Sweet n' Creamy Cocktails...

Okay, call 'em what you want...but what was the best one you've ever tried??

Yes, most of them have been called martinis, and I know that offends many...but I don't honestly care what they're called, or what kind of glass they are served in (but I do prefer the martini shaped glass because it has a thinner rim)....I just want my drink to taste good, same as my food.

Here are my favorites:

Key Lime Pie "Martini" Key Lime juice, vanilla vodka, licor 43 and cream.... The rim dipped in graham cracker crumbs...mmmm
Banana Truffle "Martini" Banana Liqueur, vanilla vodka and cream
The chocolate martini at Seasons 52...with ice cold chocolate shavings on top

But then, back before crazy martinis were everywhere, I could be happy with a B-52, a sombrero or toasted almond...or just Baileys on the rocks...

I realize many think they'd make better desserts, than drinks...but surely I'm not the only one who likes these more than hard alcohol?
