That’s right, you’ve got the perfect topper for an Irish coffee in can. Or any mixed drink of your choice. Or on ice cream. Or orange poke cake. Or wherever your mind takes you.
It comes in six flavors: chocolate, cherry, raspberry, orange, caramel and vanilla.
I tried the chocolate version on the recommendation of a clerk at WB Liquors & Wine, 9801 I-10 W. I enjoyed the chocolate flavor and the ease of use. Then I took it to a party and watched people really enjoy it with everything from fruit to coffee. One woman even gave herself a shot in the mouth she liked it so much.
And who can resist a product with the tagline, “Get whipped”?
The can costs $12.99.
Whatever you do, don’t refrigerate the can, the checkout clerk told me. And that warning is written all over the can, too.
Here are a few ideas from the Cream website to help you get started. All are great without the Chocolate Cream, but each is made better with it.
1/3 part Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
1/3 part Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
1/3 part Bailey’s Irish Cream
Shake the liqueurs with ice. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Top with Chocolate Cream.
1/2 shot milk
1/2 shot Droste or other chocolate liqueur
1 dash amaretto almond liqueur
Put the milk in the bottom of a shot glass, pour the liqueur on top and add the dash of amaretto. Do not mix. Top With Chocolate Cream.
1 ounce Rumple Minze
1/2 ounce white chocolate liqueur
Fill a mug with hot chocolate and the liquors. Top with Chocolate Cream and shaved chocolate, then sprinkle with cocoa powder.
