This is my take on a vintage mid century frozen cocktail from the upper midwest.



1 ounce Creme de Cacao 

1 ounce Creme de Noyaux or Luxardo Cherry Liqueur 

2 ounces heavy whipping cream

Dusting of nutmeg


  1. Place a cup of fresh ice in a blender
  2. Pour the ingredients in and blend for approximately one minute
  3. Pour into a stemmed cocktail glass 
  4. Add a couple of Luxardo cherries into the drink with extra syrup then lightly stir to mix
  5. Dust with a garnish of ground nutmeg (optional)
  6. Add a couple of stemmed cherries for garnish


You can replace the heavy whipping cream and ice with vanilla ice cream in the blender if you prefer.
