Steamed Cocktails

I realise that I'm probably missing the point of having an espresso machine.

I'll blog about coffee another time. In the meantime, I've found that various soya milk based cocktails work rather well when steamed.

The above was tonight's:
  • 1 shot Kahlua
  • 1/2 shot Frangelico
  • So Good (fresh)
Steamed directly in a whisky glass (foamed to 40oC, then plunged and heated to 60oC creating microfoam). It could probably be improved by adding some grated chocolate to the top - the foam's a bit bland otherwise.

A while ago I poured a little creme de menthe into shot glasses, then topped with steamed chocolate alpro, topped with froth. Works really well.

I'll keep you updated :)


  1. I love the sound of this. I've been drinking a lot more Soya based coffee recently and am loving it. And making anything 'Irish' is alright by me!!

  1. You're so inventive! I love your cocktail posts and anything with Frangelico is a winner in my view.
