Hey everyone!  It's me.  I am soooo excited to show you all this cocktail I just created!  Soooo sooooo excited.  Can you say chocolatey? (Side note, I'm not a huge chocolate fan...but this here cocktail, oh my!)  

Tiramisu is my husbands and my dessert.  Reason being is that when we went to Tahoe for a snowboarding trip all of those years ago, my husband proposed and for our engagement dessert they gave us a tiramisu.  From then on, it has always held a very special place in my heart.
I know.........I know.........it's been a while since my last post.  A little bit over a month to be exact, but I will tell you it's been absolutely crazy around here.  Anyone else have 4 kids in school ranging from a senior in high school (gasp.....I need to stop saying that out loud--maybe it won't be true) to a kindergartner?  Between the 4 different times they are getting out of school to the four different levels of homework, throw in a couple different sports, trying to figure out college paths, second grade field trips.......you know what I'm going to stop right there or I might make myself another one of these SUPER DELICIOUS cocktails to drink.

It has definitely been a while since I have made a cocktail where I drizzle chocolate syrup inside of the glass.




I had forgotten how much fun it was to drink a cocktail like that!  I also rimmed the glass with chocolate syrup as well as cocoa powder.

Then it's just mixing the ingredients, shaking and straining.  Yup, it's THAT easy!

Here's to the last couple days of September, yup, there goes another month!  I am looking forward to October though.  I can't wait to start decorating the house for Halloween and creating Halloween and Fall type cocktails!

Cheers!
