Definitely not for the faint of heart, Joyous Almond cocktail speaks to the serious candy loving cocktail lover. Though there are more ingredients involved in this cocktail than I’d usually like to list, they can be found easily and be used for many future cocktails or desserts. Joyous Almond pairs well with birthdays, Girls Night Out, in place of indulgent desserts or any darn time you feel like splurging on a few extra moments lingering over a decadent cocktail. It’s also a great adult replacement candy bar cocktail for Halloween! Trick or Treat for your glass!

    Looks rich and delicious – though I try to take it easy on the sweets when I have the willpower. I actually have all these ingredients on hand right now, so my willpower is probably not what I think it is! Lol. Thanks for the recipe, it’s now in my Drinks to Try folder :)
