The next time you’re looking to knock yourself out but wishing it could be painless, use a Velvet Hammer. This drink packs more alcohol than you think, given its smooth, sweet, creamy taste.

The Velvet Hammer looks a lot like a White Russian, and they do both use a coffee liqueur and creamer. But the Velvet Hammer includes an equal part of Cointreau, giving this cocktail a significant orange flavor. If you’ve ever had a really good latte with orange syrup added, you have an idea what deliciousness you’re in for with the Velvet Hammer.

Velvet Hammer

  • 2 ounces Cointreau
  • 2 ounces Tia Maria
  • 2 ounces half-and-half

Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Pour the ingredients in. No stirring or garnish required.
