here’s to satisfying that sweet tooth!

As a special after-dinner treat, I thought why waste those calories on a piece of cake or a crumbly cookie… instead why not just delve into the seductive and lethal world of a martini!
This isn’t just an ordinary martini though, rather a rich and silky concoction that with each sip offered the ability to breakdown those barriers and be a little naughty…
Godiva chocolate liqueur, hazlenut liqueur, creme de cacao and vodka all go into a shaker with just a bit of ice. Really go at it and whip that drink up in there, and what pours out… a frothy, velvety smooth little devil! To top off, some simple shavings of dark chocolate…
Sipped slowly, but enjoyed fully this sexy little libation should come with a warning label…

***instead of the chocolate shavings, you can play around and rim the glass with some chopped hazelnuts and sugar***

lethal libations…

For an ending to a great Monday, I decided to have a nice [and strong] cocktail…
Since I wasn’t in Manhattan tonight, the best thing to do was to bring Manhattan to me… well in the form of a lethal, vintage libation!
Good bourbon, sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters is shaken till chilled, and then a cherry is tossed in to finish off this smooth drink…
Maybe a nightly cocktail is necessary going forward!
