An amari cocktail for the holidays - from wd 12/26/2009

For those looking for a recipe to soothe the winter chill, I might suggest a cocktail I have become fond of:

Tom & Giuseppe
Tom & Jerry go to Italia!

The following recipe makes two four ounce servings.

mix separately first, then added to already combined liquor mixture:
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
¾ tea spoon ground cinnamon
¼ tea spoon ground allspice
1/3 tea spoon ground clove

liquor mixture:
4 oz. “Bombardino” Egg Liqueur G. Bertagnolli (Trentino)
1 oz. The Scarlet Ibis Rum (Trinidad)
1 oz. Amaro “del Capo” Caffo (Calabria)
1/8 oz. Solerno Blood Orange liqueur (Sicilia)

Mix powder into liquor mixture, pour into stainless steel cup for steaming, and add:

¾ oz. whole milk

And steam (with the nozzle of an espresso machine, like you would the milk for a cappucino) the contents until quite warm. Then pour into coffee cup and garnish with a dash of ground nutmeg. Serve.
