Don't you love it when a cocktail mimics something (a favorite ice cream, a dessert, or in this case a candy bar) so closely that you would swear that the item was simply pureed with a shot of vodka. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. It took me back years to their old commercial promoting Almond Joy and their nutless companion Mounds with the "Sometimes you feel like a nut....sometimes you don't" campaign. ;o) In any case, it's an easy to make, and great tasting, after dinner drink. If you like the candy bar, then you'll love the Almond Joy cocktail. Give it a try!
1 oz. Malibu Rum
1 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Dark Creme de Cacao (Light will work too)
2 oz. Half & Half (or any coffee creamer)
Garnish with Chocolate shavings
Combine all the liquid ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake well, and strain into your favorite cocktail glass. Run a piece of semi-sweet chocolate across a grater over the top of the cocktail, add a couple of sipping straws, and there you have it...the Almond Joy cocktail. Enjoy!
