ORIGINAL — Macaroon

August 9, 2011 (Day 134) — Macaroon

We’re getting a bit more complicated tonight. Still playing it safe with the flavors, but throwing a curve ball on the preparation.

A macaroon is a meringue-like cookie that has a strong almond flavor and is often made from shaved coconut.

Now, the coconut isn’t always necessary, but it’s become the macaroons that we here at Cocktails, 365 have become our go-to recipe (at least for the editors).

This drink is a take off on that classic cookie (baked good?)


  • 2 oz RumChata
  • 1 oz espresso
  • .5 oz coconut rum
  • .5 oz half and half

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice. Shake at least 30 seconds until the mixture is nice and frothy. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with toasted coconut shavings.

Holy deliciousness batman! Girly. Creamy. But oh, SO good.
