About this recipe: I am a bartender and this is one of my most popular concoctions. Don't let the name fool you - this martini packs a punch!
Some people may rate this a lot higher but my wife, who I made this for, is not one for "girly-girl drinks," which are typically sweet and syrupy as this one turned out to be. If you like a sweeter drink with a lot of power behind it, this is definitely good. On the down side, it tastes a lot like Frangelico on the rocks. My wife and I like little mini martinis or cordials - this would definitely be 5-stars if it was served as one of those. As a full martini, however, Naples thought it was too sweet and rich - better in a lesser amount as an after dinner cordial (in a cordial glass). - 10 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Of course I love this drink, I submitted it. Yes it's strong, but most martini's are supposed to be. That is why they cost so much. Also, Starbucks makes an excellent Coffee Liquer, that could replace the Kalhua... still either way, Cheers!!!!! - 05 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thansk to Princess Antz review, I knew to serve this after dinner...thanks Princess! ;o) I used Stoli Vanilla, Frangelico & Patron XO Cafe (a coffee flavored tequila that is fantastic!). I enjoyed this a lot but it made hubby shudder. LOL Be warned...these are tasty but potent. Thansk for the recipe Darlene O! - 31 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
