It's Not Just Popcorn!

Liquid Raspberry Truffle

on January 28, 2011

I know today’s post will be short. I’ve been fighting a cold all week and I start my new job on Monday so I’ve been crazed. I am going to try and get next week’s blogs done before I start working just in case I’m too tired after rejoining the working world. So bear with me next week!

This little cocktail is more like a dessert with a kick! It great for after dinner. And it’s such a pretty color too! But when you get past the color you’ll find it very tasty. Just be careful because they are stronger than you think!

INGREDIENTS:

2 ounces raspberry vodka

2 ounces Godiva chocolate liqueur

2 ounces Chambord

2 splashes heavy cream

cocoa powder/chocolate shavings

DIRECTIONS:

In a cocktail shaker with ice, shake the ingredients. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sprinkle top with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings.

Makes 2 cocktails

**Variation: For a frosty version, combine the ingredients in a blender with 1 cup crushed ice. Or for a creamier drink 1 cup vanilla ice cream and blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled wine glass.

You can dip the rims of the chilled cocktail glasses into a shallow bowl of chocolate liqueur, then rim with unsweetened cocoa powder.
