The Dream

by Yani Frye, Bad Luck Bar, Detroit, MI.

“To evoke a feeling of nostalgia was easy with the Dream cocktail. With a taste of lightly sweetened milk at the end of a big bowl of cereal, one sip takes you back to a younger time while watching your favorite Saturday morning cartoons. The cinnamon infused Irish whiskey adds a layer of depth and complexity. Serve in a chilled mini milk bottle for maximum fun!”

• 1 oz. half & half infused with Cap'n Crunch cereal (directions below)
• .5 oz. Honey syrup
• 2 oz. Powers Irish whiskey infused with cinnamon (directions below)

To create cereal half & half, fill a mason jar full with Cap'n Crunch cereal. Fill to top with half & half. Shake a few times over course of an hour and strain.To create honey syrup, combine raw honey with equal parts by weight to hot water. Stir to combine and let cool.

To create cinnamon whiskey, add 3 hard cinnamon sticks to a bottle of whiskey. Lightly shake every so often. Strain after at least 24 hours.

Combine ingredients in shaker without ice and shake. Add ice and shake hard for a second time. Strain into a chilled glass.
