Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

“Sometimes You Feel Like a nut, sometimes ya don’t!”

Do you remember that old jingle about Almond Joy and Mounds candy bars? How could you not! Written by Leo Corday and Leon Carr and sung by Joey Levine, the tv commercial first aired in January 1977. We were feeling nostalgic so we decided to craft a delicious, dessert cocktail that resembles the taste of these famous candy bars.

The star ingredient here is our Black Reserve Bourbon of course. This dessert cocktail is perfect for a relaxing night-in. So simple to make but the flavor is bursting after every sip. These are not meant to be taken as shots, enjoy them sip by sip. The bourbon really brings out the best in these ingredients. Enjoy with responsibility.

  • 1 1/2 oz Black Reserve

  1. Note: To make the Mounds version, leave out the Amaretto.
