It weaves together the smooth, rich notes of vodka and the nutty, sweet hints of Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur. The inclusion of a sugared lime element adds a burst of citrus that plays off the depth of the other ingredients, invoking the layered experience of indulging in a slice of German chocolate cake.
