Angel's Delight

I'm not exactly one for shots, but this was delicious. Plus, it gave me the chance to do some layering, which isn't something I often do....because I'm not exactly one for shots...


Angel's Delight:
  • 1/4 oz. Grenadine
  • 1/4 oz. triple sec
  • 1/4 oz. Creme Yvette
  • 1/4 oz. cream
Pour carefully in order given into Pousse Cafe (shot) glass, so that each ingredient floats on the proceeding one.

Speaking of floating ingredients, let's see what Jamie Boudreau has to say on the subject.

In a word, delicious. Quick word of warning: I don't actually own any Creme Yvette, but it's long been said that you can sub Creme de Violette for Creme Yvette. Both are flowery liqueurs that are purple in color, though Creme Yvette has more of a vanilla and citrus taste to it. Still, quite delicious. The flowery taste is really something that is foreign to the American palate; we don't eat flowers, by and large. I'm not sure if it's more appropriate in other countries, or if it's a hold-over from a time gone by, but the orange, pomegranate and violet flavors all meld together interestingly in this drink. Also, it's really, really girly (read, sweet).
