This is my dangerously delicious almond joy cocktail recipe. It is so good, you will need someone to save your from yourself. Trust me, I know.
This is the dangerously delicious Almond Joy cocktail!
What makes it dangerous?
The combination of the 4 ingredients is balanced and delicious that you may forget it’s a cocktail and treat it like a milk shake. It is so smooth and has an unbelievable taste.
I will quote Christopher when he first tasted this cocktail: “I could chug this.”
Yes. Me too.
And as a perk, you can use up your Halloween candy by making this cocktail! 🙂
Other potentially dangerous cocktails on Dishes Delish:
- Long Island iced tea – This cocktail has a lot of booze in it
- Frozen mudslide – Frozen and scrumptious that you may drink it like a shake
- Brandy Alexander – This cocktail reminds me of this almond joy drink since it’s smooth and delicious
The Mixing of the Almond Joy Cocktail
Fill your cocktail shaker 1/2 way with ice and after you measure out the ingredients, pour them into the shaker.
At this time, I also open a Halloween sized almond joy candy bar and crush it in a bowl. I take some of the pieces of the candy bar and attach them to half of the rim of both glasses.
The reason you only garnish half the rim is the open space leaves a place so you can sip easily and nibble the candy bar pieces when you want.
Step 1: Gather the ingredients – creme de cacao, Amaretto, coconut rum and light cream.
Step 2: Measure 2 ounces of Amaretto.
Step 3: Measure 2 ounces of creme de cacao.
Step 4: Measure 1 ounce coconut rum
Step 5: Measure 4 ounces of light cream or half and half.
Step 6: Cap shaker and shake the almond joy cocktail for 20 seconds. Strain and divide the cocktail between the two candy rimmed martini glasses.
Look at it! It looks good, doesn’t it?
The vertical view!
Here’s the overhead view for your viewing pleasure.
Now, I keep repeating to myself, “I will not chug, I will nut chug.”
You see? I’m civilized.
