What is a Frangelico?

Frangelico is a popular hazelnut-flavored liquor that is manufactured in Italy.

It is made from an infusion of hazelnuts and includes natural flavorings like cocoa and vanilla to give it a complex, delicious taste.

This product is enjoyed by everyone globally and occupies a permanent spot in the bars as it adds a sweet, nutty flavor to a variety of popular cocktails.

People relish this on ice as a dessert drink. When mixed with vodka, it tastes like rich, fluffy chocolate cake.

If you’re looking forward to a quality drink then I would recommend you to go for Frangelico only.

As it is a premium-quality liquor and has a price tag to match.

However, there are few substitutes available out there and you can look for hazelnut from brands like Bartenura, DeKuyper, Francesca, Hiram Walker, and Kahlua.

It is also pretty simple to prepare it at your home with the available ingredients by adding a little cocoa, vanilla and coffee to the infusion to create a close replica of Frangelico.
