This is a pretty specific drink to Oregon. It uses Bend Distillery’s Crater Lake Hazelnut Espresso Vodka as a base. I suppose you could fool around with some other liquors/liqueurs to approximate the flavor.

This is a really popular dessert drink, and has been ever since I created it at Bamboo.

  • 1½ oz Crater Lake Hazelnut Espresso Vodka

    I personally prefer to make my espresso cocktail like this:

    2oz espresso
    3/4 oz Kaluha
    1 1/2 oz Stoli Vanil
    1/2 oz Godiva Dark

    Garnish: 3 espresso beans

    Build the drink in a mixing glass full of ice, shake, and strain into a cocktail glass.
