It’s almost the weekend, my friends! And that means it’s time for a cocktail. When I’m out, I love ordering fun cocktails off the menu (or one of my favorite martinis), but when I’m doing the bartending, I’m all about the easy cocktails that don’t take too much effort. A “Nutty Berry” is Hallie‘s mom’s go-to after-dinner drink and it’s become one of our favorites over the years, too. I recently picked up the three ingredients to be able to make it at home!
To be honest, I’m not usually a fan of sweet cocktails, but this one always hits the spot at the end of the night! It’s perfectly sweet (takes the place of dessert!) and you usually just need one after dinner. They don’t taste strong, but every ingredient contains alcohol soooo… there’s that. Hallie‘s mom says they’re also known by the name “Nuts & Berries,” but we’ve yet to find many bars or restaurants that know the drink with either name… We always ended up texting Mrs. Wilson for the recipe to relay to the bartender!
*Shaken* and served over ice. That’s it!
Shaken is definitely key. We always find that we like it best after it “marinates” for a minute or two… i.e. the ice melts a little and waters it down a tiny bit.
FYI: These lowball glasses are from C.Wonder years ago!
