Creamy Nutella Martini

Irish cream and Frangelico are two of my favorites. They’re a match made in creamy martini heaven.

And things only get better when Nutella is involved.

Combining Irish Cream with Frangelico is a natural pairing. Frangelico is a liqueur made with toasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla extract.

Those are some of my favorite flavors and ingredients, and Frangelico lends a rich hazelnut flavor to the drink.

The drink is an automatic win for me because it uses Irish cream. I even started making my own Homemade Irish Cream.

I love DIY projects that take literally 1 minute to blend together and help me save a little money.

To rim your martini glass for this drink, you’re going to have to dip your finger in Nutella.

Literally caught with your hand in the cookie jar, or the Nutella jar, is okay here.

I tried rimming the glass by putting the Nutella on with a spoon, but it wasn’t working very well.

Normally it’s jars of Chocolate Peanut Butter my fingers are caught in, but I won’t say no to Nutella.

Crushed graham crackers adorn the side of the Nutella-rimmed glass.

It’s a good thing I was drinking this at home rather than at a swanky bar because I was literally licking the side of the glass. Classy.

If there’s a way to work graham crackers into a recipe, stuck to the side of a martini glass via Nutella is a great effort.

The graham crackers and Nutella, the creamy factor from the Irish cream; with hazelnut, cinnamon, and vanilla notes from the Frangelico, these martinis go down so easily.

Optionally, you could add a splash of coffee if you’re into Creamy Boozy Coffee drinks like I am.

    I have a big bottle of Frangelico sitting on my bar – I often just drink it straight as a fun after dinner drink (um, should I admit that??), but I am absolutely trying this version next time. Holy yum, Averie – love it!!

      I love your admission. I do the same with Baileys :) But together, the Fran and the Baileys are so good!

      Frangelico is dandy with bourbon, too. I like a little in a Manhattan, finding the rich nuttiness a nice complement to the warm caramel note of the whiskey. It also tames the sweetness of the maraschino cherry garnish.
