The wife is home!!! I can start drinking again.  Serious drinking.  Forget where I am drinking.  Help me drinking.

It’s not really that bad, but I have to say that it is so much more fun to make a cocktail and talk about it.  Time for a fun one – the Russian Quaalude.  This one can be made three ways – a pousse-cafe, served up or on the rocks.

  • 0.75 ounce Frangelico
  • 0.75 ounce Irish creme liqueur (Baileys)
  • 0.75 ounce vodka

For a pousse-cafe, layer everything carefully in a shot glass and wow your friends with your skills.  Otherwise be an everyman and shake everything over ice and serve either in a rocks glass over ice or straight up in a martini glass.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • This is liquid desert, unfortunately I had it right before dinner.
  • Basically a Nutty Irishman with the added benefit of vodka to warm the belly.
  • Tastes like Baileys, with nuts.  The ladies will love it.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 8/10
  • Strength: 6/10
  • Sweetness: 9/10
  • Maybe next time I will have this AFTER dinner as it should be served.
