There are quite a few variations of the Friar Tuck and these two are the consensus for each of the main mixed drinks under this name.

The one ingredient that each has in common is Frangelico, the hazelnut liqueur first created by Italian monks, thus the name of the drink. However, that is where things change, in #1 (the first recipe) it is paired with dark creme de cacao and cream while #2 has lemon juice, grenadine and (usually) brandy.

Both are good drinks and there's a Friar for whatever mood you're in: chocolate and cream or thick and fruity.

What You'll Need

Friar Tuck No. 2:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  1. Shake well.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or ice-filled old-fashioned glass.
  3. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
