Dusty Rose

Dusty Rose cocktail with cherry brandy, white creme de cacao, and heavy whipping cream

The Dusty Rose is a dessert cocktail from Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail. DeGroff’s recipes tend to skew sweet, and this one is no exception, with a rich flavor reminiscent of cherry pie and ice cream. With such a low proof, this one will have you watching your blood sugar rather than your blood alcohol – but if you’re looking for a tasty, creamy drink for dessert, this recipe is hard to beat.

For a slightly less-rich drink, try replacing the heavy cream with sweet cream or half-n’-half.
