I’m no fan of flavored vodkas, but I’ve long been a firm believer in combining vices. Enter Three Olives Triple Shot Espresso Vodka, which allows the drinker to take the bite out of winter with some caffeinated booze. From Three Olives –
With three shots of the finest Italian Espresso, Three-O brings coffee lovers the ultimate in espresso flavored vodka. Infused with a premium selection of imported roasted beans, the caffeinated cocktail also offers a hint of chocolate and caramel flavors. Three-O Triple Shot Espresso captures the essence of the ideal after dinner drink, perfect for a chilly night on the town or for cuddling up by the fireplace.
Though it’s been around for a couple years, I’ve yet to try Triple Shot Espresso Vodka. And while I can’t imagine drinking this vodka—or any vodka—straight, it might have its place mixed into a coffee cocktail. In fact, this could be the perfect workplace pick-me-up, as vodka doesn’t have the telling smell of other spirits.
For this purpose alone Three Olives Triple Shot Espresso might be worth a taste. And after all, vodka has certainly been infused with things far weirder than espresso.
Here’s a Triple Shot Espresso cocktail from Three Olives to get you started –
2 ounces hot cocoa
1 ½ ounces Three Olives Triple Shot Espresso Vodka
½ ounces Amaretto liqueur
Top with whipped cream, and sprinkle with shaved chocolate.
