Liquid Raspberry Truffle

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.

French Margarita

Well we had an Italian margarita and now there is a French margarita. We tried these last weekend and they were quite tasty! Anyone who makes them please leave a comment on the blog letting me know how you liked them! And of course we were enjoying them so much I forgot to take a picture! If you want to see what it looks like go to www.food2.com/recipes/french-margarita and check it out. The picture shown is from that site.  They use raspberries and blackberries for garnish. We didn’t, because we did not have any. Guess we’ll have to make them again so I can take my own pictures this time! The ingredients call for sweet and sour mix. We used our regular margarita mix. Enjoy!

Linda’s Orange Razz Tini

As promised, here is the martini that my cousin Linda had several times when we ventured into the Tini Martini Bar (http://tini-martini-bar.com/) at the Casablanca Inn in St. Augustine. As I said John and I had stayed at the Inn 3 years ago and had fallen in love with the place. Especially after we found out they just opened a martini bar! We were sold. So when we went back the first time it was great. The martinis range from $10.50-$12.50. Yes a little on the higher end BUT they were definitely more than 6 ounce martini glasses. I would say 8 ounces and they filled them to the tippy top! None of this space at the top as most places do. So after we took Linda there the first time we knew we’d be back during our visit. And one afternoon during the daily thunderstorm at about 2pm, we sought shelter at our favorite bar. Thanks to our bartender Jason we were very happy indeed! Ghosts and all! So here is the tini martini that Linda had. I am using measurements that will make a 6 ounce martini. As always feel free to add more depending on your glass size!

INGREDIENTS:

3 ounces orange vodka

3 ounces raspberry vodka

Splash of Chambord

Splash of Cranberry Juice

DIRECTIONS:

Place ingredients in cocktail shaker filled half with ice and shake, shake, shake!! Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orange slice! Nice!
