Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us
(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#62: Angel Kiss (floater)
1 oz Milk or Cream
Float the milk or cream on top.
Was I kissed by an angel? Not really. This is a little sweet floater with little alcohol. Nothing special here.
Since it is separated as a floater, you taste the milk first, but you really need to down this in one shot to get both flavors. They go together well, but really to no special effect.
Found this awesome photo on the net the other day. This just shouts "cool". Michael Caine is obviously telling some sort of witty anecdote, and Morgan Freeman is having the time of his life. I think that is Liam Neeson on the right, but not sure. But I love the contrast in this picture, the focus on the mates at the bar, good drinks all around. But the more I looked at it, the more I realized that I was looking at it the wrong way.
The best part for me is that it really doesn't matter who is in this picture. If it was just regular folks, you and me, I think it might even be more interesting. Hopefully we've all had this moment in our lives. Happy, carefree, having some good times and tales with friends over a drink, or food, or whatever we like.
These guys just happen to be famous. Who says we can't be just like them?
