White Chocolate Raspberry Kiss

Day 363



White Chocolate Raspberry Kiss
4 shots out of 5


Tomorrow our oldest girl turns 4.  Thursday is Valentine's Day and Friday is the very last day (Day 366 thanks to Leap Year) of my year long challenge.  I knew I would make it, as I am NOT a quitter..........but I just didn't realize how quickly this year would go by.  I am kind of in shock that I am mere days away from the end.  I will not be tossing away this blog by any means, but with the extra time on my hands (total joke.......I have 4 kids) I do want to add extra things to my blog and maybe even change things around a little.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.   With Valentines Day vastly approaching, I decided to create a Valentine's cocktail.  I call it, White Chocolate Raspberry Kiss (before you ask, YES I could have made it longer, haha).  This cocktail is a bit strong and every 3 sips gives you a little bit of a vodka bite, but I like it.  I hope you like it too if you do decide to try it.  I hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday evening.......with a cocktail of course!

Here is my recipe for a White Chocolate Raspberry Kiss:

  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur
  • 1 oz Chambord
  • 1/2 oz white cream de cacao
  • white chocolate shavings
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the white chocolate shavings.  Shake and strain into a white chocolate shavings rimmed martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to the 3 more days that remain of my year long challenge.  I'm proud of myself for sticking to it and blogging every single day for a year.  I'm proud of you for sticking with me too!!

Cheers!!

  2. I'm very impressed that you've blogged a cocktail every single day! I haven't kept up with all of the cocktails since I can't fit even one more bottle in my liquor cabinet, but eventually I'll try most of them! Thanks for all the cool drinks!

    2. Foot has still not regained its previous strength, but I'm getting around fine. Back to my daily lunchtime walks (at least when the weather is decent) and eventually I'll get the strength back. Doctor said it might take a year! I'm too old to be breaking bones :) Thanks for asking!

  3. Oh boy does this look yummy! I just ran out to buy the Godiva and some vanilla vodka so I can make this!

    And thank you for publishing the cocktail I submitted (Kentucky Waffle), I feel famous! Or at least infamous!

    1. Kate, you're famous in my mind! Anybody who can give me a cocktail recipe with an alcohol that I'm not fond of and make me like it?!?! That's amazing to me! Thank You!

  4. I'm so glad you liked that one! Whisky is my first choice, unless champagne is an option! :) I'm glad I could make a convert, even if just for one day!
