Kringle Cream

Kringle is a round Scandinavian Pastry which arrived with Roman Catholic monks in the 13th century. The word Kringle originates from the Old Norse word kringla, which means ring or circle. In the United States, kringles are hand rolled from Danish pastry dough that has been rested overnight before shaping, filling, and baking. Dozens of flaky layers are made into a circular shape, and then filled with fruit, nut, or other flavor combinations before they are baked then iced.

Now that you know more about what a Kringle is, imagine what it tastes like in liquid form. Kringle Cream is the answer. Nordic Distillers in Middleton Wisconsin have created a rum based liquor that tastes exactly like a Kringle should. At 15% alcohol it is not very strong, but quite delicious. It has a sweet buttery nutty flavor to it, and is great for any holiday cocktail. It is not quite as thick as Bailey’s Irish Cream, but can be used as a substitution for Bailey’s in most cocktails. Whether you are trying it on its own, or putting it in your coffee, Kringle Cream will surly please your palate. Below is a list of cocktails that you may want to try this holiday season.
