Reindeer Tracks

Day 295

Reindeer Tracks
3.5 shots out of 5

Tomorrow is Friday!  These weeks are going by so fast it only seems like yesterday that I was complaining that it was only Monday.  Love it when that happens!!  This weekend my husband will be putting up our Christmas lights......which utterly excites me!  I love driving home at night and seeing our house lit up and our Christmas tree through the window.  Those simple things make me happy.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I am not a big Frangelico fan.  I can not remember which cocktail did it to me, but ever since I drank it, I have moved Frangelico up that ladder where tequila sits at the top of.  I remember!  It was my Chocolate Cake Shot.  I know there are a lot of you out there that like the Chocolate Cake Shot and are cursing me right now, but I just did not like it as much as I had hoped I would.  To enjoy Frangelico, I need a cocktail that has it as one of the "smaller" ingredients, as opposed to one of the "main" ingredients.  Back to tonight's cocktail.......ahhh, it was pretty good, not fantastic, but pretty good.  If you are a Frangelico fan, I think you'll really enjoy this one.  I found this recipe at the singlemindedwomen site.

Here is the recipe for Reindeer Tracks:

  • 2 oz chocolate vodka (I used Pinnacle Chocolate Whipped)
  • 1 oz hazelnut liqueur
  • 1/2 oz dark creme de cacao
  • 1/4 oz cream
  • cookie crumbles for rimming martini glass
Rim your martini glass with your cookie crumbles.  In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the cookie crumbles.  Shake and strain your cocktail into your rimmed martini glass.
