Sweet Cream Shooter - this is the perfect after dinner drink recipe! Only 3 ingredients it's great for dessert!


Dessert Shots with Whipped Cream

So, you might remember that I have a slight obsession with coffee creamer. Milk in coffee is boring – I need my coffee creamer and I need it in every cup! My favorite flavor of creamer is Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer. I always have an open one in my refrigerator and an extra in the garage just in case I run out. I cannot run out. My day would be ruined, I’m not joking.

It was only a matter of time before I figured out how to use my favorite coffee creamer in a dessert cocktail. Because a dessert cocktail just means you get to have dessert twice: I should know, I’ve made sugar cookie martinis!

bottles of Kahlua, vanilla vodka, and coffee creamer.

4 Ingredients Needed

  • Kahlua – this rum and coffee liqueur is the perfect after dinner drink – skip the actual coffee and have this instead.
  • Vanilla Vodka – If you can’t find vanilla, you can use whipped, or add some vanilla extract.
  • Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer – You can also use half and half or cream, and add some vanilla extract.
  • Whipped Cream – to make these shots with whipped cream!

Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!

How to make Coffee Shots

  1. You want your ingredients cold – then just add the Kahlua and vodka to a shot glass, stir, and top with creamer.
  2. If your ingredients aren’t cold – add them to a shaker with ice, then shake and strain into glass.
  3. Top the shots with whipped cream!

  1. I have been drooling over this since I first spotted it on facebook! Definitely going on my must-try list! Obsessed!

  2. I neeeed one of these now, but considering I’m at work and it’s 6 AM, it’ll have to wait until happy hour. Can I wait that long?!
    Your obsession with creamer is totally understandable. I travel with my own foodstuffs, too. It’s much more comfy that way!

  3. I’m having a feeling these would make Monday morning a whole lot easier. #justsaying

  4. Oooh, Dorothy, these look divine! So easy and so pretty at the same time! I also always have sweetener packets with me at all times. 🙂 I hate when the restaurants go all cheap and use the generic brands. It’s just not the same!

  5. Your nice dinners from your young married days sound so nice! Like from the movies. 😀

    And whoa. These look delicious! Love the added creamer.

  6. These shooters look perfect!! And I have been known to travel with coffee creamer and sweetener packets too because you just never know!! lol

  7. Post-dinner coffee or tea is an absolute must for me, and I love the idea of these elegant after-meal drinks! 🙂
