Flying Saucer

This isn't a drink I learned in class, but it is similar to a toasted almond, only blended. It's a very good drink that tastes similar to a milk shake. Preparation is done in a blender. I use a little cinnamon powder and a cinnamon stick for garnish.
  • Blender half filled with ice
  • 2 oz. Amaretto or almond flavored liquor
  • 2 oz. Kaluah or coffee flavored liquor
  • 4 sticks of cinnamon
  • Sprinkling of cinnamon powder
  • Cream or half and half

To the blender half filled with ice, add the amaretto and kaluah. Next, add the cream or half and half until about 3/4 full. Blend at high speed until the ice is thoroughly crushed. THe volume will increase during this process.

Pour the resulting mixture into serving glasses (a wine or martini glass is suitable), sprinkle a little cinnomon on top of each and place a cinnamon stick in the drink. Serve immediately.
