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
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!
