John Lennon’s favorite drink! In my life, it was the first dessert drink I’d ever had, contemplated or seen. At a restaurant in McCall, Idaho, to be specific. There isn’t any agreed upon origin of it but its been around since at least the early 1900’s. Make sure you grate some fresh nutmeg on top, it makes all the difference!
Equipment: shaker, strainer, chilled coupe or martini glass, microplaner
1½ oz heavy cream
1½ oz crème de cacao (or chocolate liqueur)
1½ oz cognac
Nutmeg for garnish
Combine cream, crème de cacao and cognac in shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 20-25 seconds and strain into chilled coupe or martini glass. Top with fresh grated nutmeg. Cheers!
