Creamy Nutty Paddy
Today's goal was to create a green cocktail. Many think of creme de mint when they think of a green drink. For that sole reason I pulled out my sour apple pucker. Then I decided to just get a little crazy/creative and mix it up with the new heavy cream my husband bought and a couple other items in the bar.
There you have it, Creamy Nutty Paddy. I can honestly say that I think I can taste every...single...ingredient in this cocktail. It's weird, but good all at the same time. If you want to taste a cocktail you have never tasted before, give this one a try. Why not?!
On another note, we just found out that our son has been moved up to the varsity baseball team this year! He's a sophomore and couldn't be happier......well, actually he'd be happier if he didn't still have to wear his giant boot when walking and could actually get on the field and play ball. Come Monday, we have our next appt. with his doctor to see what the next step is. We have our fingers crossed that he doesn't have to wear that boot anymore and can begin using his foot again.
For those of you who did not know, I am now an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails (http://jenpenas.jamberrynails.net/). I am in LOVE with the product and am constantly wearing the nail wraps. If you would like a sample or to host a party on Facebook contact me! You'll be glad you did! Our new Spring/Summer catalog will be coming out on March 1st, after that I think I'm going to do a giveaway for a FREE sheet of nail wraps. Stay tuned!!
Here is the recipe for my Creamy Nutty Paddy:
- 1 ounce caramel vodka
- 1 ounce midori
- 1 sour apple pucker
- 1/2 ounce amaretto
- 1/2 ounce heavy whipping cream
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake and strain into a short cocktail glass.
