Milk Maid

3/4oz Nocino della Cristina
1/2 oz Galliano
1/2 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz citrus infused vodka
1 oz cream
1 egg white

Shake, with ice, serve in a cocktail class.  Maybe with a preserved cherry or lemon twist spritzed around the rim.

We’ve been searching for a cocktail to features Nocino della Cristina but haven’t had a lot of success until now.  That amazing walnutiness comes through clearly neither fighting with or overpowering the other spirits.  The Cointreau and infused vodka lend just a hint of citrus that peaks through the otherwise dark, herbally flavor.

We’ll try it with Grand Marnier and cognac next but I suspect the Cointreau and vodka keep it from becoming too heavy.

We’re looking forward to celebrating St. John the Baptist this year in addition to Emily’s birthday to the heady smell of black-end fingers and chattering of the squirrels by making our own Nocino.
