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