I'm very fond of nice chewy, deep chocolate brownies and my favorite of all is a dark chocolate brownie baked with cream cheese batter. There's just something about that cream cheese and chocolate mixture that has me totally addicted.
Since I love doing cocktails inspired by food and national food holidays, I decided it was time to create and mix up a few of these.
CREAM CHEESE BROWNIE
2 Oz Dark Creme de Cacao
1 Oz Whipped Cream Vodka
1/2 Tsp. Espresso Powder
2 Drops Vanilla Bitters
Garnish: 4 Tablespoons Lightly Whipped Heavy Cream, Dusting of Espresso Powder, 1" Cube of a Cream Cheese Brownie
Lightly whip your heavy cream to soft peaks then set aside.
Fill your shaker with ice then shake ingredients until chilled.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, gently pour on the lightly whipped heavy cream, garnish and serve.
