I love to entertain and attend parties during the holiday season!
One of my favorite steps to preparing for parties is planning Unusual cocktails and drinks for my party guests! I love not only providing the liquors and mixers, but coming up with a signature holiday cocktail recipe for each occasion. I think it helps make things more festive!
Thanks to a generous amount of Kaluha in my liquor cabinet left over from a blogging retreat, this year's holiday cocktail recipe is going to be the Toasted Almond, introduced to me by a bartender friend of mine a few years ago!
Toasted Almond Holiday Cocktail Recipe
2 oz DiSarrono Amaretto liqueur
2 oz Kahlua coffee liqueur
2 oz Bailey's (if you want a little "lighter" drink, substitute half and half for the Bailey's)
Shake, strain into cocktail glass rimmed w/ toasted almonds.
Helptful Tip: Chocolate syrup will facilitate in making almonds stick to the rim and compliment the flavors nicely.
If you want to turn this into more a Martini, just add 1oz vodka!
