For those not in the know, Boston is painfully cold right now. What better way to wile the winter away than some fancy cocktails!? This is how the wife and I managed our evening:
Clockwise, we have: A rich chocolate martini, almond-berry fizz, daikon cooler, and dry cinnamon cordial. All were well received, and a few remixed for additional enjoyment. Read on for full recipes (all are quite simple).
Rich Chocolate Martini
- 3 oz chocolate infused vodka, using Mars Bars
- 1/2 chocolate truffle
Leave chocolate vodka in freezer for at least a few hours. Shake well and strain into a small glass. Garnish with half a truffle (or chocolate shavings). Top with cream if desired.
- 2 oz almond infused vodka
- soda water
- splash cranberry juice
Fill a rocks glass (or similar small glass) with ice and add almond infused vodka. Fill with soda water and add a splash of cranberry juice.
Fill a rock glass with ice and add first three ingredients. Stir lightly, top with soda water, and garnish with a lemon wedge.
Dry Cinnamon Cordial
Fill cordial or shooter with cinnamon infused vodka and serve neat.
