And this would be my first ever post in the “Adult Beverage” Category. Generally, I usually go for beer and wine – err, beer OR wine – but tonight I didn’t cook anything and making up a new little cocktail just kinda dawned on me. I checked out what was in the back of the pantry, and a couple minutes later, this was the result. And it’s pretty darn good. Like, REALLY good. Looks downright angelic in the photo too with its halo of sugar doesn’t it? 🙂
Caramel Roasted Almond
- 3/4 oz caramel-flavored vodka
- 3/4 oz amaretto liqueur
- 1 oz half and half
- 1 oz Kahlua coffee-flavored liqueur
- turbinato sugar
Take your serving glass, wet the rim and dip in the turbinato sugar. Add the Kahlua.
In a beverage shaker, add ice, then the vodka, amaretto, and half and half. Shake and strain gently into the glass with the Kahlua, so it looks swirly. Serve!
