Angel's Kiss

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1 part Crème De Cacao
  • 1 part Brandy
  • 1 part Whipped Cream

Layer the ingredients in the order listed above in a pony glass.

'Angel' drinks are the original shooters created during the Jazz Age. The following recipes appear as originally designed to be served layered in a 1-ounce pony glass. If you wish to serve this drink in a larger glass, the recipe amounts need to be adjusted upward. Layering is achieved by pouring slowly over the back of a spoon held against the inside of the glass (see Pousse Cafe). The cream should be lightly whipped without sugar, as in an Irish Coffee, and ladled on top.
