Almond Joy, creamy cocktail

Almond flavored drinks are fairly common. They range from a few drops of almond syrup, to a full strength amaretto sour, and on to this creamy concoction with a creme de cacao note. While this works well in the after dinner category, its low alcohol content can make it an anytime cocktail.
