This weekend was a super busy one! Between working and cleaning the house in preparation of family visiting from out-of-town, we were non-stop. By the time Sunday night rolled around, we finally finished and found ourselves deep in our lounge chairs wishing we didn’t have to get up. An end of the weekend libation was in order, so we headed to our bar to see what we can mix up. I typically have a glass of wine as cocktail of choice but I was in the mood for just a little something different.
My better half prefers stiffer drinks but I prefer to sip on cocktails that are more on the sweeter/creamier side. I’m in no way an expert mixologist but I know what I like and this two ingredient cocktail was super easy and tasty. I combined Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and Black Cherry Effen Vodka and added a couple of maraschino cherries and voila…a nice flavor combination! If you want to add a bit of sweetness to this cocktail, add some whipped cream.
*Makes 1 drink
2 ounces of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
1 ounce of Black Cherry Effen Vodka
2 Maraschino Cherries, plus 2 for garnishing
In a glass, combine the two ingredients. Add ice, two maraschino cherries and stir. Garnish with two more maraschino cherries on a cocktail stick and serve.
