Things are about to get ridiculous. But it’s almost my birthday, so I’m allowed to be ridiculous.
There is no point in even trying to pretend that this drink is in any way, shape or form a normal or practical cocktail. It’s ridiculous and extravagant and is really only socially acceptable to be consumed on ridiculous and extravagant occasions, like birthdays. This cocktail also required a lot of hunting around for the required alcohols, but 3 stores later, I prevaled. My grocery store stocks whipped cream vodka, but not creme de caco. Glad to see what’s a priority for their buying audience.
Now, I must admit I am a little wary of cream based cocktails, unless The Dude and bowling are involved then cream based cocktails are not only acceptable, but required, but this cocktail might have changed that slightly. This is by no means an ‘everyday’ drink, it’s more like a once a year drink, thus why it is perfect for birthdays.
