Drink of the Day: Toasted Almond

January 12, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Happy Monday, everybody!   I feel a great week is in store for us.  I am going to make it a little better by introducing a cocktail that is a perfect after-dinner relaxer.

A very simple cocktail to make; only three ingredients are used.  For those of you that like the creamy drinks, this will become one of your favorites for that very reason.  A perfect combination of coffee liqueur, amaretto, and cream, it will be a hit at the next dinner party.  It’s nice to end a hearty meal on.

Hope your week is a great one.  Oh, and I wouldn’t be an Ohio resident if I didn’t mention the Championship Game tonight.  GO BUCKEYES!!3-03 toasted almond

 

Toasted Almond

1 1/2 oz. Kahlua

3/4 oz. Amaretto

Cream

 

Method:  Build this in an old fashioned glass filled with ice by first pouring in the first two ingredients to measure.  Top off with cream.  Put the cocktail into a mixing glass and cap with a tin.  Shake enough to blend the ingredients, not overdoing it.  Pour the cocktail back into the old fashioned glass.
