Chocolate Covered Cherries Cocktail

I was thrilled when Dee asked me to guest post for her. But I knew I had to bring a fun recipe that y’all would enjoy! So…I decided to try a cocktail that recreates the flavors of my all-time favorite holiday treat….the Chocolate Covered Cherry!

I only buy them once a year. Why? Because I would end up weighing a gazillion pounds because I would eat them all. Yes, I really would. I have absolutely Z.E.R.O self-control. Although, that’s probably not a good thing when creating a drink to taste like my favorite treat. This is probably a disaster waiting to happen!

Today, I’m also featuring a cocktail on Around My Family Table, a Peppermint Martini. I thought it would be fun to link them together…in case you need some ideas for a cocktail or holiday party!

Chocolate Covered Cherries Cocktail

Serves 1

4 oz Kahlua
1 oz vodka
2 tsps chocolate syrup
2 tsps maraschino cherry juice
maraschino cherries and chocolate shavings, opt

Add Kahlua, vodka, chocolate syrup, cherry juice, and ice to cocktail and shake well.

Place one maraschino cherry in the bottom of a martini glass with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, if desired.

Pour drink, through a strainer, into martini glass. Sprinkle on chocolate shavings and add a cherry to the rim for garnish!

    This sounds yummy and looks so sweet.

  2. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy – I can’t wait to make this!!!

  3. Life doesn’t get much better than good alcohol and good chocolate…Sign me up for that party :)

  4. That looks great! I love chocolate covered cherries, too (as long as it’s liquid inside, instead of creamy). And I found another recipe that calls for Kahlua and then wondered what I’d do with a whole big bottle of it. This could help with that ;)

    This sounds so good. It would be great to make for a special party. I will have to keep this in mind for New year’s.

  6. Thomas says:

    I love chocolate but I love white chocolate more than the brown or dark one. Is it possible to use white chocolate for this recipe? Do you think the taste would be ok? I also am planning to create these without the alcohol for the kids and those who don’t drink alcohol. I think they are going to love it.
