Drink Variations

Skip the Cream: For a nice, short drink, skip the cream in the recipe above.  The Irish cream will retain the drink’s creaminess and this version is best served in a cocktail glass.

With Vodka: If you’re looking for a slightly stronger drink, just add vodka.  One popular variation opts for cream instead of Irish cream, although Irish cream is perfectly fine as well.  In either case, retain the equal pour of all the ingredients.

An Entirely Different “Frenzy”: To really shake up the flavor of the cocktail, you might try the orange-chocolate version.  For this one, pour equal parts vodka, amaretto, triple sec, and creme de cacao.  That drink will not be creamy but to bring back that aspect, simply add a splash of Irish cream or dairy cream.
