Chocolate Covered Marshmallow

Who doesn't love a chocolate covered marshmallow?  This cocktail is light and tastes delicious!

We made it!  

Oh I honestly wasn't sure if we would, but it is finally Friday!  

Apparently the terrible 2's do not end exactly when the 2-year old turns three.....  

Never the less, it is Friday and today the Make A Wish Foundation has turned San Francisco into Gotham City for a 5-year old boy who has leukemia.  

Today he is going around town saving a woman from the cable car tracks, saving Lou Seal (our SF Giants mascot), fighting The Riddler and The Penguin!  

How fun!  

Things like this warm my heart.

After my last two cocktails which were flops, I decided to have a go at it on my own.  
I thought chocolate would be a good start.....oh maybe a chocolate rimmed martini glass? (haven't done a rimmed cocktail glass in a while).  I looked through my vodkas and noticed that I haven't used the marshmallow one in a while either, so there you have it.  

I decided to create a Chocolate Covered Marshmallow.

This cocktail is pretty good.  

It is light and easy to drink......good thing?  

Bad thing?  

Ah, who cares, it's Friday!  

I am really enjoying my cocktail though.  

Tomorrow our newly turned three year old will be celebrating her birthday with family, which is almost too much for her to handle in the excitement category.  

Then on Monday our girls will be getting (as long as the shipping doesn't take longer then that) their very own bunk bedmore excitement alert!  

I sure hope that I can last until then!

Here is my recipe for a Chocolate Covered Marshmallow:

  • 1 1/2 ounces marshmallow vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces chocolate liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce cream
  • 1/2 ounce milk
  • chocolate shavings

Rim a martini glass with chocolate shavings.  In a shaker, add ice, marshmallow vodka, chocolate liqueur, cream and milk.  Shake and strain into chocolate shaving rimmed martini glass.  Sprinkle more chocolate shavings on top.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Try a new cocktail!
