I’ll be honest, I’m not a big drinker. Whilst some of my friends will happily knock back pint after pint of real ale, I’m happy with a cocktail or two, a pint of cider or a glass of red wine. That was until I tried Fratello. This is the only liqueur I have ever genuinely liked and I’m hooked.
We tried it for the first time a few months ago when we went to our friends for a hazelnut themed dinner party. She asked us to pick it up on the way to her house, so we swung by Waitrose, of course they’d have it in stock. Not a cheap purchase at £14… it was worth EVERY penny.
With a deep hazelnut flavour, this nutty drink slips down your throat, leaving a lush hazelnut flavour sitting on your tongue. When I think of liqueurs it conjures up memories of overly alcoholic flavours and eye watering, gut-wrenching disgust. I don’t do shots of strong stuff anymore, but I could drink this stuff all night long (and probably not feel too bad for it in the morning).
If you like Nutella, you’ll love Fratello. I’m yet to make some cocktails with this stuff – I’m saving that for my birthday. I will, of course, let you know how I get on!
