Day 24: Just the Tip

It is the seventh and final day of the Week of Cream.  Some may rest on the seventh day, but not us.  We are here to share our experience with the Angel’s Tip, a shooter composed of crème de cocoa and cream.  This is the third drink out of seven in the WoC to feature crème de cocoa.  It is the seventh out of seven to feature cream.  We will be pretty happy to drink something without cream or crème.

Even though the Week of Cream has ground us down like the overabundance of Kardashians, we managed to soldier on.  The Angel’s Tip was one of the better drinks we had during the WoC but we had a few issues. The first was the size of the drink.  The drink is only .5 oz. total.  What is the point of that?  I guess that is why it is only the Angel’s Tip instead of the Angel’s Whole Thing. 

Now we are part of the problem
The second problem we had is that you are supposed to float the cream on top of the crème.  That turned out to be impossible.  We tried twice and failed both times.  You know the old saying, “if at first you don’t succeed, try one more time and then give up.”  So we did.  I’m not convinced the specific gravity of cream would allow it to float on top of the crème de cocoa.  The final touch was the cherry garnish.  We will admit it looked pretty nifty, but it is clearly an effort to compensate for the lack volume of the drink.  “Look at me!  I’m a cherry on a stick!”  This too reminded us of Kardashians.

Angel's Tip Drink

To recap the Week of Cream:

Day 1: Toasted Almond – Delicious
Day 2: Pink Creole – Another sour mess
Day 3: Golden Cadillac – Should be recalled
Day 4: Cowboy Cocktail – Just add syrup
Day 5: Golden Dream – Just remove Galliano
Day 6: Russian Bear – Bearly missed a perfect 5
Day 7: Angel’s Tip – Left us wanting more.

Overall Rating for the Angel’s Tip

Taste: 5
Ease of Preparation: 3
Presentation: 4 – Might have been a 5 if we could have floated the cream
Drinks until blackout: 50 – You only get 0.0675 oz. of alcohol per drink.  This is a pop gun, not a shooter


.25 oz. Crème de Cocoa
.25 oz. Light Cream
