RECIPE: Almond Joy Cocktail

We’re toasting to our Dad today with an Almond Joy cocktail. Dad loved Almond Joy, as do we.

The recipe comes from Disaronno Originale almond liqueur. The website has a trove of cocktail recipes for almond lovers.

To get the coconut flavor, add flaked coconut as a garnish. Or, if you have coconut liqueur, add 1part to the recipe.

Enjoy this Almond Joy as an after-dinner drink…or drinkable dessert. You can serve an actual piece of Almond Joy or Bounty candy bar, chocolate-covered coconut patty, chocolate chip cookie with almonds and coconut, or a coconut macaroon on the side.

    Preparation

    1. Combine amaretto, white chocolate liqueur, fresh cream and a sprinkling of powdered cocoa in a cocktail shaker.

    2. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with another sprinkle of cocoa.

    TIP: We keep our “garnishing cocoa” in an extra salt shaker, with a piece of plastic wrap between the shaker rim and the cap, to keep it fresh between uses. If you don’t want to keep it in a shaker, use a small sieve to get a fine sprinkle of cocoa on top of the drink.
