Afternoon Coffee

"A lovely nightcap from drinkswap, you'll sleep like a baby after this. Recipe calls for only 1 tsp of cream but feel free to increase that if you like a milky coffee. I added a lot more than 1tsp myself."

    Delicious coffee drink. I only had mint Bailey's which I knew wouldn't work, so I replaced it with 2tsp of half-n-half. (2tsp = 10 ml for those of you who are metric-ly challenged like me) I don't really like "boozy" which is how another reviewer described this drink, so that replacement is probably what made this drink great for me.

    Wowsers, this is delicious! I'm sure that I'm going to have a very happy afternoon now. The rich espresso and the lovely hooch mix is just what the Dr. ordered. Since I can't float a layer of anything in a drink I topped mine with whipped cream and ground hazelnuts. The flavor blend in this is heavenly, Try it, you will not be disappointed :D.

    When I made it, my espresso had turned cold. It was delicious. I drank it without the cream. Thanks Mandy. Made for Beverage tag.

    WOW!! A bountiful and boozy number! I made this with a generic Almond liqueur, as I did not have Frangelico and then every thing else was as posted.........I had been suffering from a head cold and this was JUST what the doctor ordered! I sprinkled cocoa on top for a special extra.......great BOOZY coffee recipe thanks Mandy! Made for Photo Forum Coffee Topic for March. FT:-)


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
