Happy New Year and a Girly Cocktail!

After purchasing a new bottle of Frangelico to make Giandua Souffles, I searched my trusty cocktail books and found this recipe for a "Russian Quaalude." This wonderful cocktail tastes like dessert and goes down quite easily (which I payed for the next morning), so be careful! It's a perfect choice for those who don't like the taste of alcohol, like me. In addition, you can make these in festive shot-form by first pouring 1 ounce of Frangelico into a 3-4 ounce glass, slowly pour 1 ounce Irish cream over the back of a spoon (aka., "float") to layer it on top of the Frangelico. Next, float 1 ounce vodka over the Irish cream. Voila! Now you're ready for a party! Happy New Year!
