This is an especially distinctive cocktail for smooth, demanding palates that enjoy finding various layers of flavor in a drink. ¬†With a base of vodka and various sweet liqueurs, this Couple’s Cocktail presents a creamy texture, a cinnamon aroma, and a variety of flavors, ranging from creamy whiskey to bitter orange. ¬†It’s an array of pleasures for the senses.
Before making the mix, deal with the cream: pour 30 ml of cream in a glass and whisk it a bit so that it acquires a smooth, spongey texture. ¬†Now, in the cocktail shaker, put ice, 30ml of vodka, 30 ml of coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua), 30 ml of cream whiskey (such as Baileys) and 15 ml of fresh orange juice. ¬†Shake the shaker for 10 seconds or so, so that all of the ingredients mix and chill.
Filter the mixture into a wide glass, keeping the ice from falling in. ¬†Add the whipped cream with a spoon, covering the top of the drink completely. ¬†Sift some cinnamon on top of the drink, which will add both aroma and appearance.
