Nutty Irishman

Day 343



Nutty Irishman
3.5 shots out of 5


We finally tonight, just watched a Christmas movie I had recorded in December.  Now it's time for the girls to go to bed while I blog my cocktail.  Then my husband, the boys and I will sit down and watch American Idol and try our hardest (it won't be easy), not to be annoyed with Nicki Minaj's commentary and constant pot stirring as she "judges" .

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I have to say that the Frangelico in this shooter overpowers the Baileys, which I honestly do not like.  I wish that the two tastes were equal, but that is the way this shooter is made so I have to make and try it that way.  I think I will amend this shooter in the future and rename it.......so stay tuned!  That all being said, it's not a horrible shooter, especially for those of you who enjoy Frangelico I think you will really like this one.  Hope you are all enjoying your week, two days left of school for the kids and then it's another "sport-less" weekend!!

Here is the recipe for a Nutty Irishman:

  • 3/4 oz Baileys
  • 3/4 oz Frangelico
In a shot glass, pour in your two ingredients and give it a good stir.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to all of the Nutty Irishmen out there!

  1. This drink is great if you add a dash of black label on top. I called it Memphis Belle.

  2. I've heard of this before and I knew I'd tried it but couldn't remember the results. I made it slightly larger proportions than you list, shook it over ice first, and just sipped it rather than shooting it. I did like it - I like Frangelico - but boy, it was sweet. Sometimes sweet is good, but that was apparently not what I was in the mood for tonight. Time to find something else!
