Sometimes it is so cold and rainy/snowy/windy outside that I just want to sit by the fire and be able to have a drink.
Especially this one, which is a total throwback to my time in college, when I would order this when it was snowing outside and sip it at a bar of the White Dog, a college bar in Philadelphia, feeling very adult, as opposed ot the typical college-drink of a Midori sour:)
1 ounce Brandy (I also made it with Bourbon in a pinch)
1 1/2 ounces Amaretto
3 ounces cream
Pour everythign over ice, mix together. Strain if desired and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
It's a dessert in a glass.
Any other wintertime libations I should try?
We don't have much of a "liquor cabinet" at home, mostly just wine, and scotch for my husband, so this was a big move into mixed drinks for me:)
