Angel’s Delight

April 22, 2010 (Day 82) — Angel’s Delight

It’s been a while since I’ve made a drink that’s blatantly foofy, so I figured it was about time I appeased those readers — such as my wife and my friend Brenna — who go nuts for fancypants drinks. And man, considering this thing’s name and it’s ingredients, I don’t think you get much more fancypants. The Angel’s Delight.

1 oz cream

1 oz triple sec (Mr. Boston)

1 oz straight gin (New Amsterdam)

3 dashes grenadine (Rose’s)

Pour your ingredients into a cocktail shaker, shake vigorously until foamy. Pour into a chilled martini glass.

Seriously. Pepto Bismol pink. But, the true question lays in the taste? It’s good. I recommend using a straight gin — such as New Amsterdam — which has a sweeter flavor and less of a bite than your Tanquery does. Otherwise this is just a bit too bitter. But, using a straight gin makes the sweetness of the triple sec, cream and grenadine work.

It reminds me of a boozy base for a Shirley Temple, plus cream, minus ginger ale.

Anyway, Jenn loves it, so you foofy drinkers will definitely take to it. Just simply too sweet for my tastes, however.
