Whole Foods Friday: Cocktail time with hazelnut and rum

I've loved creamy cocktails for a long time, and if that creamy drink can be poured into layers, that's a bonus. Of course you're going to stir the drink before you drink it, but the layers make the drink look interesting when you present it.

This one has three distinct layers. I can guarantee that this will layer nicely if you use half-and-half. If you want a lighter drink, you could use milk, but the layers might not hold as well - but then again, you're going to stir it, anyway.

The flavor reminds me a little bit of butterscotch - but a nutty butterscotch.

Creamy Hazelnut and Rum

1 ounce hazelnut liqueur
1 1/2 ounces half and half
1/2 ounce rum

Fill a small glass with ice. Add the hazelnut liqueur, then the half-and-half. Float the rum on top. Serve.
