Fall Cocktail Recipe: COZY UP WITH A S’MORES CORDIAL

Whether you’re enjoying your evenings by the fire pit or building the first fire of the fall season, savor the cozy moment with this S’mores Cordial cocktail recipe!

Cocktail Recipe: COZY UP THIS FALL WITH A S'MORES CORDIAL

Fall Cocktail Recipe: COZY UP WITH A S'MORES CORDIAL

This weekend was the first time we uncovered our new fire pit. Now mind you, we had our fire pit for a year now but never had the chance to use it. Starting this weekend, we are expected to feel much cooler temps and a nice way to cozy up by the fire is with a warm S’mores cordial! If you love S’mores, I’ll bet you may just enjoy this cordial that has all the ingredients that makes for a tasty drink.

I adapted this recipe from Mrs Lilien’s Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook. The recipe calls for bourbon but I substituted it with Rum Chata instead and for a bit of sweetness, I added sweetened condensed milk. We loved the warm and creamy flavor of this cocktail! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Fall Cocktail Recipe: COZY UP WITH A S'MORES CORDIAL
 
This recipe was adapted from Mrs. Lilien's Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook; "Mrs Campfire Cordial".
Recipe type: Cocktail
Serves: 2

Ingredients
  • 2 Cups of Whole Milk
  • 2 TBSP of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Hershey's Bar, break out 3 individual squares
  • 4 ounces of Rum Chata
  • 2 medium-sized Marshmallows (use jumbo size if you will be using a large cup or mug)
  • 3 Graham Crackers, crushed

Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, and the chocolate pieces to a simmer and stir until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Carefully dip the rims of your cup/mug into the hot chocolate mixture and then onto the Graham Cracker Crumbs.

  4. Pour 1 cup of hot chocolate into each cup and add 2 ounces of Rum Chata in each cup and stir.

Entertaining: BAILEYS ALMANDE-COCONUT FROZEN FRAPPE COCKTAIL RECIPE

BAILEYS ALMANDE COCONUT FROZEN FRAPPE

I’m a sucker for picking out bottles with pretty labels…from candles and wine bottles to champagne and liqueur bottles. Baileys knocked it out of the park with the branding for their recently launched Almande Almondmilk Liqueur that is not only dairy free but gluten free too. Have you tried it yet?

For your convenience, Baileys added three recipes on the back of each liqueur bottle for you to try.  I decided to mix two of their recipes that included coconut water and blended for that frappé taste. The blended combination of nutty, vanilla and coconut flavors, tasted deliciously light and refreshing! This liqueur is perfect for adding to certain cocktails… I’ll be testing out different recipes for the holidays this year!

A TASTY WHITE CHOCOLATE-CHERRY COCKTAIL RECIPE TO TRY

WHITE CHOCOLATE-CHERRY COCKTAIL

WHITE CHOCOLATE-CHERRY COCKTAIL

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

INGREDIENTS

2 ounces of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur

1 ounce of Black Cherry Effen Vodka

2 Maraschino Cherries, plus 2 for garnishing

DIRECTIONS

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.

Cheers!

COCONUT WATER COCKTAIL RECIPE

We have officially moved into the month of August, the time in which we all seem to realize that summer is almost coming to an end. But while the carefree days of summer are still here, enjoy sips of this light and refreshing coconut flavored cocktail – a perfect libation for alfresco entertaining. My future mother-in-law actually made this recipe and when I was told to recreate it and try it, I have to say she was on to something! If you love coconut, you will love this cocktail that has only two ingredients; Goya Coconut Water with Pulp and Malibu Coconut Rum. I must warn you, this cocktail is so light and refreshing that you will forget there is alcohol inside!

To make this cocktail:

In a chilled glass, combine 2 parts coconut rum and top if off with coconut water (with pulp). Serve and Enjoy!
