Belgian Brownie

With a name like Belgian Brownie, you expect a cocktail to be chocolate. The Belgian Brownie does not disappoint. It even looks like chocolate milk, so you’re supposed to serve it in a very grown-up looking glass to make sure people know you’re having a real drink.

The Belgian Brownie includes another, less expected ingredient: Jenever gin. This is the more strongly juniper flavored stuff, also known as Dutch gin. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s surprising how well it works in this recipe.
