Cicada Cocktail

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Amaretto / American / Whisky

1 1/2  ounces  Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
1/2  ounce  amaretto
2  ounces  cream
1  teaspoon  superfine sugar

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a rocks glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Those familiar with the Grasshopper cocktail (named for its green color) will understand why this one is called the Cicada (they're a bit browner). Even though the real cicadas turn up the volume in the spring and summer, this rich, frothy cocktail is a luscious cold weather libation akin to classic boiled custard--be sure to check our bold custard recipe for the holidays too.
