Brandied Bonbon Café – created by Cheri Loughlin

1 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce Kahlua Coffee Cream
Orange Zest Garnish

Brandied Bonbon Café tastes exactly like the chocolate covered candied orange gel candies that make the rounds at holiday time. This cocktail turned out delicious! The Kahlua Coffee Cream base is not as thick as some cream liqueur spirits, so the result doesn’t feel sticky or leave unwanted sugary, milky residue lingering in the aftertaste. This is a highly recommended dessert cocktail for the holidays or anytime one wants an added touch of elegance to the after dinner hour.
