Silk Stockings is April 8th Drink of the Day!!

April 8, 2013 | By | 10 Comments

This has been a drink that has been a popular dessert cocktail for quite some time.  However, there are two ways of making this.  The one I chose to do today comes from Mr. Boston’s Handbook.  Some recipes call for it to have raspberry liqueur along with the tequila and creme de cacao.  The one in this bar book has a splash of grenadine instead of raspberry liqueur.  Either way, you cannot go wrong with this cream cocktail selection.

As with any of these cream drinks, the liquor flavor is masked.  Be sure to watch the speed you’ll be enjoying the beverage.  Don’t let the flavor fool you to believe you can double your intake.  Be safe and enjoy!

Silk Stockings4-8 silk stockings

1 1/2 oz. Tequila

1 oz. Creme de Cacao

1 1/2 oz. Light Cream

Splash of Grenadine

Ground Cinnamon (optional)


Method:  In a shaker glass filled with ice, pour in the measured amounts of tequila and creme de cacao.  Add the cream and a splash of grenadine.   Cap off with a shaker tin and shake well.  Strain into a cold cocktail glass.  Sprinkle ground cinnamon on top of the drink if you desire.  In my opinion, it tends to take over the overall drink losing some of the flavor of the other ingredients.  As always, this is your drink.  Make it any way that you’ll enjoy it.
