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.
The Espresso Alexander Print Me
- 1½ oz Crater Lake Hazelnut Espresso Vodka
- 1½ oz dark creme de cacao
- 1½ oz half-and-half
- Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. I like to garnish this one with three espresso beans arranged neatly in the resulting foam.

I personally prefer to make my espresso cocktail like this:
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.
