Let’s get casual with a nightcap.
I’m talking espresso with vanilla cream topped off by a recycled jersey lounge dress.
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/4 cups espresso
1 cup amaretto liqueur
Combine the milk, heavy cream, espresso and amaretto liqueur in a medium saucepan. Place over low heat, stirring constantly until hot but not boiling, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Vanilla Whipped Cream:
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream until thick. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue to beat until cream holds soft peaks.
To serve: Pour the Espresso Nightcap into 4 (8-ounce) mugs. Dollop with the Vanilla Whipped Cream and serve immediately. Cheers my dears!
