I like my coffee how I like my coffee, with half and half. I’d rather drink my coffee black than put sugar in it. A good latte is a little slice of heaven but I despise cafe mochas. Why ruin a perfectly good cup of hot chocolate with coffee, moreover, why ruin espresso by adding chocolate to it. Yes, I have rules about my coffee and rarely do I move out of my lane. That being said, I love a good coffee cocktail.
I made this frappe one night when I was craving something cold and sweet. It was also a Friday night, so I threw in some whiskey. I’m pretty sure I sucked this it down quicker than a speeding ticket because — BRAIN FREEZE. I really wish I was one of those people who slowly savored their food. I’m not, in fact when it’s good I woof it down. I really need to work on that.
I think this drink would also make an awesome brunch cocktail. So if you’re hosting a bunch, skip the mimosas and make this bourbon chocolate frappe. Or better yet, make them both.
