The Candy Cane

3 parts golden rum
2 parts cream
1 part lemon
3/4 part praline liqueur
3/4 part créme de noyeux (almond)
1/2 part Frangelico (hazelnut) liqueur

Not much to say about this one, only that it's a fatally seductive preparation, guaranteed to lift your spirits and assuage your ills. With addition of the praline flavor, there are hints of the Deep South, perhaps New Orleans, though I doubt this drink has ever been mixed there. Like all the other concoctions featured on this blog, it's my own invention--I never consult the literature of mixology in devising my combinations.
