Derby Day Cinnamon Latte

A gift of a bottle of espresso vodka and a challenge to experiment with it...I cannot resist.

Derby Day Cinnamon Latte

1 1/2 oz espresso vodka
1 oz Irish cream liqueur

Splash cinnamon schnapps
1 oz whole milk

Shake ingredients together with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Or, for the coffee cup presentation, swirl ice and water in the cup until chilled. Discard ice and water. Strain the cocktail into the cup. Use a frother (such as an Aerolatte) to foam the surface and sprinkle with cinnamon or a one-to-one cinnamon sugar blend.

Was this the one from us or did someone else get you espresso vodka? Either way, this drink looks awesome!
