Wrap up bar month with dessert in a glass
"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs -- including guides, the latest trends, rapid bar reviews and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!
Like a filling dinner, OnMilwaukee.com's annual Bar Month is winding down and now that the final course has been brought to the table, we've all earned a sweet dessert.
So, what better way to wrap up a satisfying month of stories about the local bar scene than with some local dessert drinks recipes.
Our own College Dave Mikolajek, serves up Cookies and Cream at Balistreri's Bluemound Inn, 6501 W. Bluemound Rd., and at the risk of rankling some, who prefer it remain a secret, your favorite local barkeep shares it with us:
Cookies and Cream
2.5 generous scoops of ice cream
1 ounce of Irish cream
1 ounce of vodka
1 small handfull of Oreo cookies
Then, says, Mikolajek, "pour it into a proper glass, add whipped cream, sprinkle some Oreo crumbs on top, insert tall staw and serve with a smile."
OnMilwaukee.com Bartender Olympian Michelle Hoff tends bar at Ten Bells, 703 S. 2nd St., in Walker's Point, and is proud of her,
1 ounce Jameson
1.5 ounce fresh espresso
5.5 ounce hot cocoa
Top with fresh whip cream
Serve in an Irish coffee glass
Meanwhile, out west at Jo Jo's Martini Lounge, 418 N. Mayfair Rd., in Wauwatosa -- one of the absolute best places in town to do dessert in a glass -- owner Darrell Dulak shakes up these favorites. But since they're part of his bread and butter, he's letting you work out the subtleties for yourself. The best way to learn? Go to Jo Jo's, order these and watch how it's done. Then try it for yourself.
