Nutty Irishman

The “nutty” in the Nutty Irishman refers to hazelnut liqueur, which you might think is some super obscure ingredient, but you can usually find a bottle of the most famous brand—Frangelico—in your local liquor store. Its sweetness and subtle nuttiness  is the perfect partner to rich Irish cream. But if you can’t find it, opt for some other nut-flavored liqueur like amaretto. 

We made this drunk extra “nutty” by adding a homemade Irish cream whipped cream and a sprinkling of crushed hazelnut. The almost inevitable whipped cream mustache that follows is highly worth it.
