Angel’s Delight

Angel’s Delight isn’t quite as frou frou as it sounds – or looks. With a light pink, opaque color, it certainly looks like something an angel might delight in. But beneath all those features that make it look like something you’d drink while floating on a cloud, it’s got gin, triple sec and grenadine adding sharpness and depth to the flavor.

The Angel’s Delight is great for when you want something sweet and easy, but not a dessert drink. This is also a nice one for parties – you can definitely make it up as a big batch recipe a couple of hours beforehand and serve it up then. (Because this one uses cream, I wouldn’t recommend leaving it too long, even in the fridge. But then, why would you want to?)
