Angel’s Tip Cocktail Recipe

A pousse-café is a type of layered drink as gorgeous as it is delicious. The angel’s tip is an excellent example of this type of drink. Drinks like the B-52 shooter originated in the layered piles of shots from yesterday and the pousse-café glass served in today’s cocktail bars. They are amazing dessert cocktails, often featuring indulgent flavors like the dark chocolate, cherry, and cream seen in this cocktail. Prohibition began in the 1930s, and the recipe traces back to that time. It has also been known by other names (the “p” is sometimes exchanged for a “t” for a more suggestive name, and the angel is sometimes substituted with a witch). However you choose to refer to it, the cocktail’s name likely came from the way it looked at the end: It looks like a creamy mountain topped with a cherry. In any case, it is an excellent indulgence, and there are several ingredients you can use to make it.
