3.5 shots out of 5
Monday. Yes I said it, the "M" word. It marks yet another week of cocktails. I know I've said it before, but when I sit back and think about it, I CAN NOT believe that I have found/received, made, tried and blogged about 159 cocktails!! Plus the fact that there are SOOOO MANY more out there for me to try.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. I received tonight's cocktail from Sandi. Sandi wanted to invent a cocktail that tasted like some of her favorite ice creams, so she invented the Raspberry Truffle. She gave me a few options on the vodka, so I went with the Raspberry Vodka. This is a yummy cocktail! I first strained it into a martini glass and it warmed up quickly and didn't taste as good as I knew it should. Then I poured that into the glass below with some ice, stirred it up and it tasted a lot better. This is a nice creamy cocktail that goes down smooth. It's been husband and Stephanie (The Crockpot Lady) approved as well!
Here is the recipe for a Raspberry Truffle:
- 2 oz Irish cream
- 2 oz black raspberry liqueur
- 1 oz raspberry vodka
- 1/4 oz chocolate syrup
In a shaker add ice and all ingredients above. Shake it up real well and strain it into a cocktail glass filled with ice. This will strain slow due to the Irish cream and chocolate syrup, so be patient........or not like I was and shake the hell out of it while it's straining.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Thank You Sandi for a quite yummy cocktail! That was a great way to start of another week of cocktails!
