Nuts and Berries

Category: Creamy N Dreamy
Ingredients: 3/4 oz frangelico, 3/4 oz raspberry liqueur, splash cream (Preparation: shake and strain)
History: This delicious velvety, fruity concoction was named after the infamous and most decorated undercover cops of their generation, Johnny Nuts and Jimmy Berries. In case you were unaware, Brooklyn in the early 70’s was notorious for its illegal underground alcohol distilleries, which were controlled primarily by the Irish mob and Italian mafia. The rivalry was fierce with the Irish trying to corner the fru fru liqueur market with their sweet Irish cream liqueur and the Italians responding by pushing their sweet almond flavored counterpart. The battle for liquor supremacy was immense and the struggle for outright dominance of such a lucrative market, had gone from alleyway brawls, to gun fights spilling out onto the streets. Thousands were being massacred and the authorities had no choice but to step in. Alas, in stepped Johnny Nuts and Jimmy Berries. Nuts and Berries formerly majored in linguistics and also had a background in make-up artistry before joining the force, so infiltrating the groups with their truly genius disguises and near perfect Irish and Italian accents was a simple task. And in just 3 short years of intense undercover work, the decorated duo had soon brought the king pins of both operations to justice. The streets were once again safe and the perpetrators, to this day, are still under lock and key. Nuts and Berries are now retired and spend their days mostly watching repeats of 70’s cop shows, who ironically many people say were actually inspired by the dynamic duo. Their name and legend will live on forever in the form of this delicious creamy and dreamy shot, Nuts and Berries.
