The story I've heard about the origin of the Angel's Tit is that it was a popular dessert cocktail around the time of Prohibition. The name is likely to come from the look of the finished cocktail, a creamy mountain topped with a cherry in exactly the right place.

At any rate, it is an excellent indulgence and some recipes skip the creme de cacao altogether while others say to chill the finished drink for 30 minutes. That does help it keep it's shape and since there is no ice involved, it is nice to have it a little colder.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

  1. Pour the white creme de cacao into a cordial or cocktail glass.
