The Undertaker cocktail tastes like a mildly sweetened and flavored espresso served cold. The caffeine from the espresso can keep you from feeling the kick the alcohol, which makes it one of those stealth drinks that sneak up on you.
Enjoy an Undertaker whenever you want a cold coffee drink with a kick. This drink has a great flavor, but the combined effects of a shot of espresso with plenty of vodka make it a standout.
The flavors here are coffee and vanilla, so it’s an easy drink to love. Because it’s such a simple recipe, you can mix up a pitcher of it to serve at parties. Then you can top off your guest’s drinks as needed, or even let them self-serve.
If you want to enjoy this drink with a meal, think of foods that have coffee or mocha flavors. This Coffee Rubbed Steak is perfect because the rub is coffee based, but it also has other herbs and spices to enhance that flavor. But if you want something sweet, try this Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Cake. It doesn’t actually have any coffee in it, but it’s a perfect complement to coffee.
If you don’t normally drink espresso, you can just brew some very strong coffee instead. A french roast will add some bitterness to the drink, which the sweet notes from the Kahlua, vanilla vodka and creme de cacao will counter.
