Polar Vortex cocktail


My friend Cathy of Life with More Cowbell challenged me to make a Polar Vortex cocktail. I immediately pictured a snowy swirling drink. Gold flakes swirling in snow! Goldschläger! But of course you can’t actually SEE the gold flakes swirling. But you can taste the lovely cinnamon, which is almost as good.

2 oz melted vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 oz vodka (I thought of buying Polar Ice, but I had vodka in the freezer already)
Shake together over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Float 1/4 oz of Goldschläger on top.
