Review:

It may be creamy, but this cocktail has a kick. It tastes and looks, much better with a quality white crème de cacao than a dark crème de cacao. A generous splash of sweet, low alcohol strength coconut liqueur surprisingly doesn't overly sweeten and adds nutty depth to the cacao. The nutmeg dusting is critical and much more than a mere garnish.
