Toasted Almond Cocktail

There we were sitting at our designated table at James and Sonia's wedding this past Saturday when one of our fellow table mates Elsie was drinking a Kahlua and Milk. I suggested to her that if she wanted, she could have added a little Amaretto to the cocktail for an added Coffee/Almond taste. I also suggested maybe adding Frangelico instead of the Amaretto for a Coffee Hazelnut taste to her cocktail. She took my advice and ordered herself one with Amaretto and I inadvertently started a Toasted Almond flood. All of a sudden I had three or four people on various tables drinking Toasted Almonds. Ay-yay-yay.

Well, here is the recipe:
Toasted Almond Cocktail
1.5 oz amaretto liqueur
1.5 oz Kahlua coffee liqueur
1 oz cream

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into an ice filled old-fashioned glass.
Pretty simple and tasty. So go out and get yourselves one. Okie dokie?

Until Then Happy Drinking,
