Snowed In?

Let us just start by saying that we planned this post a few weeks ago.  At that time we had noooo idea that the Midwest would be under a winter storm warning.  Currently there is close to a foot of snow on the ground for many of our Midwest followers.  When we created this recipe and came up with the name, we did not realize that the universe was listening so closely.  We apologize.  However, we are sharing a delicious, chocolaty drink with you that we aptly named  Snowed In.  We felt that reflected the weather in much of the country for this time of year. (Yes, parts of Texas did receive some snow two weeks ago.) It has a little chocolaty goodness, a little bit of coffee and a lot of yum!

There are three main ingredients in Snowed In: Crystal Head Vodka, Cafe Borghetti, and Kerrygold Irish Cream.  Put them together and shake with a little ice, and presto you have a fabulous cocktail to drink next to the warm fire.

We used chocolate syrup, semi-sweet chocolate shavings and a few espresso beans for garnish.  We showed you our trick for garnishing with chocolate syrup last year when we made Who Needs Half Price Shakes Before 8?

We’ve made this tasty little drink a couple of times now, and we think we like it more and more every time we make it.  It would be perfect to serve to guests as a dessert drink.  We would love to hear what you think!

The next time you are snowed in or not, shake up this cocktail to keep you warm on the inside as you cuddle up next to the fire with your honey.
