For fans of classic Alpine mountain backdrops, look to the resort towns of St. Moritz and Arosa, where the Tschuggen Grand Hotel is located.
In Tschuggen’s rec room-like basement lounge (hence the drink name), this fortifying nightcap evokes the feeling of a sweetened glass of milk with an adult twist. It’s even served in a small glass-milk bottle, enlivened by a red-and-white striped straw.
- 1½ ounces aged rum
- 1½ ounces Frangelico liqueur
- ¾ ounce Calvados (apple brandy)
- ¾ ounce lime juice
- ¾ ounce vanilla extract
- 1½ ounces cream

In cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all ingredients. Shake well, then strain into glass milk bottle or Collins glass. Serve with colorful straw.
