A Little Toasted
The flavors of almond, coffee and toasted marshmallow come together in a creamy cocktail.
If you like sweet, smooth and creamy cocktails, then this drink is for you. The almond flavor from the amaretto mixes perfectly with the coffee essence in the Kahlua and the toasted marshmallow aroma in the vodka. Shake it up with some half and half, and you have yourself the perfect frothy adult concoction.
You might enjoy this cocktail with dessert, especially almond cake. You could also blend it up with ice for an almond-flavored milkshake. Or, you could enjoy like my spouse and I recently did, as a liquid snack between meals. We had just purchased new chairs for our deck, and the air was finally cool enough to sit outside and enjoy them. It was a Friday afternoon, and we both just gotten home from work and sat outside to unwind, enjoy our chairs and talk about our day. It wasn’t quite dinner time, but our tummies began to rumble. I went inside and scrounged up a few items from the bar, and this super rich, satisfying drink really hit the spot.
There are many variations to this cocktail if you are lacking some of these ingredients. Grand Marnier can be used in lieu of vodka. Try Baileys instead of half and half. If you want to keep it healthier, use low fat milk or pour actual coffee. Feel free tweak the ingredient ratios to your taste and use whatever type of cream or milk you like.
However you mix it, I hope you enjoy the silky, smooth, toasted flavor
