amaretto liqueur

Jay Z and Beyoncé, photographed drinking D’USSÉ “The Code” cocktails on a beach in Hawaii on June 18, 2016. The cocktail consists of D’USSÉ, pineapple juice, Disaronno amaretto liqueur, Angostura aromatic bitters, and wedges of lemon to serve.

Plan for tonight...

…loosen up my writer’s block for the latest instalment in my slash series, ‘The Glitches and the Glows’ by getting drunk on copious cocktails. Tonight’s choice is 'Cherry Tart’ - equal parts amaretto to cherry liqueur.

(The last time I got pished, I bashed out “Dutch Courage” in 3 hours so you never know…)

What’s Your Home State’s Signature Cocktail

America boasts an almost endless array of liquor, making the choice of one signature cocktail for each state a tricky task. But every state gets tipsy in its own special way, and we chose these cocktails with some semblance of logic: a combination of state of origin, popularity, and exclusivity.

Kuroshitsuji Cookbook:

  • Title: Chocolate Amaretto Crêpe Cake
  • Episode/Chapter: That Butler, The Greatest Evil [chp. 5]

Information:

  • Yield: 1 9 inch cake
  • There are multiple kuro entries for each recipe in the anime/manga. Check out my ‘kuroshitsuji cookbook’ tag for more.
  • Image and recipe source are the same.

Recipe:

Ingredients: 

  • Note:  Have ready a pastry brush and a little cup of melted butter before you begin cooking the crepes. This is for brushing and the pan with butter.

Crêpes:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup confectioners sugar

Chocolate-Amaretto Filling:

  • 1 1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 Tbsp. amaretto liqueur

Chocolate-Amaretto Ganache:

  • Note: This recipe can be halved if you don’t plan to make the amaretto truffles.
  • 9 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur

Directions:

Crêpes:

  • Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or a blender and process until well combined.  The mixture will be the consistency of heavy cream.
  • Brush a 9 or 10 inch skillet with melted butter and place over medium heat until butter just starts to smoke.  Pour scant ¼ cup of batter into the skillet. Swirl the batter with the pan lifted over the stove eye until the bottom is coated with a thin layer of batter.  Place pan on the stove eye and cook until the surface of the crepe loses most of its glossiness and the top is set.  At this point, most recipes will tell you to flip the crepes; mine were cooked through without flipping, so I just slid them out of the skillet and onto a plate.  
  • Repeat process until all crepe batter is used. Allow the crepes to cool completely.

Filling:

  • Whip heavy cream in a large bowl on medium-high speed with a hand mixer or using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Gradually add the granulated sugar.  Mixture will begin to thicken.
  • Gradually add in the unsweetened cocoa powder.  Add the amaretto liqueur one tablespoon at a time, and then add the almond extract.  Whip until stiff peaks form.  Set aside.

Ganache:

  • Roughly chop the chocolate and place it in a medium bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium-high heat until just boiling.
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and whisk until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.  Mix in the Amaretto and whisk again until smooth. Allow to cool slightly before using

Assembly:

  • Center a crepe on a serving plate.  Using a pastry brush, very lightly coat the crepe with chocolate ganache while it is still thin (if ganache begins to set, you can gently heat it in the microwave at 20 second intervals). Thinly spread a little whipped filling over the ganache and top with another crepe. Continue brushing, spreading and stacking, ending with a crepe on top.  Set aside.
  • When remaining chocolate ganache is of spreading consistency, use to frost the cake.  Let stand at room temperature until set.  
  • Note: If making entire ganache recipe, remaining amount can be chilled and rolled into truffles.  Roll truffles in cocoa powder and garnish top of cake, if desired.

Finally found time to make another frozen drink set!

Rusty Nail's Recipes

Merry Christmas, Dear Drinkers! I do so hope that today’s missive finds you all in the merriest of holiday spirits. And speaking of Spirits! Y'all may have noticed fewer recipes this month, than you’ve been seeing me produce recently; and there is a good reason for that, which I can now impart to you. Today’s honoree has not one, not two, but three recipes honoring them, the work they’ve done, and the contributions they’ve made to our community. I make no exaggeration when I say that were it not for today’s honoree, our community would be smaller, and sadder. Their work has spanned the history of our hobby, and ranged from phenomenal sight gags to Gaslamp Fantasy to one of the most beloved stories of our little corner of the internet. Today’s honoree, folks, is Egophilliac.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we’ll start with her most recent work

Steamquestria!

In this delightful Gaslamp AU, we see our mane six re-imagined as fully autonomous AI’s. The setting itself is a delight, with the integration of AI as equal or integrated participants in society, and with human augmentation and assistance provided through steampunk science.

An Accomplished Steampunk Scientist Twilight

Ingredients:

  •     1 teaspoon Earl Grey Tea Leaves
  •     3oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
  •     1oz Lemon Juice
  •     1oz Simple Syrup
  •     Chilled Martini Glass
  •      Ice
  •     1 Cog Wheel, cut from Lemon Rind.


Special Equipment:

A strainer, a Cocktail Shaker..

Making an Accomplished Steampunk Scientist Twilight

  1.     Pour Gin and Tea Leaves into spare glass.
  2.     Let sit for two hours.
  3.     Strain Gin into Cocktail shaker..
  4.     Add Lemon Juice, Ice, and Simple Syrup.
  5.     Shake well.
  6.     Strain into Martini Glass.
  7.     Add Cog Garnish.
  8.     Drink!

