Cocktail Friday ~ Almond Joy

 

When I was younger, I was all about beer.

 

And really, I don’t know what I was thinking.  Sugary cocktails are super delicious and way less filling.

 

Sort of like a dessert that relaxes you.

 

So in the name of chocolate and alcohol combos  (I am really feeling chocolate this week, and so are my hormones), I came up with a yummy Almond Joy cocktail.

 

Have one or four.  You are welcome.

 

You’ll need:

2 oz Dark Creme de Cacao

1 oz Amaretto

2 oz coconut rum

1 oz cream of coconut (I buy it in the squeeze bottle instead of can…that way I can stick the lid on and save the rest for later, I actually use it for baking quite a bit!!)

 

Fill shaker with ice.  Add all ingredients, and shake well.  Strain into a glass (I put my glass in the freezer for a bit ahead of time so it would be nice and frosty).

 

Garnish with toasted coconut and chocolate syrup, if desired.

 

To toast coconut, just put some in a pan on medium heat and stir.  It take a while, but once it starts toasting up, stir often and keep your eye on it!!  To garnish the glass, brush a bit of corn syrup on the edge and rim…roll in the coconut and drizzle with chocolate.

 

Have a fabulous weekend!!

    I’m not a big Almond Joy fan, but these look DELISH! I know if my mom were still around, she would be demanding I make it for her since Almond Joy was her favorite candy bar.

    Love you guys :)

    ♥ and harp strings,

    If I liked coconut I would DIG this!…but heres a thought….before making the drink after the glass has been frozen…dip the rim in choc syrup, then dip in the coconut, them pour the drink!
