How to Make It
Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled glass, on or off the rocks, depending on your preference.
Why We Like It
Nuts & Berries tastes like it sounds. Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur adds nuttiness, while Chambord, a black-raspberry liqueur gives it fruity notes. Cream liqueur adds, well, cream. For years, I used Bailey’s Irish Cream, but I recently received a sample of Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream, a whiskey-based cream liqueur, and I’m hooked (it’s probably the whiskey). Some people also opt to just heavy use heavy cream in place of the cream liqueur — but that doesn’t sound very festive to me. Even if, like me, you usually prefer straight whiskey to sweet, creamy drinks, give this one a try. Think of it as an early Christmas present for your taste buds, or a liquid dessert. Plus, it’s straight booze. What’s manlier than that?
