Chocolate Whipped Cherry
Just like that January is just about over and what do I have to show for it? Two cocktails.......that's it......two measly cocktails. What all has happened in the past 3 (gasp, that's too long) weeks since I have last given you an amazing cocktail? A LOT! There have been many, many, many morning appointments where I was able to be the chauffeur, followed by errands to be run and lunches to be eaten........all of that before I pick up my two girls and the two boys come home. Let's throw in a 100th birthday party? OK! Yes, my grandma turned 100 years old on Tuesday and we threw her a party on Saturday. What a fun, fun time that was!!
The love of my life, my amazing Grandma and me
With January coming to an end, that means Valentines Day is right around the corner......which also means our oldest daughters birthday is on it's way too. Time to start planning for both of those. With about 2 1/2 weeks to go until V-Day, I thought I'd create a fun Valentiney cocktail. Mission accomplished! I was thinking chocolate and cherries and created this DELICIOUS cocktail for you all to try! Super yummy in my book!!
Here is the recipe for a Chocolate Whipped Cherry:
- 1 ounce chocolate whipped vodka
- 1 ounce cherry vodka
- 1 1/2 ounces Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
- 1/2 ounce cherry juice (from the jar of maraschino cherries)
If you wanted to get a little creative, take chocolate syrup and create a design in a martini glass (mine was a heart and you can see the longer it took me to take the photos, the more it started to drip to the bottom, lol). Stick your glass in the freezer to allow the chocolate to harden enough so that it won't run as soon as you pour the cocktail in (10ish minutes).
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake and strain into your chilled martini glass.
Here is a photo of the end result:
notice the heart isn't real drippy
notice as time went on, my heart started to drip and my glass wasn't as chilled

For me time didn't slow down as the new year started. It used to....a few years ago, but not anymore. Here's to January coming to an end and February eager to get started!
