Day two of the rich and desserty cocktails. This tastes like a chocolate candy with raspberry filling! Well, in their liquid state.
0.5 oz Raspberry Liqueur
0.5 oz Creme de Cacao
0.5 oz Irish Cream
1.0 oz Cream or Half-n-half
Ice into shaker. Ingredients into shaker. Shake. Strain. Pour. Drink. Enjoy
We at the lair have decided to give some very dessert-like drinks a go over the feels-like-winter, but-not-quite-winter season. The Mudslide showed up on my search and gave me an opportunity to finally open the bottle of Carolans Irish Cream I have. This was a good start to trying creams of the Irish variety!
2 oz Chocolate Liqueur
2 oz Coffee Liqueur
2 oz Irish Cream
Add ice to a cocktail shaker. Add ingredients. Shake and strain into cocktail glass. Drink. Lick the cocktail glass clean!
A sweet and creamy winter cocktail.
1 oz bourbon
1 oz crème de cacao
1 oz half and half
One egg white (I didn’t do the egg white and it was still pretty creamy)
Dash of simple syrup
Dash of salt
Add ingredients to a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously, strain into a cocktail glass. “Garnish with nutmeg, cranberries, and a sprig of rosemary.” (Okay, so they lost me after cocktail glass)…
I am interested in dessert drinks, especially as winter gets closer. Irish cream is used in quite a few dessert drinks like the Mudslide, Buttery Nipple, and Chocolatini.
Since I have not opened this yet, I don’t know whether it is a category I’ll like or use. Time will tell, and I’ll update this post soon.
