It is believed to have originated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and has been a popular choice among patrons in supper clubs and lounges. The cocktail gets its signature pink hue from the addition of Creme de Noyaux, a liqueur made from apricot kernels. The cream and Creme de Cacao contribute to its smooth and rich texture, making it a perfect after-dinner drink. The Pink Squirrel has a sweet and nutty flavor profile, with hints of chocolate and almond. It is typically served in a martini or coupe glass, garnished with a cherry for a touch of sweetness. This classic cocktail remains a favorite among those with a sweet tooth.
