Ingredients

  • 3  Ounces  half-and-half
  • 1  Tablespoon  honey
  • 3/4  Ounces  hazelnut liqueur
  • 1  Ounce  brandy
  • 3-4  drops of orange water
  • pinch cinnamon, additional for garnish
  • 1  Tablespoon  crushed pistachios

Directions

On a small saucer, drizzle a thin layer of honey; spread the crushed nuts on a second saucer. Turning the martini glass upside down into the saucer with honey, lightly coat the rim. Next, dip the honey-rimmed glass into the nuts to coat the edge of the glass. Set aside.

Fill a shaker with ice, add the first 6 ingredients and shake vigorously to chill and combine thoroughly. Strain the drink into martini glass and sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top.

Baklava Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Baklava Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
