Okay, so I succumbed to my weakness. I finally made my creme brulee cocktail. It has been on my featured list for way too long. I know it's not on the slim down plan I'm on but I haven't eaten much today because of our latest weekend project. (And like most of our projects, it took all day.)
We purchased an armoire off craigslist which is absolutely gorgeous. Of course, we don't have a truck so we tried to fit it into the back of our car. (no way) We ended up renting a truck and then the "furniture shuffle " began. Each time we moved a piece all the drawers came out and all was cleaned and vacuumed. When it came time to move the armoire we wished we had David Blaine to levitate this thing. After much lifting, pushing, pulling and positioning we miraculously had it where it will sit for the next 30 years! Needless to say we finished around 4:30. Yes, by this time we were more than ready for this concoction. The "creme brulee cocktail" So, in my weakened state I whipped this up.
I wanted to wait until October which is my hubby's birthday month. After all, it's his favorite desert. I saw this in a recipe book a while back and couldn't wait to try it. I do prefer my wine but it was pretty tasty! It almost tasted like an eggnog without the eggs. It will be a great drink to serve around the Holidays!
1/4 cup vanilla vodka
1/4 cup butterscotch schnapps
1/2 cup half & half (or vanilla flavored creamer)
crushed ice in 2 glasses
sprinkle of nutmeg on top
For this I placed all except nutmeg into blender and mixed until frothy. Pour into glass and top with nutmeg. Yum! If you don't want to blend just serve over ice.
