Buon giorno!

Like your java?  This one’s for you: THE NAUGHTY MONK! This hot coffee beverage will end your love affair with Irish Coffee forever.

THE NAUGHTY MONK  is a warm smooth coffee drink, just made for wintry weather.

Why the monk? This coffee contains the sweet and delicious Italian hazelnut flavored Frangelico Liqueur, named for a famous monk of the 1400′s.

Why naughty? –  It includes a stiff double whammy from Dark Rum. However, it is NOT too strong. It is just right!

Then – there is that very subtle hint of chocolate from the chocolate liqueur. I love this coffee – it’s naughty – but not too much. It slides right down, tastes absolutely delicious, and warms you from top to bottom. This is a perfect choice for winter fireside snuggling and has been a family favorite at our house for a number of years! Everyone loves it!

Hope you enjoy it too!


Makes: one coffee drink


4 oz. Hot freshly brewed coffee or espresso

3/4 oz. Dark Rum ( I like the Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum)

1 oz. Frangelico Liqueur

1/2 oz Godiva Liqueur (Chocolate)

Whipped Cream

Freshly grated nutmeg

Toasted Chopped Hazelnuts


Grated Dark Chocolate if you prefer


While you brew your fresh coffee or espresso, add your rum and liqueurs to your cup or mug. Pour in the hot coffee. Top with some whipped cream, freshly grated nutmeg and toasted hazelnuts or dark chocolate. Mmmmm – I can almost taste it!
