First off...it has been WAY too long since I've posted a Tie One On Tuesday. WAY TOO LONG! Let's remedy that, shall we?
Did you know that today is National Squirrel Appreciation Day? Neither did I. Let's raise a glass to our nut loving, fuzz butt shaking, bird seed stealing friend.
I love Pink Squirrels, both the drink and the idea of a bright pink squirrel.
3/4 oz creme de noyeaux
3/4 oz light creme de Cacao
1 oz cream
Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain and serve in a martini glass. If you want something a bit more frosty, combine in a blender and set to whip.
Maybe pink isn't your color? How about a Chocolate Squirrel?
