This cocktail was inspired by my favorite decadent cocktail, the Atholl Brose. I wanted to make a variation on it using Mr Black and tikified! It is a delicious and rich dessert drink, but not too sweet believe it or not. The drink’s namesake is an Australian heavyweight wrestler, Earl Black, instead of the Earl of Atholl. His career was cut short by injuries, but he held the Australian heavyweight title. He was said to be a sadist with a heart of gold, this is a toast to the champ!
Add all ingredients except amaretto and heavy cream to a shaker and shake with ice. Double strain into a chilled coupe
Prepare an amaretto whipped cream in your shaker with the heavy cream and amaretto
Shake until it is frothy but still loose and flowing. To speed this up add a strainer coil to your shaker
Float this over the top of the cocktail and garnish with a grating of fresh nutmeg