You’ve just finished making an Accomplished Steampunk Scientist Twilight!

The combination of the Bluish Bombay Sapphire Gin with the Tea Leaves will not only produce a taste that is distinctly centered in the mind’s palette on Victorian Times, but will also come closer than much else I could put my hands on towards getting to Twi’s purplish hue, short of using something literally purple, like Chambord, or Merlot.

Now, if we look up at that last image, we can see Twilight telling her mentor and teacher to “Ignore the one on the end.” You know, it seems like having to make those kind of excuses would be awfully… Inconvenient.

It’s Inconvenient Trixie!

She shows up in the darndest places, and always seems to be just about on a poor, exasperated Twi’s last frayed nerve. Maybe a nice refreshing drink would help take the edge off, Twi.


An Inconvenient Trixie

Ingredients:

  •     3oz Blue Curacao Liqueur
  •     3oz amaretto
  •     3oz coconut rum
  •     6oz half-and-half
  •     Two NON-CHILLED rocks glasses.
  •     Masking Tape
  •     Googly Eyes.
  •     One 16 oz container.
  •     Ice


Special Equipment:

If Googly Eyes and Masking Tape aren’t special equipment for a drink, I don’t know what are.

Making an Inconvenient Trixie:

  1.     Pour all of your liquids into the 16 oz container.
  2.     Stir well.
  3.     Place a strip of Masking Tape on the outside of each of the two  rocks glasses.
  4.     Adhere two Googly Eyes an equidistant length apart on each of the strips of tape..
  5.     Place two cubes of ice in each glass.
  6.     Pour drink over ice in each of the two glasses.
  7.     Drink!


You’ve just finished making an Inconvenient Trixie!

This drink not only matches Trixie’s cream-blue coat-color, but with the recipe being as it is, it will produce enough of a beverage that it can’t be easily reduced into a smaller portion, meaning that in that the recipe requires the production of two portions of this drink, it is, in and of itself, Inconvenient.

Finally. What can I say about the last drink I’m sharing, today. When I started doing this aspect of my blog, the creating recipes portion, I knew this was a drink I wanted to make. It has taken me longer to produce this recipe than any other I have worked on. I feel that it is absolutely, 100% justified in being a recipe that has taken this length of time, to get absolutely, utterly correct. The story it honors is about growth. It’s about adventure. It’s about life. And it’s about one brave little pony learning that with a hat on her head, and friends by her side, there wasn’t anything she couldn’t do, if she put her mind to it.

It’s Woona, of Moonstuck!

This little filly went through hell and high water to get from where she started, on the surface of the moon, to where she ended up; but she did it all with aplomb, and dignity, and friends, and fetch quests, and Science. But it’s to her most steadfast and dedicated companion that I honor, with this tip of a… hat. I’ve been working on the recipe this long, that is true. The name of this drink, though? I am PROUD of this one, Dear Drinkers.


A Cartographer’s Cocktail (Both Safe For Woona, and Not Safe For Woona Editions!)

Ingredients:

  •    4 large scoops French Vanilla Ice Cream
  •    1 cup Milk
  •    ½ cup white chocolate chips
  •    SUPER CHILLED, LIKE, FROZEN, LIKE, LITERALLY LEAVE THIS IN THE FREEZER OVERNIGHT Rocks Glass(es).
  •    2 shots White Chocolate Godiva Liqueur (Or White Chocolate Syrup)
  •    Whipped Cream
  •    A White Hibiscus for each drink you pour.
  •    Chocolate Syrup or Magic Shell.


Special Equipment:

A thin-tip paintbrush you’ve never used to paint, or for any other project, and that is 100% clean, and that you yourself have washed and scrubbed clean. A plate, A Blender.

Making a Cartographer’s Cocktail:

  1.     Squeeze an amount of Chocolate Syrup or Magic Shell onto plate, and place Paint-Brush near the plate.
  2.     Remove glass from freezer, and quickly move to plate and brush
  3.     Using Brush, and Syrup, Draw dotted lines, X’s, O’s, and other landmarks on the INSIDE of the glass. Do not hesitate to pop the glass back inside the freezer to help the syrup or shell set. Do not over-decorate.
  4.     Place glass back inside Freezer after decorating.
  5.     Put Ice cream, milk, chips, and Liqueur (for a Not Safe For Woona Version) OR the White Chocolate Syrup (For a Safe For Woona Version) in the blender.
  6.     .Blend until smooth,
  7.      Remove glass(es) from freezer.
  8.      Pour drink into glass.
  9.      Garnish drink with flower and Whipped Cream.
  10.     Drink!

You’ve just finished making a Cartographer’s Cocktail, in honor of Moonstuck!

The interior decoration of the glass is meant to evoke the image of Woona’s ever-trusty headpiece; it will also melt into the drink as you drink it, altering the change of the flavor as you work yourself through your beverage. The White Hibiscus is meant to evoke the moon-flower by which Woona establishes her friendship with the Batponies. Doing two versions of this drink lets me take it even one step further, and make use of both Not Safe For Woona, and Safe For Woona. I really, really hope that this one manages to properly honor this effort.

Keep sending in suggestions as to who you’d like to see made into a drink, and Stay Thirsty, my friends!
