With the taste of pralines and an aroma redolent of chocolate, hazelnut syrup boosts the flavor of drinks ranging from liqueurs to lattes. The sweet touch of the nut also known as a filbert adds a toasty note to a morning mocha and pairs particularly well with cream.

Add a teaspoon or two of hazelnut syrup to a 12-ounce coffee cup.

Add cream to the cup, as desired. Pour the coffee into the cup and stir it for about 10 seconds to incorporate the syrup.

Taste the coffee and adjust the flavoring as needed.


Put flavoring ingredients, such as cream or syrups, in the cup before you pour the coffee for easier incorporation and a hotter drink.

To make an iced hazelnut coffee drink, add the syrup to hot coffee, stirring to thoroughly combine it before you add the ice.
