Who’s ready for a drink?
That’s what I thought…
We have started accumulating so many delicious liqueurs and infusions in our liquor cabinet (ok, it is really the coat closet) that it seemed a shame to just let them sit there… time for a fun, new concoction…
German Chocolate Cocktail
1 oz Chocolate Bourbon
1 oz Coconut Liqueur
1/2 oz Walnut Liqueur
1/2 oz White Creme de Cacao
Coconut flakes for garnish
If you’ve read this far, you know what to do…
German chocolate cake usually has pecans instead of walnuts, but I figured this was close enough. I think this would be delicious with any other nut liqueur as well (try it with Frangelico or Amaretto).
We thought it was a nice dessert beverage (and not too sweet). Give it a try and see what you think. Or try some variations and improvisations and share your taste tests with us…

Are you kidding me? I would like to meet the coat closet that turns a cake into a drink on a Thursday afternoon. My coat closet also holds our liquor, but it’s not a very original selection currently. My husband LOVES German chocolate cake, so he’ll think this is sublime.

It’s kind of like the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe… what will be inside…?
Hopefully you can get started on a few recipes and make the unoriginal into something exciting! (Although sometimes the old standards are the best.)

This sounds delicious and dangerous. Still recovering from the chocolate martini from xmas.

Let’s be fair – it wasn’t just ONE chocolate martini! You probably lost count. We need to cut you off sooner next time.
