Chocolate-Dipped Almond (Featuring CREAM Review)


November 5, 2010 (Day 279) — Chocolate-Dipped Almond

So, I’ve had this interesting little can sitting in my bar for the past odd month or so.

It’s called CREAM — and it’s booze-infused whipped cream.

I picked up a bottle simply for the spectacle. After all, alcoholic whipped cream seemed a bit like a hokey hook to sell a mediocre product. But, as a semi-professional booze writer, it’s my job to throw myself on these potential grenades. Besides, being a man, my mind automatically goes to… WAYS… the whipped cream could be used. Because I’m a filthy, disgusting human being.

Tony Stark is my spirit animal.

I’ll tell you I was pretty surprised with the alcoholic whipped cream. It has a pretty solid flavor, with a strong grain alcohol flavor on the end of it. We got the chocolate flavor. A very artificial chocolate flavor, but that’s not always a bad thing. Tastes really good on brownies, we’ll tell you that. I think it has the potential to be good on top o some warmer cocktails.

So, let’s try it!

Chocolate-Dipped Almond

2 oz amaretto

5 oz hot chocolate

Alcoholic whipped cream

In a pre-warmed Irish Coffee glass, build your cocktail. Stir well, then top with your alcoholic whipped cream.

Nice and warming. Very sweet, which is to be expected. A good winter or cold fall night warmer.

Cheers!
