Toasted Almond Drinks


Every year when we're at the beach, Dad's in charge of the nightly ladies' drinks. He has a few standards, like margaritas and citrus daiquiris, but he also throws in a few new ones. 

Since we divided up into 2 houses, I miss most of the drinks. :-( I always make sure I know when margarita night is, though! He makes the very best!

Because of ladies' drinks, Dad is always on the lookout for new drinks. This time, inspiration came on a restaurant placemat. 

I was reading the placemat when I saw this. Classy way to find a recipe, I know.

It's a great dessert beverage, especially for summer, because it reminds me of a spiked iced coffee. Of course I had to change it up a little, mostly because I'm not into drinking heavy cream.

And because I'm seemingly incapable of just drinking my dessert, we had ours with the last slices of Brownie Fruit Pizza.

Serves 1

1.5 oz coffee liqueur
1.5 oz amaretto
1 oz Unsweetened Almond Breeze, Original or Vanilla

Measure into a glass and stir. Add ice* if ingredients were not already cold or if you just want a really cold drink.

*Adding ice will weaken the drink. Your choice!
