Toasted Almond Shot Recipe

Known as the toasted almond shot, the popular drink combines almonds and coffee in perfect harmony. You can add a teaspoon of vodka, or even a shot of vanilla, to add a smoky, spicy kick. If you like, you can also garnish with toasted almonds.

Amaretto and coffee liqueurs are mixed with a cream base, which is the basis of the drink mix. A light and pleasant mixed drink for times when you want a drink that is light on the booze, the toasted almond is a delightful choice.


  • Even though you’ll be tempted to pour and stir this drink in the glass, shaking is the best method for making it taste better. Agitation and dilution will alter the heaviness of the cream and give it a frothy lightness that is much more pleasant.
  • Drinks made from milk are lighter in color than those made from cream. It is best not to use milk thinner than 1 percent because of the dilution caused by shaking.
