The key ingredient, Frangelico, imparts the nutty essence of hazelnuts, which complements the zesty citrus notes contributed by both the orange liqueur and lemon. This partnership creates a rich and aromatic profile resembling a freshly made pancake but with a spirited twist. The overall experience is designed to be enjoyed in a quick, flavorful shot, ideally followed by the tangy, palate-cleansing effect of a lemon wedge, making the Pancake cocktail a playful and indulgent treat.
