Surprise your guests with ice cream-based Vanilla Mocha Latte Shooters. Infused with extracts and garnished with vanilla sugar this delicious drink packs a flavorful and festive punch in a single shot glass.

Here’s the recipe:

Vanilla-Mocha-Latte Shooters
(Serves 8)


½ teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Chocolate Extract
½ teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract
½ teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
½ cup chilled vodka
2 tablespoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar (for rimming glasses)
½ cup heavy cream
3 cups firmly packed vanilla ice cream (about 6 large scoops)

In a small bowl, combine chocolate, coffee and vanilla extracts and vodka; cover and place in freezer until chilled.

In a small shallow bowl, add just enough water to moisten glass rims. In an additional small shallow bowl, add vanilla sugar. Dip each shooter glass rim into water and then into sugar; set aside.

Add cream and ice cream to an electric blender container, cover and blend on high, about 10 seconds. Add chilled vodka-mixture, cover and blend until smooth. Pour milkshake mixture into a piping bag or a large glass measuring cup and carefully fill 8 (2.5-ounce) glasses. Serve.
