Ring in the New Year with The Amorsolo Nude, a Philippine cocktail to go with a fantastic buffet of Filipino food. When I found this cocktail drink recipe, I thought it was just the right accompaniment to the avalanche of desserts. Its full bodied, thick, wholeness seeps into your senses sweet and slow.
You’ll enjoy its sweetness from the Kahlua, Bailey’s and dark rum. Blend it all up and it’ll be perfect to indulge on. Here’s to many more delightful drinks and wonderful things in the New Year for all of you. Cheers!
