This almond joy cocktail recipe is dangerously delicious. It is so good, you will need to remind yourself to sip it and not chug it. It’s that good.
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! 🙂

How to make this cocktail
After measuring out the ingredients, pour them into the shaker.
Open a Halloween sized almond joy candy bar and crush it in a bowl. 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.
Gather the ingredients – creme de cacao, almond liqueur, coconut rum and light cream.
Measure 2 ounces of almond liqueur. I use Amaretto.
Measure 2 ounces of creme de cacao.
Measure 1 ounce coconut rum.
Measure 4 ounces of light cream or half and half.
Cap shaker and shake the almond joy cocktail for 20 seconds. Strain and divide the cocktail between the two candy rimmed martini glasses.
It looks good, doesn’t it?

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.
