Most mornings I’m up by 7am with a cup of coffee in my hand. By 9am, I’ve already downed my second cup. To say that I love coffee is an understatement. That’s why I’m beyond exciting for this month’s UrbanLush collaboration! Megan and I are thrilled to be teaming up with Whynatte for our November cocktails! Whynatte is a premium latte drink that comes in this badass black and gold can (it’s no secret I’m a sucker for awesome packaging). Did I mention it tastes like a dream? It’s super refreshing and it gives you just the kick you need without that awful jittery feeling that other coffee drinks tend to give you.
This week, we went with two of my favorite flavors: hazelnut and cinnamon. To make two cinna-haze martinis you’ll need:
1 can Whynatte
1oz Cinnamon flavored vodka (we used Smirnoff)
2oz Hazelnut Kahlua
dash of cinnamon for garnish (if you want to be really fancy, use it to rim the martini glass)
Mix Whynatte, cinnamon vodka, and hazelnut Kahlua in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour in martini glass. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon. Enjoy!
The cinna-haze martini tastes like a party in your mouth! Read Megan’s take on it here.
