I try to catch up on millions of emails and proposals…

A week-long vacation is pretty freaking amazing, but boy oh boy does it make getting back into the swing of things sooooooo difficult. You know what I mean?

I have to tell you, warm cocktails in the winter are one of those things that always set me right. I know I know, this makes me sound like a total boozehound (which isn’t really that far from the truth… don’t judge), but the combination of the warmth of the drink and the warmth of spirit throw me into my happy place within the first sip.

A hot hazelnut rum cocktail has all of this happy place goodness right inside that lil’ mug.

For this particular cocktail, I used Rogue Spirits’ Hazelnut Spice Rum. Normally I am not a huge fan of flavored spirits because they tend to be way too sweet, but this hazelnut spice rum is right on the money. The flavor is just enough to accentuate the rum without being cloyingly sweet or overpowering. That’s why you want to use it in this incredibly simple cocktail. The hint of warming spices and the lime simply enhance the flavor of the rum, so you can really enjoy the spirit itself.

Because you all know it’s the little things in life that matter, after all. Am I right?

Disclosure: I received free product from Rogue Spirits as part of this post. As always, all opinions and recipe are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Cake ‘n Knife!

20 ways to love Frangelico, the hazelnut liqueur we’re obsessed with

We have a little obsession here around the SheKnows offices, and it’s over a liqueur that’s gone overlooked for way too long. Remember that funny monk-shaped bottle in your grandma’s liquor cabinet? It’s Frangelico liqueur, and it’s hazelnut flavored, and it’s our favorite.

We jokingly call it “Grandma’s medicine” because that’s what our hypothetical grandma would have called it. But seriously? It’s so retro, it’s cool. Here’s just a few of the many ways you could work some hazelnut magic into your holiday drinks and eats.

1. With club soda on ice. This is our mix of choice in the office.

2. With tequila. Sweet Frangelico pairs beautifully with tequila or a smoky mezcal. Try a simple mix of 3 parts tequila with 1 part Frangelico, or check out these hazelnut-infused recipes.

3. With whiskey. The liqueur’s sweetness also makes it a good match for whiskey. I’ve been adding 1/2 an ounce to 1-1/2 ounces of rye in a Sambuca-rinsed glass for a twist on the Sazerac.

4. In your coffee. A bit of Frangelico with some cream and you’ll forget all about Bailey’s.

5. With sparkling wine. The monk makes a nice Champagne cocktail. Add a squeeze of lemon to balance the sweetness.

6. Better than sex. That’s the name of this concoction made with cream, Kahlúa and Grand Mariner.

7. Butter pecan. Mix with vanilla ice cream and pecans, and you’ve got one hell of a boozy, nutty milkshake.

8. Hazelnut martini. All you need is some vodka. We recommend rimming the glass with cocoa powder and crushed hazelnuts.

9. Three-layer chocolate cake. This is basically drinkable Nutella in a shot glass. You’re welcome.

10. Absolut Marocchini martini. Vodka, chocolate bitters and coffee for a hazelnut mocha-flavored martini.

11. Frangelico cider. Shake with whiskey and apple cider, add a dash of bitters.

12. Hot nun. Why should the monk have all the fun? Combine with honey, cloves, lemon peel and hot water and tell everyone you’re having your special “tea.”

14. Reindeer tracks. Chocolate vodka, Frangelico, créme de cacao, cream and crushed Oreo cookies? If you insist.

15. M&M’s cocktail. Combine Frangelico just with créme de cacao in a shot glass and it’s supposed to taste just like M&M’s candy. I think we’d better try this one out here at the office right away.

17. Sunset sour. Bourbon with Frangelico, lemon juice and egg whites &mdash yes to this, though we would skip the original recipe’s simple syrup.

18. Frangelico mudslide. This boozy, chocolaty milkshake is as decadent as it gets. Did we mention it includes Nutella?

19. Eggnog martini. You knew this was coming &mdash of course Frangelico is perfect with eggnog.

20. Neat. Before you try any of these recipes, take a sip or two of Frangelico on its own. That will give you an idea of how you think you’ll like yours. Also, it’s fun.

Hazelnut Bourbon Sour with an Isla Twist

To be honest this cocktail might be the result of my slight obsession with hazelnut – I mean, Nutella and crepes? Hazelnut snickers? And have you tried Frangelico on ice cream yet? Let me stop here, before I get too sidetracked…

Lets get back to Frangelico – I seem to get the feeling that beyond dessert drinks, people rarely consider the dusty old monk shaped bottle as a legitimate cocktail liqueur. I think by now it is pretty clear that I personally have always enjoyed Frangelico – it is great by itself on the rocks, in cocktails, or as dessert booster. But I always like to experiment and this time, Mikey and I wanted to get away from the “dessert drink” genre and create a classy hazelnut cocktail that is more than just an after dinner treat. So let’s dust off that Frangelico bottle your grandpa left behind and let’s take a walk on Bourbon Street.

