What are Stroopwafels?

Stroopwafels – just like the ones United Airlines serves on some flights – are thin Dutch cookies that are a bit like a cross between a crepe, a waffle, and a cookie.

The cookies are thin, but cooked on a waffle-style iron, and served with melted caramel sandwiched between two cookies.

In Amsterdam, stroopwafels are sold in tons of shops and on stands throughout the city and in markets – you can also get them dipped in chocolate!

Stroopwafels are an amazing treat – and something you MUST sample when visiting Amsterdam!

If you’re stateside, you can order them in bulk – my husband likes to pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up, and I love to dunk them in coffee or tea.

Piping hot coffee with salted caramel vodka, caramel sauce, a hint of cinnamon, whipped cream, and tons of cookie crumbles – this is the most decadently delicious cocktail, ever!

If you love stroopwafels, and caramel lattes, you’re going to LOVE this cocktail.

This drink was inspired by my Christmas market trip through Europe last year – we started in Amsterdam, and then headed around Germany to take in tons of market cheer.

Visiting Amsterdam

Head to Albert Cuyp to browse the market stalls, pop into the adorable shops, get some amazing frites – and of course, hot, delicious, perfectly melty stroopwafels!

I love watching them make stroopwaffles in the market – it’s cool to see them come together, especially as they are dipped in chocolate.

Albert Cuyp is great for people watching, and a short stroll from many parts of the city.

When we visited, we stayed at the Kimpton – it is gorgeous, has a fabulous bar, and reasonably priced valet parking.

What Vodka to Use

You can use any vodka you like for this cocktail – but we love adding different flavored vodkas in this mixed drink to add different notes.

I am calling for Smirnoff Kissed Caramel vodka – but you can use vanilla, whipped cream, cake, or or just plain vodka, too!

FAQs

Where can I find stroopwafel liqueur?

Stroopwafel liqueur is not as common as some other liqueurs, but you may find it in well-stocked liquor stores or online.

Can I use regular vodka, or does it have to be flavored vodka?

You can use regular vodka, but flavored vodka, such as caramel or vanilla, can enhance the stroopwafel flavor in the cocktail.

Is this cocktail served hot or cold?

Stroopwafel vodka coffee can be served both hot and cold, depending on your preference. It’s often enjoyed as a warm, comforting drink, but it can also be served over ice for a refreshing twist.

Can I make a non-alcoholic version of stroopwafel coffee?

Yes, you can create a non-alcoholic version by omitting the vodka and using stroopwafel-flavored syrup or a stroopwafel-flavored coffee creamer.

What type of coffee works best for this cocktail?

A strong coffee, like espresso or dark roast, works well to balance the sweetness of the stroopwafel liqueur.
