Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur brings home the gold with two cocktails that will help you celebrate the arrival of spring.Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur product information, recipes and cocktail photos provided by brand representatives.

Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur is the original hazelnut liqueur dating back more than 300 years. Frangelico is crafted by toasting and distilling wild Tonda Gentile hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. The toasted nuts are combined with cocoa, coffee, vanilla and alcohol. It is then aged to maturity in oak casks giving the liqueur its golden color.

The following recipes were originally created for Oscar watch parties. Each named to celebrate Oscar winners. But these cocktails are also great for riding out the final cool days of winter and welcome in the first days of spring. Enjoy!