The Italian-American is a creative Bourbon Sour spin off, featuring some of our favorite ingredients, and I am not exaggerating when I say that this cocktail has it all – a sweet kick from Frangelico, a hint of spiciness from the Peychaud’s bitters, all wrapped in a Kentucky hug of Bourbon.

This is one of the more complex cocktails we have introduced to you so far. Once you take a sip, you will be able to detect so many different distinct tastes, aftertastes, and aromas. Oh, and best of all, we finished this cocktail off with a smoky Isla Scotch mist, but we will label that as optional, seeing as not everyone has the same level of enthusiasm as I do for Scotch.

3 Cocktails to Make With Frangelico

If you don&apost know Frangelico as a hazelnut liqueur, odds are you know it as "that weird-ass bottle that kinda looks like a monk." Though it was only released in the &apos80s, the Italian-made liqueur has one of those elaborate backstories: monks in the Piedmont region had been making something similar to Frangelico for centuries, inspiring its particular blend of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa flavors.

Regardless of the true origin, Frangelico can be fun to experiment with in cocktails. Like many nutty, low-proof liqueurs, it&aposs quite sweet𠅋ut when you balance it out with more potent spirits, the sugar gets tempered a bit, and its pleasant hazelnut flavors come out. These drinks will taste a bit dessert-y, but it&aposs a still-plenty-boozy sort of dessert.

Easy: Frangelico & Cider

Nuts and apples are a classic flavor pairing, and this cocktail combines fresh apple cider with nutty Frangelico and plenty of American whiskey to amp it up. This is how we like our Frangelico: as a pleasant hazelnut background, not an overwhelming sweet liqueur hit.

Instructions: In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine 2 ounces of Jack Daniel&aposs, 3 ounces of apple cider, 3/4 ounce Frangelico and 1/4 ounce of honey syrup (equal parts honey and hot water). Add a dash of Angostura bitters. Shake that all up and strain into a tall glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a large cinnamon stick.

Intermediate: Frangelico Sour

Like its cousin the Amaretto Sour, a Frangelico Sour can be quite tasty if made right. What this means is that you should always use fresh lemon juice and sugar instead of sour mix. You should also add an egg white, which gives a classic sour its light, airy texture. We also chose to cut Frangelico with bourbon, so you can still appreciate those hazelnut flavors without them taking over.

Instructions: In a cocktail shaker without ice, combine 1 ounce of bourbon, 1 ounce of Frangelico, 3/4 ounce lemon juice, 3/4 ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and hot water) and a dash of Angostura. Add one egg white. Shake all that up hard without ice—this is called a "dry shake"𠅊nd then add ice and shake again (the "wet shake”). Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel and brandied cherries.

Advanced: Irish Hazelnut Cream

Most creamy dessert drinks are sweet to the point that you can barely make it through even one. That’s why for our creamy drink we’re going with zero added sugar. The Irish whiskey, Frangelico and whipped cream make a pleasantly creamy drink that doesn’t in any way resemble a Frappuccino.

Instructions: Combine 2 ounces of Irish whiskey (like Jameson Black Barrel) and 1 ounce of Frangelico in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Pour into a cocktail glass.

Now, we&aposre going to make a loose whipped cream—less stiff and form-holding than the texture of a fully whipped cream, the kind you&aposd top dessert with. You can do this with a whisk or a hand beater, or try this nifty bartender trick: If you&aposve got a Hawthorne strainer—the kind you use to strain cocktails, with a spring around the edge—take out that big spring. Drop it into a cocktail shaker. Add an ounce of heavy cream, and then shake all that up hard. The spring will help "whip" the cream to just the texture you want (watch expert mixologist Jim Meehan’s tutorial here).

Once you&aposve got whipped cream, carefully float it over the top of your cocktail. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg.


In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour the vodka, hazelnut liqueur, and simple syrup.

Choose Your Vodka

As with most vodka martinis, the vodka you choose is going to have a big impact on the taste of your nutty martini. Even though Frangelico has a heavier flavor, it will not cover up a vodka's impurities. Your best bet is to save the cheaper vodkas for drinks like the white Russian and pour the good stuff into this cocktail.

The great news is that even top-shelf vodka remains relatively affordable and there are many fantastic brands to explore. Consider popular brands like Chopin or Ketel One for reliable, easy-to-find options that will make nearly any martini you want to mix up taste great.

You can also use this recipe to test out American-made craft vodkas like the potato-based Blue Ice, Zodiac, or Cold River, or Washington's Dry Fly wheat. Each vodka will give the drink its own unique twist and leave you rethinking the spirit's "flavorless" reputation.

How Strong Is a Nutty Martini?

The majority of martinis are very strong drinks, a fact that their fancy presentation often hides. This recipe is no exception and you can expect your nutty martini's alcohol content to fall somewhere around 29 percent ABV (58 proof).

Recipe Variations

For an authentic nutty martini, Frangelico is the brand of choice. It is one of the essential spirits for a well-stocked bar and is arguably the best hazelnut liqueur available. However, it's not your only option and a bottle can be a little pricey.


Great twist on a classic - the use of bitters is inspired.
