After enjoying a frothy dessert cocktail on Valentine's Day, I decided to try another recipe, this one with a St. Patty's theme. It combines vanilla vodka with coffee and chocolate liqueur to create a decadent liquid dessert. My favorite part is the frothy whipped cream that gets poured into the mixture at the last minute — it reminds me of the thick cream that sits atop a classic Irish coffee. Although you really can't have more than one of this potent drink, it's a delightful treat worth making. Get the recipe after the jump.
1 part vanilla vodka (recommended: Svedka Vanilla)
1 part coffee liqueur
1 part chocolate liqueur
3 tsp sugar
2 parts heavy cream
Chocolate flakes, optional for garnish
