Chocolate Covered Cranberry

Did I have you at chocolate?  I'm going to sweeten the deal and say cranberry too!  This Chocolate Covered Cranberry is the PERFECT cocktail to help you celebrate Valentine's Day.......or any day really!


Perfect blend of chocolate whipped vodka and cranberry juice.

A new year is upon us!  I for one am very excited about it.  Last year wasn't the best for me or my family with the loss of my mom.

I do believe in fresh starts though!

I was funny because of course the holidays were hard, but something clicked in me on New Years Eve and I was actually excited for the celebration and what it brought.  A BRAND NEW YEAR!

Something inside of me has been turned back on and I've already started cleaning, tried new recipes (I got an Instapot a year and 2 months ago, and FINALLY opened the box and used it), and just started enjoying life more!

Feels pretty darn good too!


Today I want to give you a recipe I created.  It's pink, which reminds me of Valentine's Day.  Not that we're big Valentine's Day celebrators over here, but sometimes a pink cocktail is just called for.

Perfect blend of chocolate whipped vodka and cranberry juice.


This cocktail is an easy one to make and it packs a good amount of flavor too.  You can really taste the chocolate and cranberry flavors inside.  Yum!!



You can't go wrong with chocolate whipped vodka.


Cranberry juice just seals the deal on the yum scale!




Here is my recipe, which I know you'll enjoy especially if you enjoy cranberry juice in your cocktails.

  • 1 1/2 ounces chocolate whipped vodka
  • 2 ounces cranberry juice

Here's to a New Year and a new fresh start!  I hope this year is the best ever for you all!
